Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle and effective approach to restoring balance and resiliency to your body and mind. By relieving many of the negative effects of stress, tension or injury, it is deeply relaxing and health promoting. Through skilled and listening touch, the practitioner comes in contact with very slow, subtle rhythms in the body. These rhythms communicate information about the health of the body, the balance and motion in the structures of the cranium and spine, and the vitality of the various systems in the body. They organize and contain the imprint of stressful experiences, injuries, or illness as well as those of health. The practitioner works with these rhythms to help restore the original pattern of health inherent in the body. The balancing of the autonomic nervous system which regulates every function in the body, provides the ideal environment for restoration of the whole body. Working with these rhythms establishes a resynchronization of all systems of the body as a whole unit of function, undivided. It works to bring about a complete balance with the tissues, fluids and vital energies of the body.

A few days after having dental work that left me in pain, I received a session from Vileena that helped my body release the pain and anesthesia. During the session I could taste the anesthesia as it left my body and miraculously the tooth pain was gone.
