The role of Massage in addressing and resolving trauma is a rapidly expanding field. Seeing Touch be recognised as a vital part of healing, especially in the challenging realm of trauma therapy, is a real victory. Especially for NO HANDS therapists who have been offering their clients the Touch, boundaries and communication which makes safe trauma release possible.
This recent On Being podcast with renowned trauma therapist & researcher, Bessel van der Kolk, is fascinating on many levels and especially for us in relation to his discussion of the importance of EMBODIMENT for dealing with trauma. Well worth a listen.
