About us

History of the ICSB

The history of ICSB, International Institute for Craniosacral Balancing®, starts in the early 80’s.
At that time Bhadrena C. Tschumi, as craniosacral therapist, supervisor and teacher, developed a new, comprehensive curriculum in craniosacral therapy, which introduced the quality of presence and awareness into the existing programs.
From 1985 until now she has been working full-time as craniosacral therapist and teacher.

In 1986 she founded the ICSB, International Institute for Craniosacral Balancing®, which is co-lead by Kavi A. Gemin since 1995.

Their connection to the Multiversity in Pune, India, led to worldwide activities as teachers. Since 1995 Bhadrena C. Tschumi Gemin and Kavi A. Gemin teach their work together in Europe, India, Canada, USA, Australia and Japan.

The specialisation of craniosacral biodynamics developed in the mid-90’s and is, since then in the foreground of all activities at ICSB.

The orientation to presence and mindfulness of the practitioner is reflected in the present curriculum and training for BCST, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist.

For Bhadrena and Kavi craniosacral biodynamics is not just a profession but a calling, which they follow with joy and dedication.

Mission statement

Our mission is not an abstract concept, but a practical orientation and direction, based on a long-lived history which is reflected in the development of ICSB.

The years of experience and deep conviction, enliven our mission and render it concrete.

Thanks to our experience and our motivation, we intend to:

  • Maintain an attitude of openness to change and recognition of the quality and resources of each individual
  • Accompany students with dedication, efficiency and competence
  • Offer solidarity and support to practitioner
  • Convey the latest developments in an understandable and practical way
  • Make the work accessible to a wider public, to support the development of consciousness and the expression of human potential

ICSB as institute

The Institute is a relatively small, yet internationally active school with high and verifiable quality standards.

It is active since 1986 in an autonomous and self-sufficient way and it offers high quality trainings and continuing education in complementary therapy.

A team of competent teacher accompanies the students with:

  • motivation
  • involvement
  • competence
  • experience and knowledge
  • passion

Each student is followed individually and carefully, respecting his or her learning needs.
During the training a solid foundation for trust and respect with our future colleagues is built.


Our intention is not only the teaching of a method, but to support the development of an inner attitude and a view of the world that allows to accompany the individual towards greater wholeness, integrity and health.

We believe that Craniosacral Biodynamics is a life perspective, which supports the essence of each individual towards growth and development of their inner potential.


The human being is an integration of different aspects: physical, mental and spiritual. As an entity we are in a constant process of change and growth.

In addition to the tendency towards the satisfaction of basic survival needs, we believe that humanity has an impulse towards an expansion of consciousness.

It is our belief that every individual has the opportunity and the potential to realise himself, to expand their self-understanding and to achieve greater coherence and completeness. A potential for self-realisation accessible to all levels, physical, mental and spiritual.

The biodynamic understanding supports the evolutionary possibility to become a healthy, self-reliant, self-actualising and creative person.

The programs and studies presented by the ICSB are oriented to the individual's resources and integrate the social, physical, mental, spiritual and systemic aspects in a holistic way.
