Supporting resilience in the nervous system. A Biodynamic approach.
How to slow down your nervous system.
Our bodies are designed to be able to respond to danger and to return to a relaxed state in a fluid and appropriate manner. We can however loose this flexibility. When stress becomes chronic or when we experience an overwhelming event without the support to recover, our range of response can become limited which could manifest as chronic anxiety, depression, insomnia, anger management problems or PTSD. Learn how Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can help, its benefits and some exercises to re-establish balance.
Craniosacral Biodynamics and Yoga
Where do they meet? One thing in common between Craniosacral Biodynamics and Yoga is that it is a meditative practice. It is from a clear and quiet state of being that we approach the client. Healing happens in the stillness. Our basic understanding is that health resides within at all times and it is our work to help the person access this state of well-being. Craniosacral can be a nice complement to work with clients or a new one unto
The birth experience and how it affects adult life. A Biodynamic approach.
Mark Twain said, “the two most important days in you life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” Birth is a very strong experience on many levels, physical, emotional and even spiritual. BCST examines the birth experience from the baby’s point of view. What are the physical obstacles to be negotiated? Where is the joy, fear, pain, and love in this experience? Often, the feelings are so overwhelming that they do not get fully completed or integrated for the little one. Bones of the cranium may be impacted, belief systems anchored in the consciousness. The trained practitioner listens with her hands to the movement of the tissues and allows the body to tell its story. Birth patterns may emerge and are encouraged to resolve into health and alignment. This enhances ease of movement brings a new perspective on life.
Addressing TMJ issues with BCST.
What is the source of teeth grinding, facial pain, neck tension and upper neck pain?
BCST intakes a holistic approach to working with localized problems. No part of the body works in isolation and the body is not separate from our mental and emotional lives. The BCST practitioner listens to imbalance expressed in the context of the overall health of the person and helps the tissues to remember their natural state of balance.
A Biodynamic approach to trauma resolution.
Human beings, like all animals, have a natural ability to rebound from life threatening events. Unfortunately we do not always follow our instincts and complete the physiological process that resolves the event. These experiences become frozen in our bodies. Life events can awaken the trauma and produce symptoms such as re-experiencing the event physically or mentally, anxiety, sleep problems, or seeking relief with mood altering substances. The biodynamic approach looks to nature and our own instinctual intelligence for how to restore health and balance.
