what is BCST?
The focus is on your health.
Your body is the most intelligent resource available for healing yourself. It has been there from the beginning, and holds you and your entire lifetime of experiences. By virtue of living, including the tensions, fears, aches and pains, in this moment, there is a deep organizing principle of health that is churning within, expressing an intention. Our deepest healing happens when we work not simply with the symptoms, but with this deep intelligence so that we can facilitate whole-body learned changes from within.
Your body knows how to heal.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a subtle hands-on therapy. Sessions happen with clothing on while lying on a massage table (or whatever position/location works best for your body). Through feather light palpation of the tissues and fluid expressions of the body, an environment is created where your whole being can begin to rediscover deeper relationship with health, safety, and life. Such a reorientation creates change on a many levels, from bodily pains or tensions to mental, emotional and behavioural patterns.
