You may find this a funny question—and it
is—but it shifts the typical focus from
"What hurts?" to "Where is my health?"
Maybe it's your belly or big toe or, perhaps,
your elbow never felt better!
The intention of these sessions is not to fix
problems or ailments but rather to lend a
hand as your system finds its own health,
resets your nervous system, and releases
patterns of old traumas, injuries, stress, etc.
The principle of biodynamic craniosacral is
that the body yearns for health and
wellbeing and knows the best way to
homeostasis – an equilibrium.
From the moment you enter the office, my
foremost concern is that you feel safe with
me and in the space.
Feel the calm
My hope for you is an experience of deep –
even profound – calm as you sink into
this kind and compassionate way of being.
You'll be fully clothed
During these sessions you will be fully
dressed (with the exception of shoes) on a
massage table. Initial talking will include a
focus on your comfort feelings of safety.
How I heard about craniosacral therapy
My first encounter with this therapy was after
my infant son underwent extensive brain
surgery. It was a recommended modality to
bring him back to his own state of balance.
Coming to craniosacral myself

after sessions, and it is where my body
feels most at home with itself.
For two years I studied in Washington, DC
with the Wellness Institute under Roger
Gilchrist. I am a Registered Biodynamic
Craniosacral Therapist (RCTA) through the
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Association of North America (BCTA/NA)
where I also serve as a Board of Directors

I am excited to be bringing this
lineage of craniosacral
to Laramie, Wyoming.
My British colleague, Helen Robbins, kindly gives her permission to post this beautifully-animated description of BCST.
