THE BODY NEVER LIES – 2019.06.11
THE BODY NEVER LIES.2 – 2019.07.01
Though the words “The Body Never Lies” are not original – many people have used those words many
times eg. Karen Kain, Artistic Director of The National Ballet, has written a book with that same title, The
Body Never Lies. Those same words have become the words I live by – my creed – for through
experience, I have learned them to be true.
As a dance and theatre artist with a 30+ year professional career, I lived by my body. My body was my
instrument, my vehicle of expression. It was the chassis that I was responsible for nourishing, keeping in
shape, for if allowed to fall into disrepair, my livelihood would follow suit.
So after retiring from performing, teaching, and creating in 2005, I returned to the 3 rd generation
hardware and lumber business co-owned with my – at-the-time – husband and I. My idea was to craft
both a succession plan for our son and retirement plan for my husband. Ironically, the best laid plans
came to nought . . . as the retail landscape changed. Shopping in bricks and mortar storefronts began to
be replaced by online shopping, small independents were being squeezed by the Big Box phenomenon –
there were multiple reasons why this once thriving business began to fail. And along with it, my body.
Until, in 2014, I discovered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy – or BCST – and since that time, my life has
never been the same. For here was a therapy that could help me release all my pain – my mental,
physical, and emotional pain. EUREKA!! It was like MAGIC.
So following this epiphany, this awakening to an amazingly powerful modality, I said “That’s it. This is my
calling – this is what I was meant to do.” So I enrolled in the two year Body Intelligence training and in
2016, acquired four more letters after my name. I was now an RCST – a Registered Biodynamic
So if you find yourself suffering from anxiety, BCST can help calm your system. Depression? BCST will
improve your mood. Migraines, TMJ, motor vehicle accident recovery, chronic pain . . . I have seen
patients with Fibromyalgia make huge strides in reducing their meds, enrolling for yoga class and
generally transforming their lives.
Mind you, this touch modality is not an overnight cure. It is a process which takes place with several
treatments over time. . . like any healing practice. The body needs time to heal and change.
If you think you might be a candidate for this profoundly healing therapy, check out my website @
