Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a gentle, non-invasive approach to wellbeing for everyone from newborns to the elderly. 

It’s a light touch therapy, with roots in osteopathy. It combines a western scientific understanding of the body with an eastern approach to mindfulness skills and an appreciation of the body’s natural ability to self heal. It works with the body’s innate intelligence to return to health. In simpler terms, the body knows how to heal itself.

When survival mode becomes our norm, busyness and stress can feel strangely comforting. Stillness might feel strange or even daunting. If you find it hard to sit in silence or simply be, know there’s a reason. When we’re stuck in fight, flight, or freeze mode, we crave stimulation as a shield. Our bodies remain on high alert, ready to defend against perceived threats.

But this is where cranial sacral therapy can assist you. It’s a gradual journey guiding your nervous system back to rest and recovery. It’s about shedding those protective layers, allowing a deeper embrace of presence, peace, and the beauty of simply being.

By having a therapist hold a therapeutic space for you or your loved one, they can listen to the body’s inherent health expressions; allowing the your nervous system to feel seen and heard, thus bringing your nervous system back into balance (homeostasis), where then a deeper state of healing can happen. As a therapist holds this sacred, safe space, it allows your body to process stored traumas and suppressed emotions.

Anyone can benefit from BCST including newborns and it is safe during and after pregnancy. 

For infants and parents, BCST is particularly helpful with:

  • Breastfeeding issues
  • Birth trauma
  • Colic
  • Pain
  • Digestive health
  • Bonding between parents and baby
  • Pregnancy aches and pains
  • Postpartum anxiety and depression

For adults, BCST can support:

  • Nervous system imbalances present in anxiety & depression
  • Headaches & concussion
  • TMJ / jaw tension, clamping, grinding
  • Fatigue
  • Stress and tension
  • Physical injury
  • digestive issues
  • Chronic pain
  • Trauma
  • And more

Many patients say when they get off the table…
I feel expansive, there is more space, I feel lighter. Your physical body may feel more relaxed, energised and a reduction or resolution in physical aches and pain. Your mind may feel quieter, sharper or clearer. You may have a new understanding of a challenging situation.

For babies and toddlers post session you may notice  

  • Calmness and overall happiness within 
  • Less emotional outbursts
  • A reduction in crying or complete resolution 
  • Better sleep quality 
  • Better digestion and easier toileting 
  • Better feeding habits
  • Ease of movements in areas where there was notable tension and restriction 
  • Ability to better express their emotions (those who talk)

The shifts that arise due to BCST can be life changing for many. It may require just a few sessions for a newborn or infant. In adults however, this is not a one session fix. We really can’t expect to heal years of experiences and trauma in one session… it really is a process and requires a some level of commitment. 

So If you or any of your family members are in need of a nervous system reset, or a way to relieve physical and emotional tension, please consider reaching out to Heal Hub and Lauren will be happy to assist you on your healing journey
