An Explanation of the work I have come to embrace fully:

The "Breath of Life" is a term coined by Dr. William Sutherland, DO, the founder of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. According to Sutherland's insights, the human body is animated and sustained by rhythmic forces that exist in the natural world. These forces are responsible for creating, maintaining, and healing our bodies.

Dr. Sutherland discovered that there are subtle rhythms present in and around the body, and these rhythms are generated by an intelligent organizing principle that he referred to as the "Breath of Life." This principle encompasses the fundamental life force that underlies our physical and mental well-being.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapists trained in Sutherland's approach have developed acute perception skills to detect and work with these subtle physiological changes. They recognize that health is never lost, regardless of the ailment, and they focus on identifying parts of the nervous system that may not be functioning optimally.

By utilizing their awareness of the "always available health" within the body and working with the Breath of Life, these therapists aim to assist the body in restoring balance and promoting greater ease. The therapy involves gentle, non-invasive touch on a massage table, with the client fully clothed. The focus is on supporting the overall health of the individual, particularly the nervous system, which plays a crucial role in the body's functioning by constantly sending and receiving information.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is rooted in Dr. Sutherland's original work and his understanding of the interconnectedness of the human physiology and the natural world. It acknowledges the presence of a vital life force and aims to facilitate the body's innate healing capacity.
