What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?
“The Biodynamic approach has evolved into a remarkable body therapy that has created a highly skilled way of listening to the body’s inherent health expressions. The therapist typically looks for and encourages the forces of health to set the priorities of the session and to bring about natural adjustments from within the body’s own resources. It is characterized by a strong orientation to the holism of the human experience where both the body’s anatomy and physiology are related to in real time with the subtle forces of life that act through the interface of the body’s fluids. Subtle movements in the body’s fluid and tissue fields are being listened for and the natural movement towards stillness is seen as deeply healing.
The beauty of this therapy is its simplicity. The practitioner takes up a position of being neutral and allows the process of the treatment to unfold. The practitioner is interested in facilitating the body towards intrinsic reorganizations across the body’s tissues, its fluid matrix and its energetic and emotional layers, so that there is a holistic movement towards greater health. The therapy creates a safe space for traumatic experiences to emerge and resolve smoothly without being overwhelming or re-stimulating.
The approach to the work includes a developed model of working with trauma processes. The therapists embodied experience, touch and presence are the key components in creating a Relational Field that generates a deep sense of safety and capacity to heal from within in a client led and paced approach. ” -taken from https://www.bodyintelligence.com/about/what-is-biodynamic-craniosacral-therapy
Free Sessions now available for practice clients
As a current student, I am seeking practice clients locally in Victoria to develop my skills. This is completely separate from my regular osteopathy practice. There is no charge, but I will be recording details from the session and sharing them with a tutor. At present, I am looking for people who are predominately healthy (no chronic illness, post surgery or recent injury) but looking to experience this approach.
- As a practice client, you lie fully clothed, on a massage table for 30 mins and experience gentle hand holds with no physical manipulation.
- People generally ﬁnd this a very relaxing. It is a great opportunity to experience cranial work for free.
- Students enrolled in the two year practitioner training offer free sessions to practice clients as part of their training requirement. These sessions are supervised by qualified tutors who review the notes.
