Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a gentle and profound hands-on body therapy founded in osteopathy.
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.
