Conveniently located on West Broadway in Kitsilano, Vancouver, Bodydynamic was established in 2004 where Birgit Michels began developing her personal style of deep manual massage, movements, joint release, spinal alignment & acupressure.

Since graduating from a 2-year program as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist in 2010,
she is able to include working directly with the central nervous system, supporting health from within on a very powerful level.

I’ve had a lot of Craniosacral sessions over the years, and Birgit is by far the best. My energy field expands, and I feel a profound relaxation. Her skill and her love are transmitted through her hands. I’m impressed by the passion that she feels for her work. The other modalities she blends into her treatments become a holistic support for my process of unfolding.

When I was looking for a massage therapist, I searched the Net and happened upon Birgit’s website. I read the testimonials and on that basis, made an appointment. Now I want to add my comments so that others will be encouraged to give Birgit a try. My problem had been hip pain, but I got so much more from the treatments inc. relaxation techniques and noticeable improvements in my breathing. Besides that, it feels so good. Almost five years later, I still visit Birgit regularly.

Birgit is one of the rare therapists who really listens to you and your body.  Guided by your body needs she works together with you to give you as much healing power as you can possibly take. The unique combination of Birgit’s professionalism, kindness, wisdom and the healing effect the therapy has on my whole body makes me come back over and over again. I have been visiting her now for a year and a half. When I first came to see Birgit, I almost lost any hope to ever heal my neck and shoulder that was bothering me for the last 15 years regardless of therapies I did before. The very first session she showed me that my body can live without pain. And with every following session, my state was only improving.  Every visit to Birgit is filled with warmth and kindness. She gently makes you tap into yourself, increasing your self-awareness and helping being kind to yourself on your journey. It is a very wholesome and unique experience.
