The Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America (BCTA/NA)

The Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America (BCTA/NA) is a non-profit organization supporting practitioners and teachers of the biodynamic model of craniosacral therapy, as developed by Franklyn Sills, in the lineage of William Garner Sutherland, DO, and others.

BCTA/NA employs an established curriculum to approve teachers, as well as recognize, register and provide a referral service for Registered Craniosacral Therapists (RCST®s). We also educate the public about the training and practice of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.


  BCST is a healing art that works with the forces that create and maintain health in the human system. It has its roots in osteopathy and has evolved to include influences from advances in neuroscience, human development, pre and perinatal psychology, and trauma resolution. Practitioners use an educated gentle, non-invasive touch to listen for and to engage the expressions of health in the system. BCST supportsnervous system regulation and allows the resolution of conditions resulting from stress and trauma.
