Integrated Bodywork: Masage and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
This bodywork type blends massage touch therapy with biodynamic craniosacral therapy. The first half of your bodywork session is still and moving touch to help release tight tissues in the back, chest, head, face and arms. Sometimes the feet are included. The second half of the session is biodynamic craniosacral therapy, a very light touch that engages the deeper rhythms of the body. For the newcomer to biodynamic craniosacral therapy, it feels like assisted meditation. The client often slips into a state that feels like sleep but you are awake. It feels timeless and nurturing. Craniosacral therapy was developed from osteopathy. The body has rhythms that are separate from heart rate and breathing that are connected to cerebral spinal fluid flow in the body. Osteopaths discovered several layers of these rhythms they call tides, each at a slower rate than the previous layer: cranial rhythm impulse, mid-tide and long tide. This form of therapy is excellent for meeting each layer, and by the end of your session, you will be in a slower rhythm where your own inner health can come forward and help restore your body to homeostasis. This form of integrated bodywork is excellent for the stressed person wanting to feel refreshed.
