craniosacral biodynamic


This work is in its essence perceptual, relational, and non-intentional. Rather than aligning it with "body" work as such we need to understand that we participate in different material and immaterial bodies. To access and invite alignment of these bodies is a basic orientation of this relational approach that requires at any moment connection to stillness, oneness, and wholeness.


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy builds on osteopathy in the cranial field and moves beyond the idea of intervening into the structure of the body to intentional manipulate change. It is based on the experience that health comes from outside the somatic system. This health can be accessed and enhanced by an attuned explorative and gentle relationship between facilitator, client, and the perceptual capacity to connect to primary respiration. 


Biodynamic Craniosacral work unites different streams of knowledge. It draws on its founding osteopathic originators, including Andrew Taylor Still, William Garner Sutherland, and currently James S. Jealous. This work integrates an understanding of dynamic embryology, findings of interpersonal neurobiology, bonding and attachment theory, developmental psychology, and interrelational traumahealing.
