Community Craniosacral Therapy is here!
Receive free, half-hour sessions from a student of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy on the first Tuesday of every month at Inland Island, starting September 6th. Book your appointment today by visiting www.georgiawebber.com/book-an-appointment.
Our resident Craniosacral Therapist, Georgia Webber, is delighted to offer one day per month of free Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Sessions as part of her ongoing training requirements, and an offering to the community. Not sure what the difference is between regular Craniosacral Therapy and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy? Read on to find out! And don’t be shy to email Georgia with any questions.
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle form of touch therapy that prioritizes supporting and enhancing resources in the body, at the body’s own pace. CST works with the rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the resulting subtle motions of the cranial bones, fascia, soft tissues in the body. The central nervous system (that the CSF flows through) endures all of the body stresses. When this system is stressed, tensions build and create restrictions that affect every part of the body. Through increased sensitivity in the hands, the practitioner locates restriction, tension, and stillness in the rhythm, and then provides light pressure or movement - only as much as the body invites, without resistance - to restore the full range and ease of motion to the restricted areas.
What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a branch of CST that uses even more enhanced perceptual skills in the practitioner to feel the fluid movements in the body as a whole, at the cellular level, in deep relationship to what is called the Breath of Life. The Breath of Life is essentially the life force in the body, the energetic map that underlies one‘s basic health and symptomology. This understanding of the body comes from embryology, studying the developmental drives and physical stages that each of us goes through from the moment of conception.
BCST is trauma-informed, and thus incredibly powerful in bodies where trauma has been "frozen" in place, often preventing more prescriptive therapies from fulfilling their potential to heal. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed and the touch is generally light and still. The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, using the relationship of the practitioner's presence and embodiment to create a safe environment for the client's healing process to unfold.
What are these Community Days about?
To learn the enhanced perceptual skills that BCST requires, Georgia needs to fulfill a certain number of practice hours experimenting with feeling perceptions of fluid in the body, the bones and their qualities of movement, orientation to health, certain holds, etc. - and that requires willing participants! Though it is not the aim of the practice session to address your specific issues, healing processes may emerge and express themselves, and you may wish to come back for a regular CST treatment on another day. The work is very gentle, however, and it is more likely that you will experience relaxation and calm while learning about this method of communicating with the body.
If you’re interested in supporting both your health and Georgia’s learning process at the same time, go to www.georgiawebber.com/book-an-appointment and book your free BCST session today!
