Methods of treatment based on Franklyn Sills's Biodynamic Approach to Craniosacral Therapy. Contact the essence of life within through stillness, with no force from the outside, as the system shifts to wholeness and primary respiration. By building a relationship with fluid tissue - shock will move, the central nervous system will clear. Inherent health emerges by uncovering what the whole self needs to rest in alignment and express as the true self. Especially helpful for chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD and developmental or early life trauma. Read what a session is like here.
