What is biodynamic craniosacral therapy?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a light-touch body work modality that releases tension. It’s gentle and non-invasive. It aids in pain relief and encourages the nervous system, organs and musculoskeletal system to come into balance and heal.
It’s deeply relaxing and supports the body’s natural healing processes on all levels: physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically.
The biodynamic part (which differentiates this work from biomechanical) means that the body – and the systems in the body – sets the pace at which resolutions occur, not the practitioner. Inter-connectedness of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged.
How often will I need to see you?
The short answer is, it’s different for everyone, but I see great results within 3-10 sessions. That’s intentionally wide open because there are many variables. Two key factors that impact someone’s healing journey are:
How long ago was the injury or illness?
If something is acute – a recent experience that’s causing pain or discomfort – then once or twice might be all you all need. The longer a holding pattern is in the body, the longer it can sometimes take to let it go and return to a sense of balance and wellbeing.
How local or global?
Sometimes a local experience in the body (an experience that impacts one specific area like a sprain or a surgical incision) may take less time to respond than something more global that can impact the whole body (like anxiety or ongoing fatigue.)
My goal is always to support my clients to feel as good as possible in their bodies. This is the reason I custom design each package I offer specifically to each individual client. I support my clients throughout their healing journey, not just when they are on the table. I support them with body work, body awareness exercises and guided visualizations. I offer tips and strategies on how to relax and reconnect, so that my clients are even supported in between our sessions together.
What’s the parking like on Oak Bay Avenue?
Our end of the Avenue is growing and there’s always a vibrant bustle happening. If you are driving to a session, there is a parkade right next door, or there is some street parking on Oak Bay Ave. You can also find some shady parking on Fell and Bank Streets. (Make sure you are in 90min or 2hr spaces and not residential.)
We are on the #2 and #8 bus routes, if you decide to ditch the car and take public transit.
