There are no known contraindications on account of this therapy. Because there isn't any external intervention, changes in the system follow its inherent wisdom.
That depends on how quickly your system responds, the nature of your illness, and importantly for how long you have been living with the presenting problem. Within a couple of sessions it may become clear.
It's not recommended to stop any medication without consulting your medical practitioner. BCST will work alongside and never in opposition to any existing treatment that you may be taking. Regular sessions may eventually assist in lowering dosage to a degree, but again only under medical supervision.
This therapy is not energy work. It doesn't involve channeling, white light, energy exchange, external intervention, reiki healing, occult influences, etcetera.
It helps us understand your physical and mental/emotional state. It reveals underlying conditioned patterns in the body. Regular sessions lead to energy restoration and a fully relaxed state-of-being.
BCST is a light touch therapy given to a fully-clothed individual. Like cranial osteopathy, its originator, it works with the central nervous system but without manipulation of the body. The aim being to regain balance and homeostasis within the tissues and fluids of the body.
Touch is the most energizing, revitalizing, comforting, and life-affirming sense gifted to mankind. When touch is provided without intent, expectation, need, demand, desire, the resulting change in the receiver is pivotal.
Healing remains within the context of the body's present needs and cannot be forced upon the client. This touch simply invokes embryological or original health that brings about healing.
Yes you can if you wish, preferably not on the same day. A couple of cranio sessions might show you if it's the right one for you.
However, to make note of any changes that accrue staying commited to one therapy helps. Mixing alternate therapies can confuse the body's responses.
