The work of Biodynamic Cranial Touch (BCT) as taught by Charles Ridley, founder of the Dynamic Stillness School, follows from and adheres to the final insights of the osteopathic doctors William Sutherland as written by Dr. Roland Becker and clearly defined by Dr. James Jealous. In a BCT session the practitioner maintains in an embodied, neutral disposition while providing still hand contact on a person's body. The ankles, low back, shoulders, and head are examples of hand contact placements. This non-directive form of touch opens a portal to body-felt-sensing for the client. Within the stillness, inherent to this modality, is an invitation to embody awareness (e.g. feel sensations without judgement) through which new aspects and depths of being and health can be experienced. The balancing and supportive effect of BCT promotes healing and well-being.
Some indications for Biodynamic Cranial Touch: *people who are stressed, overstimulated or highly sensitive (e.g. ticklish) *spasticity or tension in muscles *increase body awareness *acute injuries, chronic pain or illness (e.g. may have a calming effect and ease pain) *palliative care *facilitate rest (e.g. after a sporting event, of a repetitive injury, for people who have insomnia) *integrate the effects of practitioner-directed therapeutic techniques
