About Craniosacral Therapy (Cranio) and the biodynamic approach in Craniosacral Therapy
What makes the biodynamic approach in craniosacral therapy special
Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle physical body-oriented treatment. It is based on working with the craniosacral rhythm. This rhythm can be felt in the fine pulsating of the cerebrospinal fluid. It can also be felt in the movement of the cranial bones as well as in a very subtle movement that one can learn to sense in every part of the body.
The biodynamic craniosacral therapy or biodynamic approach in craniosacral therapy or called biodynamics (bios means life in ancient Greek, dynamics means power or strength in ancient Greek) connects with the formative forces. With great mindfulness and presence I connect with those forces that sustain and carry us.
In cranisacral therapy we refer to a rhythm that call ‘breath of life’
The craniosacral fluid nourishes, moves and protects the nervous system from the head (or cranium) up to the sacrum. The rhythm inherent within this fluid is often referred to as the ‘breath of life’, and is akin to the rhythms of the breath and the heartbeat.
Treatment consists of gentle physical contact guided by an empathic listening on a body-based level. Receiving this kind of a treatment can cause the following results: Body parts can respond with beneficial compensatory movements, tissue can pulsate and hardened parts of bodily tissue can come into awareness and start to melt. Through being treated in this way, the body learns to remember it’s innate original health. These initiated body-inherent responses can be deep and lasting.
For the last 10 years I have been studying biodynamics and working more and more with the biodynamic approach in craniosacral therapy.
The real explanation of craniosacral therapy takes place on the treatment couch
Craniosacral body work can only be verbally explained up to a certain point. The real explanation takes place on the treatment couch through experiencing the results for yourself.
