Gyalai Tünde, CST-D

The coordinator of the institute, CS1 educator and the international therapist is Gyalai Tünde - Tina. For 16 years she has been involved in massage techniques and has always worked to improve her knowledge and practice in order to improve her work and respond more effectively to the challenges of the profession.

In 2002 she completed her training in therapeutic massage at the Radnicki University in Novi Sad. Since then, Tui's massage and reflexology courses in Lovran, Croatia (2011) have been followed, and then the fascio-therapy of the association "Touch to Health" in Belgrade (2014/2015).

Two years ago, that is, 2016, she was very interested in this technique, and soon she felt on her own case also positive effects of the technique that strengthened her in the intention to bring this technique to Serbia. Considering that for 16 years she has been engaged in and improved in massage techniques, she immediately recognized the therapeutic potential of craniosacral technique (CST) and decided to go to her cost more thoroughly and in more detail, and finally, to train her. For this purpose, she applied for the first level of training at the Upledger Institute in Budapest, where she finished first and second level of Craniosacral Technique (CS1, CS2). Shortly thereafter, the next two levels, III and IV, ended the same at the institutes in Lisbon and Athens last year under the name Somato Emotional Release (SER1, SER2). This year, Craniosacral in Pediatrics (CSP1) ended in July, which includes work with children and infants.

Recognizing the benefits of this technique, she contacted the US central office, which ultimately resulted in a visit to the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach, Florida, on three occasions for a period of 4 weeks where she volunteered. There she had the opportunity to get full insight about the source of this technique and cooperate with this institution. As a result of great cooperation, a business idea was born to open a licensed center in Serbia, the founder and educator of which was. This procedure for obtaining a license was legally enforced in March 2018. -

This year, in September 2018, the Semi-Sensory Craniosacral Sensation (SICS) Seminar and Advanced Advanced Level (ADV1) were completed.

"In my work experience, I had thousands of satisfied clients with whom I had long-term cooperation and professional confidence, and this has always been an incentive for me to further improve myself, if I could not provide them with a better therapeutic treatment.Worked  the children with special needs, pregnant women, with people with rheumatoid arthritis, with allergies, worked with anxiety and depression, skin diseases, with osteopathic disorders, with chronic migraine, with tinnitus, with hormonal disorders, then with asthmatics, and in the postoperative stage of cancer So, during my therapeutic practice, I have encountered numerous work challenges and that's why I was able to recognize the potential and importance of Craniosacral Therapy (CST).
