IS BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
(BDCT) is a
sophisticated, subtle form of bodywork that enlivens
your deepest healing resources.
Unlike other physical or energy therapies,
healing in BDCT comes not from the practitioner, but
from within the client. Healing of your body/mind is
generated by your Life Force.
Within the body, the life force expresses itself
as subtle rhythmic motion oriented around a core of
her hands, the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist is able
to sense this motion.
Rather than focusing on disease or symptoms, the
practitioner stays centered in stillness and
synchronizes with the deep, slow rhythm of the
regenerative health in the life force.

it organizes around stillness, allows the client to
resonate with it in their own brain and body.
The client can then re-establish their
relationship to, and expression of, their own healing

The client’s own healing forces can then create
the resolution most appropriate for that individual.
BDCT awakens a person’s own capacity for
HOW IS BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY DIFFERENT FROM
OTHER TYPES OF CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY?
Other types of Craniosacral therapy are commonly
referred to as simply “CranioSacral Therapy.”
It is a more mechanical approach, with the
practitioner using their hands to assess and correct
imbalances or restrictions between the bones of the
head, the sacrum (lower end of the spine) and the fluid
around the brain and spinal cord.
In the Biodynamic approach to Craniosacral
Therapy, the practitioner facilitates the client’s own
internal healing process instead of fixing the client.
The practitioner focuses on the whole,
rather than portions of the system, and on the health
within, rather than disease.
Clients report feeling change initiated from
inside themselves rather than from the practitioner’s
