Reasons people sought craniosacral biodynamics (spring 2022)

Here are some reasons people have come to me for Craniosacral Biodynamics sessions in the past few months. Most of the time, people had multiple issues going on. I’ve consolidated them into general categories.

You can see that the range is wide.

  • breathing issues
  • muscle tension and/or pain (neck, throat, shoulders, upper back, lower back, chest, jaw, face, hip, glute, calf)
  • muscle twitching
  • migraines, chronic headaches, chronic migraines
  • fatigue, chronic fatigue
  • restlessness
  • nerve energy, nerve damage
  • integration after trauma, recovery from multiple traumas, emotional pain due to severe abuse in infancy, physical and emotional childhood trauma
  • re-regulation after long COVID, reset after multiple trials due to pandemic
  • sadness, grief
  • emotional upheaval, severe emotional shock after break-up by text (don’t do it!), feeling unsettled from work
  • managing bipolar condition
  • empty feeling at solar plexus, chaotic feeling at solar plexus, using personal power instead of hiding
  • insomnia
  • better heart rate variability
  • stress, anxiety, wanting to feel secure and relaxed, anxious about upcoming presentation
  • auto-immune issues
  • holding heaviness in part of body
  • adjusting to new nightguard
  • wonky atlas, cranium feels unbalanced
  • withdrawal from psychiatric drug while waiting for new one to kick in
  • reset after various health issues
  • addressing a layer of inertia
  • three past untreated concussions

You may be curious how one bodywork modality can work with so many different issues.

The simple reason is that Craniosacral Biodynamics augments your own system’s ability to heal, no matter the cause of dysfunction. Everything in your system has a pattern, and sometimes patterns become unbalanced or strained.

Practitioners trained in Craniosacral Biodynamics help these patterns rebalance.

How does it work? During a session we get very quiet and still. I tune into your patterns, and with attention and support, your system starts reorganizing your strained patterns.

You get very relaxed, maybe even fall asleep or go into a trance, and afterwards you feel and function better.

November 13 is Cindy Anderson Day!

Cindy Anderson was one of my teachers in both the basic licensing program and the advanced program at Lauterstein-Conway Massage School. She taught Swedish massage and Shiatsu. I’ve always appreciated Cindy’s abundant joie de vivre, her sense of humor, and her clear sparkling presence.

Cindy is struggling with health issues that require medical intervention. To help offset the cost at a time when she’s struggling with her health and unable to work, Lauterstein-Conway has designated Tuesday, November 13, as Cindy Anderson Day.

You can participate in multiple ways.

  • You can donate directly any time to her GoFundMe campaign.
  • If you get one of my bodywork sessions on Tuesday, November 13, I will donate the full cost to Cindy’s campaign. I’m hoping for a full day, so sign up now!
  • There’s a benefit at Slow Poke’s Brisket Shack on Saturday, November 17, starting at 4 pm in Manchaca. Take I-35 or Manchaca Road south to FM 1626. It’s a food trailer court east of the railroad tracks and Twin Creeks stoplight, at 737 FM 1626.

If I hear of any more benefits or ways to contribute, I will update this post.
