The Breath of Life
Craniosacral Biodynamics has its roots in the osteopathic tradition of medicine. It is gentle and suitable for people of all ages. It is often appropriate when other therapies may be unsafe such as during pregnancy or after an operation, accident, fall or injury. However, you don’t have to be ill or have any particular symptoms to benefit.
The craniosacral system is comprised of cranial nerves and bones, the spinal chord and sacrum and the fluctuating “stream” of cerebrospinal fluid that ebbs and flows inside it like the ocean tide, protecting and nourishing the brain and nervous system. The “Breath of Life," also called Prana, Chi and "Life Force" is our bodies underlying revitalizing phenomena contained within the cerebrospinal fluid deeply influencing our health and well being, The "Breath of Life" is a vital link between our physical and spiritual self.
This extremely subtle yet potent specialized treatment is done fully clothed on the treatment table. It is a gentle “hands-on” therapy that encourages balance in the nervous system. Chronic and repetitive stress can be accumulative, often undermining our lives as we become overwhelmed and our health and vitality begin to break down. During craniosacral therapy the toxic effects of stress and “over-stimulation” are gently released from our system, thereby raising our vitality and encouraging our body’s inherent self-healing abilities.
By resonating “stillness” and by using light touch to reflect back to your system the pattern it is holding, the therapist provides an opportunity for the body to let go of restrictive patterns and return to an easier mode of functioning.
This work is very soothing and relaxing in nature and occurs on a deep unconscious level. The effects of a session can often be felt right away, although sometimes they are not fully apparent until hours or even days later.
Sessions are approximately sixty minutes in length.
Be Still & Know "I AM"
The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.
It is the same life that shouts in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass and breaks into
tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean cradle of birth and death,
in ebb and in flow.
I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of
this world of life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
