Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a gentle, healing practice that incorporates light or still touch to transition clients from fight or flight to relaxation mode where it’s possible for healing to occur. This therapy supports the health of the client’s whole being, especially the nervous system. By receiving BCST, clients begin to tune into the health of their own bodies, rather than focusing on symptoms and pain, and report feeling settled and calm or energized after a treatment. By resetting body rhythms through BCST, clients might find relief from migraines, insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, and pain.

 

 

What to expect during your first session:

  • Fill out a health history form (if not done at booking).

  • Have a brief discussion about present issues or injuries that are causing pain.

  • Clients can expect to lie fully-clothed on a massage table.. Most of the time you will start face down with your face in the cradle.

  • During the treatment you can talk or be quiet. Feel free to ask questions, but give yourself the permission to let the hour be your time to relax in your body.

  • Speak up if there is too much or not enough pressure.

  • The session will last for 60-90 minutes.

  • When you’re alone in the room again, take your time getting off the table. Sometimes people can feel a little disoriented or lightheaded.

  • Open the door when you are dressed and ready.

  • Have a short discussion about self-care and how to stay present with where your body is in space throughout your daily life.

  • Be curious and ask questions!

  • Settle up payment and make future appointments.
