During the first months of our embryonic development, breathing is a rhythmic, tidal phenomena happening everywhere at once. This environment is where health first claims our cellular being as its playground and there we still find it. Health is constant and exuberant and as we come into an embrace-full relationship with it, with more ease it may express itself in all and any circumstances.
WHAT IS BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL
BCST is a gentle and restorative form of bodywork that utilises light touch and refined listening to the health in the body and how it expresses itself. In this work, releases and shifts are initiated from within the body, rather than mechanical interventions by the practitioner.
The body has a natural intelligence that is subtle and constantly striving for greater balance and wholeness. Through the practitioner's quietly listening touch and presence rooted in compassion, we are in relationship with this intelligence and the healing intentions expressed by it. What remains unprocessed in the body-system, may it be tissue damage, chronic pain or emotional blockage, may be processed in an environment of safety.
A deepening into nuanced embodied presence is constantly encouraged by connecting to the felt sense of the moment. This allows an intimate witnessing who we are, where we are at and how we unfold. New pathways to a greater sense of resource and resilience open and take root in our nervous systems.
WHAT CAN BCST DO FOR YOU?
BCST treats at the level of the very roots of your symptoms held in the tissue-fluid body and the nervous system. It helps the connective pathways of the body work and communicate better, which affects not only the physiology, but the mental and emotional aspects of you holistically.
A BCST treatment activates and brings you in relationship with the natural healing resources within, promoting greater vitality, ease and sense of wholeness throughout the entire you. It is a great tool for anyone wishing to pause and reset amidst the bustle of everyday life and connect deeper with one's feelings and sensations.
Whenever overwhelming past experiences held in the nervous system emerge during a session, they are met in a contained way and always in relationship to resources and safety. This allows a present-moment reframing of old stories into experiences of agency.
Embodied awareness explored in treatments promotes the capacity to stay with difficult sensations, without needing to run away or reject them. We cultivate the capacity to stay present and live our lives more fully, as ourselves.
* Please note: BCST is health-supportive and does not equal nor substitute a medical treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
In the initial treatment we will discuss your particular case history and what brings you to the practice. This is followed by a hands-on session during which you will lie on a massage table fully clothed. I will guide you into contact with embodied resources and help you contact your felt sense in the present moment. The body and the stories it contains are listened to as a fluid whole, constantly showing the pathway the treatment needs to take.
One session is 60 minutes long.
The standard rate of a 60-minute treatment is 70 euros. A sliding scale of 50-60 euros is available for individuals with less expendable income. Please email me for further information.
If you are not able to make it to your treatment, please let me know as soon as possible so I can offer the time for someone else. Please note that if you cancel your appointment less than 24hrs in advance, you will need to pay the full price of the session.
At its very foundation, what BCST offers is a space where people can, in all their complexities, be met by another and by themselves. This allows us to become more resourced to greet what is actually happening in our lives with the quality of integrity, regardless of whether we think it should or should not be happening. We all need to be seen, acknowledged and met as who we are. It is essential in order for the imagination of life to blossom in us, deeper and once again.
