Member Spotlight - Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

A Profound State of Calm

Medical research estimates that up to 90% of disease and illness are stress related. Yet, there are few therapeutic modalities that address pain and illness through nervous system work that are capable of releasing unresolved stress and trauma held deep within the body in just a single visit. Using gentle techniques and light hands-on pressure, craniosacral therapy calms the central nervous system and brings the body and mind back into a parasympathetic (rest and digest) state, recovering the body’s energy that is being sapped to address pain, illness, and Injury.

Sound too good to be true? Just ask some of Christi Kirk’s many clients...most of whom had

never heard of biodynamic craniosacral therapy until years of trial and error produced no results or relief. Clients report the effect of feeling deeply relaxed or dreamy during and for some time after a session. “Grounded, centered and calm” and “better equipped to handle daily stress” are frequent comments following just one session.

After more than eight years suffering from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, Christi Kirk

turned to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (or BCST) in North Berkeley. “It was as if my

nervous system was stuck in the ‘on’ position for fight or flight and like many people, I existed in a perpetual state of stress.” Addressing pain and illness through nervous system work was a “game changer” and Kirk found renewed life with a pain-free body, more energy, a clearer mind, and better sleep. Now she’s a patient turned practitioner, called a “body listener” in the trade.
