What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?

There is an intelligence your body-mind uses to heal itself. This intelligence is linked to the "Breath of Life," a name given to it by Dr. William Garner Sutherland, who studied it for over 40 years.

Through his research, Dr. Sutherland found that this force expresses itself through subtle rhythmic motions in the body, and that these motions are essential to your:

• Physical health
• Mental clarity
• Emotional well-being

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gently effective, clothed bodywork modality. “Biodynamic” refers to the healing life movement and energy that is within each one of us. This energetic therapy translates directly into the physiology by working with your body's inherent healing capacities. Clients report a gentle, natural release of stress and trauma, resolution of chronic issues, promotion of injury recovery, and an overall sense of well-being.


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a gentle and subtle whole-body approach to the human experience.  Craniosacral Therapists learn to sense where your body is relaxed and flowing with these rhythms. They also can detect areas that may be frozen, locked or tight from stress and trauma, and help you receive support for your health and self-repair.

Physically: BCST influences the central nervous system, brain and spinal column, as well as the fluid it bathes in. This fluid is called the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). From our skeletal system and the bones of the cranium to the ebbing and flowing of our endocrine system, this cranial modality is effective, yet gentle.

Emotionally: Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can affect very deep and primary patterns, while providing the client with the resources and space to explore their emotional landscape. BCST provides a deep sense of resourcing within the client. This resourcing provides a safe container for emotional issues to resolve.

Spiritually: BCST can open doors to both our heart and soul, profoundly changing our lives.


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing, and the inter-connections of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged. It is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of illnesses, helping to create the optimal conditions for health, encouraging vitality and facilitating a sense of well-being. It is suitable for people of all ages, including babies, children and the elderly, and can be effective in acute or chronic cases.

Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy can help your nervous system re-set itself so you can experience greater rest, peace and wholeness.

Instead of constantly running in "fight or flight" mode, you can slow down and relax in a way that supports self-repair and rejuvenation functions such as sleep and digestion.

This is particularly helpful to:

• Release trauma.
• Recover from the daily stresses of living in our fast-paced world.

As your nervous system functions better, you may feel more at ease in every aspect of your life, work, body and relationships.
