Who Should Receive Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and What Can It Help With?
Craniosacral therapy is supportive for anyone suffering from muscular-skeletal pain, physical or mental trauma, pain or immobility from past injuries, back pain, and chemical imbalances that affect brain function. It also offers support for headaches, insomnia, concussions, arthritis, thyroid issues, joint pain, TMJ, prenatal/postpartum relief, anxiety, and recovery from surgery. It’s gentle and non-invasive as the practitioner applies only five grams of pressure (the weight of a coin). However, the sessions are relaxing and rebalance the nervous system making it great for stress and general maintenance.
*Some people enjoy this therapy simply because it's relaxing, making it ideal for stress relief. Plus, it gives them a biological "tune-up" for focus, strength, and energy.
The Missing Link
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy compliments most other forms of bodywork as well, making it the missing link in many people's road to recovery. If your body were a house, a chiropractor or osteopath would support the frame (skeletal structure), a massage therapist would support the insulation and drywall (muscles), and a craniosacral therapist would support the wiring (the nervous system). Stress and trauma both affect the function of the nervous system, which in turn affects one's organ and tissue function as the nervous system connects with everything. This allows the client to feel the way psycho/emotional processes physically in a non-invasive manner and clear the path for the central nervous system to function at its optimal level. That in turn adds potency to other therapies and treatments as well as additional craniosacral sessions. As many of us have experienced, stress slows down healing considerably.
