Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapists believe that health is never lost no matter what the ailment. We use our ability and training to identify the parts of the nervous system that are not functioning optimally and our awareness of the “always available health” in the body to assist the system in bringing itself back into balance.
Cranial is a mind and body practice, rooted soundly in science and spirit, offering a beautiful space of deep healing, rest and restoration. Cranial sessions are a space of awareness, stillness and safety. In this space the body can unwind; processing and releasing it’s history. The noise that blocks or obscures the experience of the ever-present health can lift. On a physiological level, our body gets a chance to realign, and the nervous system is supported into more equilibrium and balance. Health comes to the foreground. We are listened to, appreciated and witnessed very deeply.
Cranial is a healing art and discipline centred in mindfulness, presence, gentleness and acceptance. It creates time and space to honour the creative life process and intelligence in everything. In this model, both health and symptoms are part and parcel of the same on-going creative evolution of dynamic health, stillness and creative possibilities of a system exploring the life process.
Cranial sacral therapy is used to address a broad range of experiences such as: Migraines, Neck and back pain, Healing post surgery, PTSD , Injuries, Addiction recovery , Stress, Digestive Issues, Sinus congestion, Birth issues, Sprains and many other symptoms.
What to Expect
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a light touch therapy. It does not require for the removal of any layers of clothing. The session takes place on a comfortable massage table.
When working with children and infants, the BCST session will be most effective when it supports the family field, so it is helpful if family members are present. There can also be a certain degree of integration and continuity which can be facilitated cost effectively through teaching caregivers basic techniques for on-going use at home.
Working with others with BCST is a beautiful and rewarding experience. Experiencing someone settle into deeper experiences of health is very moving. It is wonderful to constantly see the beauty, intelligence and creativity of life. The cranial space is like plugging in to the bigger energy source that powers my being. It has helped me so hugely in my life and I am so happy to share it with others.
“Your perception, sensitivity, and skilful care comes as much from the heart as from very real intelligence and training. This makes for great understanding of your clients and their conditions. Apart from a real benefit felt after a BCST treatment by you- a feeling of somewhat greater harmony and balance – there is a feeling of social wellbeing too. I find these sessions and my work with you very special”.

“Elise was a delight to work with, and she created a professional and relaxing environment to do her healing work with our employees. We received glowing reviews from the employees who saw her and have already had requests to host another cranial sacral day with Elise. Via would be thrilled to invite her back in the future, and we would be thrilled to recommend her services to other organisations.”
