Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful touch therapy engaging with the whole person and facilitating change in body, mind, emotion and spirit. A safe holding space is created between therapist and client allowing for the deepest sense of being heard and met.
"comforting, inner peace, a sense of relief, deep stillness and relaxation, connection, acceptance, feeling fully alive, feeling whole again "
Both acute and chronic conditions can respond well with BCST....headaches, tinnitus, vertigo, muscular skeletal pain, anxiety, trauma, sleep issues, persistent grief, support with autism and mental health issues, relational difficulties, spiritual crisis - to name a few. Some simply come for support in meeting life's challenges and to nourish a healthy equilibrium.
This is a fully clothed therapy and suitable for all ages.
Anxiety is so common it can come to feel normal.
You can never deeply settle, sleep isn't so refreshing, thoughts are persistent and scattered and life feels like surviving rather then thriving. Does this sound familiar ?
Maybe you're haunted by memories, or you find yourself over-reacting to non thretening situations.Or you are plagued by irritability, depressiveness, social withdrawal,or anxiety.Trauma can cause mistrust, tension and difficult communication in our relationships.
It is now recognised that many of us live with unresolved traumas. Trauma which is essentially overwhelm can be caused by a single dramatic event, or during our early years in utero or at birth, including attachment and relational trauma as well as build up over time from a series of challenges.
The good news is - we are pretty resiliant and adaptable. But, just like we take care of our teeth by brushing and visiting a dentist our nervous systems need to be cared for, so we can process and transform whats being held in the body.
And some more good news is that Biodyanamic Craniosacral Therapy combined with Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing techniques can be very effective in down regulating our nervous systems to a more neutral and resiliant place. Because traumatic effect gets patterned into our body and neurological system, the most effective approaches combine talking therapy with the somatic body based approaches of Somatic Experiencing, Breath work, movemnet/gesture work and BCST.
The possibilities in someone with a well regulated nervous system are great. For someone who lives life feeling numb, or ready to run or fight at the slightest stimulus, the possibilities are far fewer.
So why not take care of your nervous system and enjoy a more harmonious life with more energy and focus and greater capacity for creativity, healing and connection with yourself and others.
Its great to bring your baby for cranioscacral therapy soon after the birth and then at any time during the first year. The parents will be invited to be part of the session and as the baby responds to treatment, this shared experience can deepen the bonds within the new family.
Craniosacral Therapy is beneficial even if the pregnancy and birth were trouble free. It supports breastfeeding • developing good sleep patterns • early infant feeding problems including colic, reflux and allergies • torticollis (wry neck) • bonding with parents and siblings , processing a challenging birth for baby and parents. Young babies are cuddled and fed during treatment and older babies might play with their parents and the therapist.
Children of all ages come to me, accompanied by a parent, for issues that include physical , emotional and mental aspects .
I love engaging with little ones and will happiy work creatively with toys and drawings on the floor. We are more likely to find ourselves under the couch in a den rather then on it. There is no expectation that baby or young person need be still to receive this therapy.
If your horse has physical, behavioural, emotional or relational issues, Craniosacral Therapy can help. This is an approach that deeply respects the spirit of a horse. A light, spacious touch works directly with the horse’s central nervous system, helping them release stress and tension. A horse that shifts out of a fearful relationship with the world is able to access greater suppleness, energy, and capacity to learn and relate. Horses seem to love Cranio. It speaks their language !
Issues such as head shaking, lameness,hindquarter injuries, head trauma, jaw issues, colic, effects of early weaning or relocation can all be eased with this approach.
Lisa works with your horse in the stable or field. She can also offer sessions for the rider/trainer and horse together to support the development of a relationship based in trust and understanding.
