Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a wonderfully relaxing approach to healing through touch. The therapist directly supports their clients’ ability to self-repair and find a natural balance by following the unwinding of the tissues. This therapy is suited for all ages and a wide range of acute to chronic conditions. Regular sessions support good maintenance of health.

How is BCST performed?

BCST is performed on a fully clothed body. We ask that you wear comfortable pants (with no belt) and a warm shirt. Craniosacral sessions involves the practitioner placing their hands on the patient, which allows them to “tune into the craniosacral rhythm”. The practitioner then uses delicate manual techniques to release restrictions and relieve undue pressure on the brain and spinal cord. When the central nervous system is free of restrictions, the body is more able to return to its highest levels of health.

Osteopathy is covered by many extended insurance plans. It is a gentle, body alignment therapy, that utilizes techniques such as:
-myofascial (connective tissue) release
-Craniosacral therapy (manipulation of the vertebrae and bones of the skull and the membranes that surround the brain and spinal chord)
-visceral manipulation (releasing and aligning organs)
-bone and muscle manipulation and aligning

The goal of Osteopathy is to help the body help itself to become a better functioning unit. There is always a total body improvement approach as apposed to just segregating the areas presenting symptoms.

Clients are treated wearing shorts or thin stretchy cloathing. First appointments include an extensive history and assessment as well as initial treatment. Follow up sessions are 45mins and always include current reassessment and continued treatment based on current assessments of how the client is responding and what the body is most in need of.

Treatment can be helpful for most body ailments including:

-back pain
-neck pain
-joint problems
-Digestive or respiratory conditions
-nerve pain or disorders
-anxiety depression
