“Amanda is a healing presence who fosters the stillness I feel while on the table. This is a state not always easy for me to achieve on my own. I always feel warmth and reassuring support. During the craniosacral treatment, I often will have a dreamy experience of images and colors. This temporary respite from the world gives me personal insights and makes me feel more open and aware. When I leave the studio, I always feel refreshed and lighter emotionally. I am a more calm and accepting person throughout the day.”

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle and profound, non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed and the touch is generally light and still. Treatments are focused on supporting the health of the whole being, with focus on the autonomic nervous system. This system organizes the entire body’s communication network, by rapidly exchanging sense information over intravenous nerve pathways.
Areas of Focus:
BCST works through establishing balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Together these systems control 95% of your nerve and organ responses with ganglia located in and throughout the spinal column.
Once a parasympathetic state is reached, the body can begin to unwind itself, recognizing greater amounts of sensation, feeling, and emotion. Fluid transference is increased, tissue inflammation is reduced, and greater amounts of CSF can travel to the brain and lower sacrum. Outcomes include reduced stress and pain, deeper sleep, increased calm and ease, increased emotional clarity and greater mental focus. Full body balance can be achieved.
