Currently the 2-year training of a biodynamic craniosacral therapist includes cross-disciplinary studies in embryology, neurology, attachment psychology, and contemplative spiritual practice, as well as traditional anatomy and holistic somatics.
Embryology has provided a special contribution to this training. Some embryologists have studied the beginnings of human form and concluded that the forces driving the development and health of the human embryo are in the fluids of the body, right down to the cellular level. It's these forces that the biodynamic crainosacral therapist contacts through listening with his or her hands.
From the perspective of BCST, then, our health begins with our origin as an embryo. We can use the force of Primary Respiration still at work in our bodies since the beginning of our lives to find our original, inherent health, naturally supporting and enhancing our overall health.
