"My belief is in the blood and flesh as being wiser than the intellect. The body-unconscious is where life bubbles up in us. It is how we know that we are alive, alive to the depths of our souls and in touch somewhere with the vivid reaches of the cosmos."
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Life expresses itself as motion and all healthy, living tissues subtly 'breathe' with the motion of life. In response to physical knocks or emotional stress, the body's tissues may contract. Over time any unresolved tensions, strains or traumas may create states of inertia in the body; which may accumulate and hinder our bodies natural motion, and thus our ability to function fully . Common causes of inertia are physical injuries, emotional and psychological trauma or stresses, birth trauma and toxicity.
