Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy supports your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and building your underlying energy. As a practitioner I get a sense of patterns (physical, emotional and spiritual) held throughout your body and help facilitate the process of resolving them in a supported and comfortable way. The session usually lasts an hour, although this can vary. You remain clothed and will usually lay face up or on your side. I make light contact with your head, the base of your spine, and other areas, encouraging your body to relax and begin to make the changes it needs. Because the body functions as a whole, I may focus on other areas other than where your symptoms occur. Because it is so gentle and non invasive, Craniosacral Therapy is suitable for everyone from newborns to the elderly. Mothers and babies often come for problems associated with difficult or traumatic births. Letting go of tension and fear held in the body enables both to settle into calmness.
Sound Healing - Himalayan Singing Bowls
Sound has the ability to shift frequencies, therefore we may experience a change from being in a low states such as fear to a higher vibrations of joy and love. Some of the benefits of sound healing may include a reduction in stress, anxiety and pain and an improvement in energy, mood and sleep.
My choice of sacred instruments to use are the Himalayan singing bowls, shamanic drumming and voice.
