Biodynamic Therapies & Reiki
“To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.”
A.T. Still, Father of Osteopathy
Biodynamic Massage Therapy
Biodynamic Massage begins by forming a harmonious interface between practitioner, client and the supportive facilities present to cultivate & facilitate health. Working from a Biodynamic approach as taught by Todd Jackson, better known modalities such as Swedish and Deep Tissue massage are combined with craniosacral therapy to form a relationship that allows for greater health to emerge.
Instead of following a rigid protocol to formulate the session, Biodynamic Massage asks that the therapist listen deeply to the guidance being presented from the health alive in the client and to allow the massage to be moved by that guiding force. The practitioner is continuously listening to the cues of the body, such as feeling into and being with the health around and within densities (knots) that have formed in the tissues which have caused tension lines throughout the facial system and other aspects of the whole bodily system resulting in potential strains on the organs and glands & other components of the whole. The practitioner is moved in support of resolving these tensions by modulating pressure, depth, momentum of movement, support of limbs, etc. in accordance with and in response to the interface maintained with the health presenting. The progression of each session is unique because it is formulated in presence and is structured around the individuals specific needs in the moment.
Biodynamic massage addresses physical tensions and pains, both chronic and acute. Receiving this work on a regular basis aides in the on-going practice of caring for oneself in health of body and mind. Receiving such nurturing support for the health of one's physicality naturally honors the inclusion of the whole.
The experience of being listened to deeply during a Biodynamic Massage session provides a safe and nurturing environment which offers opportunity for tensions to melt away and deep relaxation and inner-peace to be cultivated.
Note: Reiki can also be intentionally included in the Biodynamic massage sessions upon request.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCT) is a subtle non-invasive healing art that touches the many layers of ones being and encourages the life force resources to promote a process of change toward greater health.
There are many branches of craniosacral therapy. Some utilize a systematic or mechanical approach while others, such as Biodynamic Cranial, embrace an all inclusive approach that invites the innate healing agent to guide the session.
The Biodynamic Cranial therapist is able to utilize their refined felt sense to perceive the areas of gathered stillness and forms a relationship with that most still & quiet place. Giving attention to this well-spring of health, the practitioner holds this place without motive but instead with unconditional loving kindness.
Rather then focusing on symptoms or disease, Biodynamic Cranial focuses instead on the healing resources available to enliven life.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can be utilized to aide in support of a variety of issues; musculo-skeletal, neurological, organ, glandular, spiritual and emotional.
"...This method emphasizes the cultivation of Presence during treatment. Presence unifies the practitioner with the natural world. Presence helps the client access healing resources. Presence operates unlimited by the boundaries of technique, knowledge and anatomy. When the practitioner finds the right relationship to the present moment, Presence does what is needed, without any effort on the part of the practitioner...We, the client, and everything else function in the foreground of Presence. Increasing our Presence during treatments means taking what we consider our own motives and individuality and allowing them to dissolve into the ever present background of Presence." Todd Jackson
