Trauma is not in the event. It is in our nervous system.
Healing happens through the body, HERE and NOW.

Feedback from patients about trauma support

A note from Zia:
Many patients have been generous enough to share their experiences and feedback from the treatments they received and I sincerely thank them for this. The feedbacks help others to understand the depth of this work, its gentle approach and also settle the anxiety of those wanting to try a new therapy but nervous of its outcome. BCST is safe, gentle, non invasive and there are no contraindications to its use.

Here are some treatment feedbacks classified in their respective groups:

Trauma Support

“Beyond expectations. Did not expect such a fast recovery.
Never been able to achieve this minimum level of medication in the past 12 yrs. When I first came to Zia is was on 35 medications a day. In the beginning I was unable to walk in a straight line.  Now even my mental process has improved, I can do Sudoku and Kakurao at a fast speed successfully.” I have also started slowly working.”

I came to this technique as I was facing an emotional crisis, the build-up of which left ‘no space’ in my body or mind and for the first time I felt ‘full’ of emotion. This manifested outwardly in my space as well, and I felt overwhelmed with events & people around me.  Zia helped me create that space for myself.  I felt invigorated, energized and also less stressed by the situation around me as I did feel my session helped create that space for me.
The second time I came in with a frozen shoulder (left) and a back pain (right).  Both pain situations as I was going through the same in my life (2 choices). After my session, I felt 75% better, and within the next few days my pain was gone.
Craniosacral therapy works deeper ways, which cannot be explained.  The benefits may not be felt instantly, but it supersedes any medication one might take on a superficial level to deal with symptoms.

I had lived a life of extremes, extreme success from extreme effort. But the stress and agonizing moments that I had experienced had turned me into a nervous wreck and my day to day life was affected.Panic attacks and continuous worrying were denying me the basic peace that everyone craves for.I had tried yoga, homeopathy, pranayam but they all had temporary effects, which faded away in time and I was back spending time in my private hell.
I read about the concept of Craniosacral Therapy in a daily newspaper and was keen on trying out what it had to offer.I found in Zia a gifted human being who could not only empathize with my feelings but also gradually helped to uncover the pain I was hiding inside.To say what I felt in a few but powerful words I could truly say God had mercy on me to put me onto her.
I sincerely thank Zia for helping me in ways only an affected person can understand.
Thank you.

I had completely forgotten about my surgery of when I was only 5 yrs old. Now at the age of 48yrs I started with craniosacral therapy to simply improve my sleep and overall health. During the second session the while working on my head, Zia suddenly asked me if I had had a surgery anytime, since I did not remember I said ‘No’. Then she said that she picked up residual effects of anesthesia in my body and that’s when I remembered my surgery. I was shocked that my body was still holding that effect and as the session progressed, she explained to me how the body was locked into post surgical trauma, and with a few more sessions I was able to experience a new kind of fresh energy in my body with most of my symptoms released.

Wholistic Recoveries

Zia has cultivated a powerful gift that uses profound knowledge, deep insight and a multi-faceted (OR a breadth of) experience to gently propel her client into and through their healing process.
I experienced immediate and lasting relief from a chronic headache after one session.  My anxiousness, travel-sickness and out-of-balance nervous system were all dramatically improved with one session and resolved after four sessions of CST/SE. 
Zia's CST/SE sessions were powerful enough to correct my problems, and her work is also most effective when used as a preventative health measure to achieve and maintain overall well being.

I was emotionally and mentally very stressed and just out of the hospital following bad attack of thrombosis. Craniosacral sessions eased the pain in my leg and helped me with personal issues, finding direction and clarity in my life again.

Started therapy about two years back. I was a very different person before I started the therapy, I was extra emotional, sensitive and never stood up for myself. I didn't think I had the strength to fight back for anything. I also was suffering from severe back ache because of an accident I had when I was much younger. After starting therapy, I have grown as a person, both emotionally and professionally. Professionally because Zia has helped me find my ways and she's helped me look within and realize what I've got. And emotionally- well, my family and friends say they've never seen me more confident and strong. Craniosacral Therapy has helped me much more than I can express right now. So much that I am actually considering taking it up as my career.

I used to suffer from a strong mental resistance pattern, which not only stopped me from living my life to the fullest but also resulted into a deteriorated physical condition. Craniosacral treatments helped kick start the self healing process within, relaxing my muscular strain and easing mental stress.

Every time I receive a craniosacral session I feel clean from inside. Its as though my inner being has been washed and cleansed. It calms my mind, relaxes my muscles, I feel balanced and together.

I asked Zia to take my son in for craniosacral treatment to see if there was any scope for improvement as he has been diagnosed as a slow learner. He is in his mid 30's now and lives life within limitations. After the first session Zia inquired about my health and life during the time when I was carrying my son. I confided that it was a very traumatic time being newly married and with abusive behavior from family members. She then asked me to come in for treatment of post trauma during my son's craniosacral sessions. As she was working on his nervous system she inquired with me about my trauma and helped me release it through therapeutic dialoging skills. She noticed that restrictions in my son's central nervous system and bones around the head and neck were starting to free up. After that session I noticed my son to be more intimate and emotional with his wife, and me. As though building his first relations with his mother and through that experiencing emotional relations. Other family members also noticed that he was more aware and sharp. It was very interesting to see how we unconsciously held in our nervous system that which we consciously did not even remember. I personally felt lighter and better within myself and forgiveness came easier.
