Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy



the body is like an ocean

rich with hidden treasures

open its innermost chamber

and lights its lamp

craniosacral therapy

The nervous system plays an integral part in our desire for health and wellbeing: It is the interface of body and mind.


Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is a holistic healing modality for nervous system regulation and trauma release. Working with touch and awareness, it uses a 3-layered approach: resonance, attunement and stillness.

Resonance: listening to the body, tissues, fluids, hereby creating a space in which contractions, dissociations and holding patterns are acknowledged, trans-formed and integrated.

Attunement: attuning to the naturally brilliant intelligence of the body-mind and the potency of the fluid body to re-establish balanced alignment and an expansive tidal flow of health.

Stillness: in the deeper layers of attunement the tidal flow slows down considerably until it drops into spacious luminous stillness, which might go beyond any personal experience.

In a session the client relaxes on a massage table. From a calm and centered space the practitioner attends to the clients system through light and gentle touch. This educated and relational touch invites feelings of embodied safety and opens possibilities for the body-mind to unfold its story, its holdings, its aches and pains. This process facilitates the release of stored information and reorganization in a healthy, joyful and resource-ful way.


Each session is tailored to the calling of the field and guided by the vital flow of life in the body, the Breath of Life.

flow of radiant health

The body has a wonderful ability to regulate and heal itself. Similar to an orchestra, in health the organs, tissues and fluids are immersed in the harmony of a fascinating poly-rhythmic dance.


As practitioners we acknowledge the inherent healing forces at work through trained felt-sense awareness. We are tuning into tidal rivers of aliveness deep within the field, which in their reorganizational force invite profoundly nourishing and clearing healing flow throughout the body-mind and show up in the embodied experience of feeling grounded, light, connected and present.


We are especially interested in the expressions of the nervous system, as these reverberate throughout the whole body-mind and set the tone of our overall wellbeing. Release of holding patterns in the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system have the potential to activate deep shifts in the overall flow of aliveness in the human field.


The deeper the nervous system is nourished in its tidal flow between the cranium and the sacrum, the more harmony, balance and aliveness will show within the whole system - and in our lives: our physical wellbeing, emotional ease, mental clarity and spiritual connection.

& pain

Traumatic memories do not only inform the mind, they form the nervous system, the flow of breath, the cells. Any accident and injury, the smaller or bigger variations of neglect and abuse, experiences of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual mal-nourishment can create trauma-responses.


The body-mind, activated and unable to process and digest an overwhelming experience or a series thereof, tightly holds onto it and stores it in the tissues, the joints, the nervous system. The system gets hyper-sensitized and establishes patterns of experience (fight flight fawn fix flop freeze). Dissociation and numbness may be present. The patterns of experience around contractions and dissociations can create serious disturbances and are able to pull a system out of its natural alignment around the spinal midline and out of full embodied interconnectivity and awareness. A cascade of symptoms may follow.


The practitioner is invested to listen deeply into these accumulations to invite a resourceful process of natural release, emotional integration and physical realignment to support the clients body-mind to successfully unlearn traumatic responses and touch back into the experience of health and wellbeing.

trauma is not
what happens to us,

but what we hold inside
in the absence
of an empathetic witness

It fascinates me to observe how life invites us to explore ever new chapters to deepen and expand. Many health journeys are these invitations to grow.

Born and raised in West-Berlin, Germany, I worked with families living in extreme poverty in and around Paris, France, and Berlin, Germany, where I studied historical anthropology and education and specialized in art therapy. Inspired by my yoga practice, I wrote my bachelors on art and embodiment and my masters on the history of embodiment. By then I was teaching in the context of an interdisciplinary research project and finished my phd with honours on embodiment, community and ritual.

Moving out of this urban life style, the wild years of Berlin after the Wall came down, I arrived in Armstrong, BC of all places to live with my shining husband, some happily unbehaving children and all kinds of animals to root into the earth of this stunning land. I began to offer yoga and meditation classes and sessions for several healing modalities that I gathered over the years.

As craniosacral therapy found me, all these approaches weaved together in the biodynamic expression of emotionally integrated somatic healing. It is the listening to stories within the tissues, the potential of growth within the contraction, the polyrhythmic flow of health, of life, just waiting to express, that calls me in. In these moments, when a freeze of trauma melts back into the river of life and the body-mind reconnects to deeper rescources of health, it seems like the Breath of Life lifts the person out of past confinement and into an expanded field of flowing light.



My cranio-sacral sessions with Victoria have been absolutely amazing. Her kindness and gentle nature have aided in deciphering the visuals and feelings I experienced during the sessions. Each session seemed to open up new areas and I believe the result is a decrease in my stress and anxiety levels. One interesting experience was when a body part such as a toe or a shoulder “yelled” at me with some level of pain, and it was attended to during the session, the pain was not only relieved but I felt like another door had opened.

I have also experienced decrease in pain in my osteoarthritic toes.

Do you know to how many doctors and healers and shamans I went over the years? And with nobody I move like I move with you. It's you of course, and it is also this modality, which brings you home in your body.

NR, Lake Country

... a MOST heartfelt thank you for your skill and manner during our session... beautiful, unexpected and profound... 

so happy to have met you.

GB, Vernon

You are very intuitive. The success of these sessions came from my readiness to look within and equally from your intuitive ability to guide me through the unknown. All these places we went to were unknown to me and they were fascinating explorations! It is a profound relationship with you. You have to be a special soul to do that kind of work that you do. Normal counselling is more practical.

MM, Vernon

I feel like I've had an upgrade!

JR, Vernon

You pull this flow into a room. People can breathe around you.

MS, Vernon

I did so much energy work over the years, but this is really different... This really works.

AH, Vernon

I live with stage 4 cancer and what I love about Victoria's cranio-sacral sessions was that she wasn’t afraid to go deep with me, all the time making sure that I was doing ok as we explored and discovered together what was hiding in the dark. As each session progressed I began to discover and feel into parts of my body that I forgot were even there. With Victoria's encouragement I was able to welcome them back and start a new relationship with these parts that so desperately wanted to be loved and acknowledged. Each session I continued to find improvement in my breathing, my strength, my aches and pains and a greater feeling of overall health. I am truly grateful for Victorias courage as she supported me through some real difficult stuff. I feel privileged and truly blessed to work with her!

I am as happy and fulfilled

as butter if it found itself on a warm piece of toast where it can spread out and relax, fill into the cracks and leisurely drip over the sides.

There is no container.
