Liza Borodkin, C.S.T.
Cranial-sacral Stillness Work

Modality – Cranial-sacral StillnessWork.

What is it: it is a form of hands-on healing that Liza had developed based on biodynamic craniosacral therapy, where she follows the movement of consciousness in the client's body, which allows it to reach a deep state of balance and profoundly reorganize around its true Health. This whole-istic approach allows the bodymind to reveal the real cause of any condition, be it physical, emotional, or spiritual. The beauty of this method is that it directly engages the body's own self-healing processes to resolve the condition. This extremely gentle yet powerful approach produces lasting and permanent changes by connecting the client to their inherent Health that underlies any condition - leaving the person independent and resilient.

How does a typical session go: Every session begins with a verbal check-in. It is a period of several minutes where the client shares what is presently coming up for them, and set their intention for the work. Verbal sharing in itself has a therapeutic effect, and setting of an intention organizes the field of the session around it. Connection to the Tide, the self-healing force, is established during this time, so the person may already feel themselves in the session process then. This is followed by a hands-on part of the session (although sometimes the work is done off the body), using an extremely light static touch on a fully-clothed body, which usually lasts 40-45 minutes. During this time, Liza helps the client to connect to the Tide, the self-healing force that is a manifestation of one's Health, and allows it to process whatever pathology or disease that may be present. During this time, she accompanies the client through the journey of their self-healing, in safety and with support. The session also removes hindrances to the client's self-healing ability. The hands-on part of the session is then followed by a verbal integration period, where impressions of the session are shared, and sense is made of the experience on the table. This interchange between a direct hands-on experience and verbal sharing allows for a deep integration of the session work, as well as balancing of the right and left hemispheres of the brain.
