How Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can help?

Here you can get amazing therapy at our clinic which you have never experienced before!
Have it try this wonderful therapy- Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy-Miwa is qualified practitioner, Book with her today!

The Benefits of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
The Craniosacral System has been in place since a early stage of our evolution.
In comprises the bones of the skull(cranium and mandible), the spinal column, and sacrum bone, plus membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, along with the related connective tissue. Its function is to help maintain a healthy environment for the central nervous system to function efficiently, thus influencing a variety of body functions.

Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy(BCST) has its roots in Osteopathy and was developed into a unique treatment by Dr John Upledger an osteopath in the 1970's.It's an gentle non-invasive, hands-on treatment, which works with the body natural rhythm, and helps to activate healing and balancing mechanisms.
When you are feeling safe, loved and relaxed you may be more able to communicate your areas of tensions. When these tensions are released and balanced, you are more likely to wholly relaxed into life. A sensitive, compassionate therapist will find those area in need of adjustment and provide an opportunity for balance to occur.

Gentle hands-on techniques facilitate the unwinding of area of compression and misalignment, encouraging the release of stress and associated emotions.
You can then start to soften and relax. With pressure and tension gone, necessary space in the brain and body can return, room is freed for natural growth and functioning, and your health and wellbeing can be much improved.
It's also possible that Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy could help to release residual tension around the stomach and colon that have been causing a degree f colicky symptoms to occur.
It could also help relief symptoms by helping to stretch and relax the Psoas muscle situated in the buttocks and hips. This muscle can become tight after long hour sitting position at desk work.

Free posture assessment by our new therapist AKIO

MOVEMENT PATTERNS AND POSITION

We have new therapist AKIO who has just joined our team from Japan.
He is offering all our new clients a 15 minute free posture assessment to improve your posture.
Assessing posture is fairly subjective and you would normally do it with a view to looking for improvement and establishing what state the musculoskeletal system might be in when you arrive at our clinic.

 If you suffer from discomfort in the muscles and feel like they are being pushed over then it can be tightness and you should progress quickly by practicing the movement and increasing the range in a controlled position.

Through the assessment AKIO may find some restriction in your movement from joints, connective tissue, muscle tightness, imbalance or just poor patterning.  Once he finds out, he will be able to work with you at the clinic, then  you will find out what can be achieved and you’ll be able to sort out what to do next!
