Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST or 'cranio' for short) is a subtle yet powerful therapy for awakening your full health potential. With origins in osteopathy, cranio is founded on thorough anatomical understanding. As a holistic therapy, it moves beyond physical structures, employing deep listening to tune into the subtle interplay of body, mind, environment, and the essential forces of life itself.
The term 'biodynamic' means our focus as practitioners is on connecting with the body's innate wisdom for well-being. With gentle hand holds, we lead your system into a place of deep stillness where you can rediscover the very same organising intelligence that grew you from embryo to fetus to child to adult.
As well as being a great remedy for every-day stress, cranio can support recovery from many and varied types of injury and illness, both acute and chronic. If you would like to know how cranio could benefit you, drop us a line or book in for an initial consultation using the links below.

Originally trained as a seismic engineer, Jonathan has a deep appreciation of the dynamics that exist between physical structures, their environment and the forces of nature.
As a long-term practitioner of yoga, meditation, mindfulness and qi-gong, he has taken this exploration inward to develop an intimate experiential knowledge of how body and mind respond to the many and varied challenges of life.
As well as practicing cranio, Jonathan leads classes, workshops and retreats where the focus is often on developing a sense of 'embodied presence' to support well-being, as well as feelings of integration, joy and belonging (see www.openbreath.org).
Jonathan lives in Nelson, New Zealand with his partner and two young children. He integrates a full family life with a dedication to the practice and teaching of a universal path of healing and awakening.
