Learn how to Touch: Courses in Craniosacral Therapy

Relational Touch – Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy in 200 words

Humans are polyrhythmic. With skill, the rhythms sometimes coalesce into a feeling of wholeness.

Touch is enormously powerful. Non-doing, ‘relational touch’, that listens without fixed agendas, supports coherent rhythms and order to emerge.

There is a distinct quality of feeling a whole person. In addition, there is a distinct quality of feeling a whole person in a wider context that includes the surrounding space.

Aliveness is founded on movement, breath and awareness.

The taoist notion of order in the world as the ‘way’ of least resistance is deeply useful. Manifesting health can appear as elegance and non-striving in our interactions, coupled with a sense of letting go from within.

We can have perceptions of other people, but we can wildly over interpret what we feel. In the absence of the possibility of objective knowing, it is good to be super cautious.

Truth emerges in the dynamic between the client and therapist. Focus on stories of safety and agency. Expand people’s ‘felt sense’ capabilities. Try shifting the narrative of self away from limiting metaphors of damage and permanency to adaptability and renewal.
