About training Instructors
Bhadrena Tschumi Gemin BCST, RCST®
Bhadrena Tschumi Gemin, MA, BCST, RCST® She is the founder and coordinator of ICSB.
She is a trained teacher and an educator. Her formal education was in Switzerland and the USA. She entered the field of humanistic psychology with trainings in different approaches (Gestalt, TZI, Roger, NLP, Focusing, prenatal and birth psychology, developmental psychology). She spent 2 years at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, where she was trained in Gestalt therapy and bodywork, specifically in the Esalen massage and in the Trager approach. In the 80’s she discovered Craniosacral Therapy as a therapeutic approach and it turned out to become the work, which inspired her the most and which she is passionate about until today.
In 1986 she founded the ICSB, International Institute for Craniosacral Balancing® and created a unique and comprehensive training program. In the 30 years of experience in the field of therapy and the healing arts her approach in the craniosacral method evolved organically and underwent many different stages to reach the expression in the current training program. She is now teaching the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy and integrates the newest understandings of neurobiology, embryology, trauma resolution, pre- and perinatal therapy and the essential work of the Diamond Logos approach in the professional craniosacral trainings of the ICSB.
She is teaching in Europe, Japan, Canada, Australia and India. On her travels she inspired thousands of people and is happy to pass on her passion for Craniosacral Biodynamics.
