Biodynamic CST quotes.

The natural healing force in each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. 

~ Hippocrates

To find health should be the object of the physician. Anyone can find disease.

~ Andrew Taylor Still, founder of osteopathy

Every single cell of the body, every single individual cell residing within the fluids in which it is being made, is being flexed and extended, externally and internally rotated 10 to 12 times a minute.

~ Rollin Becker, cranial osteopath

In reality, our anatomicophysiological body has not divided itself into the many parts we know as physicians… This no-name body, which we use in our walkabout on earth, is working on a simple one-on-one relationship both within itself and with its environment… Life in the body and its manifested motion and movement is working as a unified whole mechanism to manifest health, to resist and combat disease, and to correct or adapt to trauma.

~ Rollin Becker, cranial osteopath

We learn to sense the Whole… Patients are very much aware that a different attention is present. They comment on it. It’s not intellectual or intuitive. It’s aboriginal, instinctual… The moment is filled with the effort to be present with the Health in the patient and the story as it unfolds to its own answer… We learn our skills by apprenticeship to something that has no name but it teaches us a great deal.

~ James Jealous, cranial osteopath

In this approach, the patient is looked at from the inside-out, rather than from the outside-in. As an outsider looking in, it’s usually more difficult to know what needs to happen, but as an insider looking out, it’s easier to follow the natural priorities of treatment as they unfold.

~ Michael Kern, cranial osteopath, naturopathic doctor

We use our hands diagnostically, perceptually, and therapeutically — that’s how simple and profound this is. We are not listening for symptoms but for a pre-established priority set in motion by the Health of the patient.

~ James Jealous, cranial osteopath
