Many people are confused about what Biodynamic Cranio and lymphatic work is.
Here are the actual definitions.
These therapies include: Biodynamic Craniosacral & Biodynamic Lymphatic Therapies
- Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy — a gentle yet profound, non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. I hold at the joints, beginning at the ankles to allow the body to relax and unwind.
- Biodynamic Lymphatic Therapy — a technique used to move lymphatic fluid that pools throughout the body. I think of lymphs as the body’s waste removal system. When working effectively, the lymphs carry the waste out of the body. When the body is injured, the lymph system focuses on protecting the injured area. The fluid surrounds the injury, basically immobilizing it. This fluid can be drained so that a trained professional can then asses the injury.
How I do this
Utilizing Biodynamic Cranio techniques, along with geometry and physics I drain the fluids that pool at your joints and in your belly. By minimizing the fluids, bones and muscles will return to their original locations without pushing or prodding.
Most people are concerned about being touched. When you are in pain, being touched either reduces or increases the pain. My hope, by tracking the origins of the pain, is to lessen the pain.
For those with closed head injuries or new to this type of therapy, we want to know what to expect, in a session. The fear of the unknown is as bad as the pain. Which is why I am going to tell you what to expect.
- First, clothes stay on. Shoes do not. You will lie face-up on my table with a small pillow under your neck and a larger one, under your knees.
- I will start by holding your ankles. I do this to listen to the pulses at your ankles. If I do not feel them strongly, I will move to your knees or your hips. There will be a lot of holding at this point. I will also hold at your other joints, but not all of them in the beginning.
- Our session is one hour. A long-time if you aren’t used to being touched; a short time when holding injured body parts.
- At the end of the session, I do give homework that will teach you how your body actually works and how you can help your own body. Examples of the homework I will give you are: I will teach you how to hold your hips so that that they are in alignment; how to drain your arms; and how to lovingly rub your knees.
