Naomi Chuah graduated from Body Intelligence, a two year training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. BCST is a physical therapy that has its roots in working with the skeletal system, in particular the cranium and sacrum, especially as these pertain to the nervous system and fluids of the body. BCST has since expanded to a whole body therapy. As a therapist holds the place of concern in a calm and settled manner, the body is able to attune to the calm and release tensions. Held energies are then released to the rest of the body, and fluids are able to circulate more freely. Naomi has found of particular interest how messages get circulated in the body via nervous system, hormones and chemicals, creating feedback loops of information. It has been found that the nervous system, immune system, and hormonal systems all receive chemical messages from each other, a lot of this exchange happening in the fluids. A lot of freedom can open up in the body when this exchange of information is flowing smoothly!
This therapy is great for patterns that have a stressful or traumatic edge to them, be it emotional or physical. It is being found that the body is incredibly intelligent at resolving its own patterns. It just needs to feel safe to do so. As stated in attachment theory, our bodies are hardwired to need safe touch, even before food. When we are born, safe touch is our first need. It enables us to obtain food and attune to continuing safety and love. When a body feels safe, it can then let go of patterns no longer needed and move toward greater health. Naomi found the study of trauma of particular interest, how emotional trauma gets played out physically and how physical trauma can play out emotionally. She has also taken extra workshops on attachment theory, and how this plays out in how we experience our bodies and our environment. Naomi is registered with the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America.
