Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy comes out of Osteopathic Medicine, and is a subtle yet profound approach to healing that mobilizes soft tissue restrictions. In a Craniosacral session, the therapist works directly with the nervous system and fluid dynamics present in the anatomy (blood, lymph, cerebrospinal fluid, motility of viscera, fascia, bones, and nerves). It is a gentle, non-invasive method of treatment that has proven to be effective in treating a wide range of medical problems associated with pain, trauma, and dysfunction. Dominique integrates Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and Myofascial Release.
Shirodhara is an amazing, unique body therapy from the ancient natural medical system of Ayurveda. Shirodhara has a profound impact on the nervous system. This means, the treatment directly and immediately calms, relaxes and has a cleansing effect on the mind and nerves.

The procedure is also said to synchronize alpha brain waves, enhance the circulatory system of the brain, improve mental clarity, and release deeply trapped toxins within the fluid system in and around the brain. This work entails the process of warm medicated aromatic oil or milk is poured in a continuous stream on the forehead, specific to third eye.
