Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
What Is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)?
Biodynamic Cranial Therapy (BCST) is a holistic therapy that uses gentle touch to resolve a variety of conditions and restore health. The emphasis in BCST is to work with the underlying forces that govern how we function, rather than just the effects or symptoms of these forces. Unresolved stressful or traumatic experiences may be retained in the body and so restrict our natural capacity to heal. BCST provides a non-invasive and effective way to resolve these patterns of conditioning and so allow normal function to return. BCST is a whole body, whole person approach that deeply acknowledges the interconnections between body, mind and spirit.
