What is Biodynamic Cranial Sacral therapy and how does it work:

Biodynamic Cranial Sacral therapy is a whole being therapy.

BCST practitioners support healing at its core level. They work within an awareness that the energetic, fluid, and tissue systems are a deeply interlaced web. By understanding and addressing this web directly, BCST practitioners meet their clients as a whole being. It is based on the teachings of founder and osteopath Dr. W. G. Sutherland.


Because of its focus on wholeness, BCST promotes resolution and integration of the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of the client’s dis-ease. What sets this work apart from other craniosacral practices, and is the foundation for all biodynamic training philosophy, is focus on the Inherent Treatment Plan – a healing process that organically unfolds from within the client’s system – rather than a plan or protocol that comes from the practitioner.

As practitioners, we yield to and support the human system’s innate capacity to heal itself. By taking cues from the client’s system on how the session is unfolding, we follow the direction and pacing of inherent healing forces as they emerge in each session. When given the optimal container of safety, relational warmth, present moment attention, and spaciousness, there is a natural unfolding and return to health and balance.  (With thanks for this explanation to By Robyn Michele Jones, MA, CMT, RCST®)
