About 2/2: … The art of the therapist is to connect with the underlying forces of health and facilitate a process of natural reorganisation. These forces express as subtle motion of tissues and fluids that can be felt by sensitive hands. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connectedness of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged. 

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy:

William Garner Sutherland, a student of Andrew Still the founder of Osteopathy, is considered the pioneer of Cranial Osteopathy. The science and skills of this form of Osteopathy evolved over Sutherland’s lifetime (1873-1954) and with his students and eventually started to be taught to non-Osteopaths in the mid 1980s by John Upledger who created the term Craniosacral Therapy. This modality then developed separately to Cranial Osteopathy.

In the late 1980s, Franklyn Sills originated an approach to the work that included a fuller model of working with trauma processes, an orientation to deeper expressions of health, use of lighter intention and a recognition of the holistic nature of the human body.  Courses became longer as these aspects of the work were developed more fully and now biodynamic trainings are typical 45-50 days over two years.

There are a number of training organizations inspired by these teachings in Europe and North America and now the work is spreading to Australia, New Zealand and Asia.  In 2006 the International Affiliation of Biodynamic Trainings, IABT, was created to define standards in biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy trainings and the term Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) was coined to differentiate the approach from other forms of Craniosacral Therapy.

This approach’s paradigm is to become highly skilful at listening to the body’s inherent health mechanisms and the therapist typically looks for and encourages the forces of health to set the priorities of the session and to bring about natural adjustments from within the body’s own resources. It is hallmarked by a strong interest in the holism of the human experience where both the body’s anatomy and physiology are related to in real time with the subtle forces of life that act through the interface of the body’s fluids.  Subtle movements in the body’s fluid and tissue fields are being listened for and the natural movement towards stillness is seen as deeply resourceful.

The simplicity of this therapy is its beauty. The practitioner takes up a position of being neutral and allows the process of the treatment to unfold. The practitioner is interested in facilitating the body towards deep intrinsic reorganizations across the body’s tissues, its fluid matrix and its energetic and emotional layers, so that there is a holistic movement towards greater health. The therapy creates a safe space for traumatic experiences to emerge and resolve smoothly without being overwhelming or re-stimulating.
