My work awakens forces of the body’s natural healing potential and is supported by scientific understanding of physiology and anatomy. These two paradigms are often at odds with each other. Namely, doctors don’t study and hence often don’t understand how health is achieved beyond the boundaries of the pharmacy and surgery. And conversely, natural health practitioners can be so far out into the ‘mystery’ that they ignore the advances of a clear understanding of how the body is put together. Of course, I do not work in the territory of doctors. Hence, I do not prescribe medication or diagnose disease - I do work to make your experience of health meaningful. Although this is often called complimentary medicine it is more apt to name it in parallel medicine. There is no ‘one’ way of treating pain and suffering or to help create health. However, the connection and trust in our body has somehow been left behind. The Surgeon general of the USA said recently that putting Happiness as a primary concern of the health system should be considered. I say yes.
Bodywork is the use of touch that transforms how we feel - simple. This can relieve chronic pain or deal with more complicated experiences like negative stress or birth trauma. Adults: I specialize in issues with the muscles, connective tissue and nervous system. The body is one field, thus muscle, bone and nerves function in relation to patterns of behavior, thought and spirit. Children and babies: birth trauma, behavioral challenges and other issues (i.s. (sleep, digestion, etc.)
Techniques of touch that are scientific and anatomically based. In addition, the treatment includes being present for the patient - listening and helping evolve difficult subjects in ones life.
Bodywork is a term from my education and diploma in California: techniques involved are: massage therapy, shiatsu, deep tissue, acupressure and chi net tsang as well as others. Mastering bodywork in the United States is eclectic and a dance between the best method for the patient.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy or BCST makes contact with and helps the whole body. Often I make contact with the head (cranial) and sacrum (sacral) but not exclusively. The head and pelvis are important doorways into helping the body as a whole. It can positively help the muscles, bones, organs, nerves and hence global states of health. Also, BCST focuses on organs and other points of contact (i.e. a sore shoulder).
In my approach oriented to the whole and guides a patient to resolve ongoing problems. Ideally, we are caring for our needs proactively rather than waiting for pain or disruption to push us to a therapeutist.
BSCT is the leading edge of evolution in Craniosacral Therapy. Craniosacral Biodynamics honors the origins of this work in osteopathic medicine, yet presents a unique specialty field with a deeper understanding or respect for the energy/fluid dynamics. BCST is intended to help the body/mind and spirit reconnect with inherent self-ordering principals - essentially encourage the body's ability for self-repair - be in balance.
