Biodynamic Craniosacral Balancing Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive experience for the whole body, performed on a massage table where the client is fully clothed. CST practitioners are a highly skilled in a deep listening to the body’s inherent health. The therapy creates a safe space for traumatic experiences to emerge and resolve smoothly without being overwhelming or re-stimulating.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapists are trained on how to use acute perception skills to discern subtle physiological changes.  We use our ability 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. This supports greater ease and helps the body decrease symptoms. CST can dramatically increase wellness, addressing physical pain, acute and chronic disease, PTSD and other emotional stress. Many clients chose multiple sessions over 3 or 6 months to correct and then maintain health. Rosemary received her training in Craniosacral Balancing Therapy at Integrative Healing and Bodywork, Inc.

The beauty of this therapy is its simplicity. Working with the subtle movements in the body’s fluid and tissue fields, a CST practitioner is being listened for and the natural movement towards stillness is seen as deeply healing. The approach to the work includes a developed model of working with trauma processes. The therapists deep presence and touch are the key components in creating a Relational Field that generates a deep sense of safety and capacity to heal from within. The therapy is gaining a lot of recognition and popularity because of its profound therapeutic effects expecially when experienced over multiple sessions.

A biodynamic craniosacral session can embody some deep spiritual truths and is centered on the principle that the physical/ emotional/ spiritual /energetic system of the body is actually one whole system.  So touching one part of the body, we touch the whole. The practitioner senses the body’s deep rhythms to help bring our system into alignment.

Rose Healing clients report noticing a deep sense of relaxation as one of their first sensations during a session. As restrictions are released, sometimes memories of trauma and injury can arise.  These memories are often stored in the connective tissue of the body.  Working together, the practitioner and client allow expression of these memories and feelings, often reducing or eliminating dysfunction in the area involved. This process is called somatic-emotional release. Somatic Emotional Release (SER) is helpful with a great may issues including: anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD, mood swings, nervousness, unexpressed or unhealed grief. 

Where there is a group of therapists working together, the process can be greatly enhanced. Rosemary often co-treats clients with many renowned psychotherapists in the Hudson Valley including those at the Lighthouse Retreat and Wellness Center.
