|BCST is performed fully clothed on a massage table and employs light touch and resonant language to help clients drop into deep states of relaxation, support and wholeness. There is no pressure applied to the body so it is useful in times of injury, activation or inflammation. BCST is helpful for chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, emotional trauma of all kinds, inflammation, auto-immune disorders, insomnia and general discomfort. The biodynamic approach is grounded in something called Primary Respiration, which is the way that the life force expresses a particular breath-like movement through the whole body.
These rhythms, tide-like in nature, show the practitioner the patterns that are held in the body as a result of trauma, injury and difficult life circumstances; they also make the healing decisions that the body is ready for, session by session. Thus the client’s deepest needs for wholeness and well-being are slowly but steadily addressed, in a gentle and powerful way. BCST is recommended as an ongoing therapy-kind of like regularly changing the oil in a car-since it deeply soothes the Central Nervous System, helping to release somato-emotional patterns of stress and shut-down/freeze/dissociation.
Having weekly or bi-weekly sessions for a period of time can completely alter the way a person lives in their body and create a deep sense of well-being. It is also effective as a form of “first aid,” if there is an injury like whiplash, and is an excellent support for pre-and post-surgical procedures.
