WHAT IS BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on healing modality that harmonizes the living system by bringing it back to its optimal state.
Through compassion, humility, and presence, the therapist invites resonance with something much deeper than our pain and suffering; the health within, which is never lost! This inherent health helps the client gently process pain and trauma in present time.
Balance is restored to the system and its expression is more grounded and stable. The client re-orients to wellness and has resources to deeply process; to move gracefully and with more ease and purpose in life. The river of life pushes trauma away when it is stronger - together we bring the inherent health back to strengthen that current.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Craniosacral Therapy can have restorative and healing effects to people of all ages and backgrounds.
It can be beneficial to mothers and newborns that have had a traumatizing birth experience, and adults who had a difficult birth and want to process it presently, in a safe holding relationship.
It deals quite efficiently with pre-verbal trauma and trauma that a person cannot speak of or prefer not to speak of. It can sometimes be too scary to talk about difficult things and craniosacral can help process challenges in our past, through the body and nervous system, without the need of revisiting them.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy paces the individual through a very gentle healing process. The practitioner starts the session with a few questions in order to understand the concerns, client's conditions and goals. Together they discover how trauma manifests within the body and how it is held through our inherent health, within a safe relational field.
The practitioner follows the natural rhythm of the living form, usually by lightly touching the feet and a deeper state of healing arises. The body will then guide the practitioner and make decisions on where healing will take place. Different parts of the body are held, with a light and still touch. Usually, the sacrum and cranium are held as this is where the natural rhythm expresses, mostly through the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid.
Healing occurs in the deepest of levels, the client is calm and relaxed and is asked to notice what is happening throughout the process. The nervous system releases and the body enters a state of health and deeper relationship with the natural rhythms of life. We finish the session with an integrative, even more calming hold.
Basia, MA, RCST, BCST, has been practicing Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy since 2013. After becoming a registered practitioner in New York, she continued her studies with the Craniosacral Biodynamics pioneer, Franklyn Sills. This allowed her to deepen the quality of her presence and work. She has done many postgraduate classes and continues to do so. These involve working with particular parts of the body to deepen in the work even more, and also more specific workshops like Shock and Trauma Resolution; Pre and Perinatal Education for babies and new mothers, Microbiome, Long Covid. Basia's continuous curiosity and love for learning allow her to hold different types of stresses in the body and invite a sense of spaciousness and wholeness, in all life stages. Some of her teachers include Franklyn Sills, Katherine Ukleja, Sarah Nesling, Anne Stevens, Cherionna Menzam-Sills, Viola Sampson, Roger Gilchrist, Scott Zamurut.
Basia also holds a Master's Degree in Core Process Psychotherapy, a Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy. Mindfulness brings presence in our lives and bodies and thus helps us know and overcome our deepest trauma. CPP invites us to let go of long-held emotional patterns and move from a place of freedom.
Basia is registered with UKCP as a senior trainee psychotherapist.
