“Be still and know”

— Epitaph of Dr. William Garner Sutherland, Originator of Cranial Osteopathy


What is Bio-Dynamic Cranial Touch?

Bio-Dynamic Cranial Touch is a non-medical, non-doing approach where the practitioner abides in neutral, resting in the SA node of her heart. This allows for the Breath of Life’s inherent treatment plan for the client to unfold. Both practitioner and client alike orient their attention within the body and attune to enfoldments of consciousness within the inner body space. This particular form was developed by Charles Ridley. Bio-Dynamic Touch recognizes that the body is an unlimited mystery, and an on-going unfolding creative process that is an expression of consciousness. Bio-Dynamic Touch reorients towards the health and wholeness within you, and the direct felt contact with how The Breath of Life expresses and flows in your body. We trust that what made the body also heals the body. The different enfoldments are revealed to both practitioner and client through the predominant elements that arise during a session.

Session Experiences

Cranial Rhythm-Earth-Tissue: Your history, ego, inner static, buzzing, mind activity, perceiving from the nervous system.
Flow-Water: Your awareness (mind) and your inner body space are in relationship, a sense of healing body-mind, ocean like feelings, heart perceiving.
Luminosity-Air and Fire: Breath becomes slower; awareness expands, spaciousness, lightness, and a sense of delicateness can arise. Self-referencing ceases and becoming one with the Absolute happens.
