What is Biodynamics?
Millions of years of evolution have shaped the form, functions, processes and movements of the human body. The body has a natural and inherent ability to self-correct and to heal. This intelligence is an ordering principle of Nature. Health is a force of Nature that is present in the body from the moment of conception; it grows the embryo from a single cell to a fully-developed baby. After birth, the forces of health facilitate regeneration – the body has the ablity to recover from injury, accident and disease, moving always toward a state of equilibrium and wholeness.
Biodynamics engages with this inherent movement toward wholeness. The work is about trusting the body’s intelligence to choose the best way to heal, recover and function harmoniously as a whole.
The biodynamic practitioner does not impose a plan on the client’s system. No external mechanical force is imposed. She does not focus on the symptoms of the individual body parts, as the symptom may be in one location but the cause usually lies in an imbalance of the whole. The practitioner listens to the system as a whole and supports and facilitates the systemic movement toward health and harmonious functioning. She supports and enhances the system’s natural capacity to self-correct, creating optimal conditions for recovery and healing.
