Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a quiet form of body work that works to find a balance between the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and restore) nervous systems. Our bodies have an enormous ability to heal if we can settle into stillness. The practitioner, through the use of a gentle touch and their own slowed tempo, assists your body in finding that restorative place. Ayme Frye graduated from a 700 hour training at 3rd Coast Craniosacral in Evanston. Through the work she has gained experience dealing with back pain, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, fibromyalgia and migraines. To find out more visit aymefrye.com
