An intro to biodynamic craniosacral therapy

I am always trying to find the best words to touching to what this work is doing. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy (BCST) is not just a mouthful of jargon-y words. It’s gentle somatic bodywork for supporting the nervous system and healing trauma. And it’s the best.

We begin here: You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. Within your body is already an abundance of wisdom and health. Even (especially) within disturbances like pain, tension, and trauma response.

BCST uses light touch and somatic awareness to help us tune in to the layers of complex processes always happening in the body. Together, we’ll slow down and notice what’s happening in the fluctuating movements of tissues, fluids, and energy.

BCST can help to release and unwind old patterns, and open up space for new ways of being in the body. A session is an opportunity to rest, to tune in, to connect. 

Over time, BCST can be a resource for developing practices for staying with and processing difficult experiences, and for aligning with our values and commitments. One part of creating new worlds together is finding new ways of relating with our selves — together.

How do you long to feel in your body? How do you long to move in the world? Meeting these longings begins by being with the body as it is, right now.

If you’d like to learn more about working with BCST:

 I really do love connecting with folks through BCST and love answering questions about it!
