What is Gentle Touch?
For some clients, I offer over-the-clothes therapeutic touch. The work I do is unique and has been adapted over several years from my training in SE Touch, SourcePoint, Feldenkrais, and my close study of human anatomy. SE Touch was developed as an offshoot of craniosacral and osteopathic modalities. It works with the muscles, bones, connective tissue and fluids in the body to affect change in the body structures.
The touch I offer is always with informed consent. Your safety is my first priority. Touch is always non-sexual.
The goals of touch work include:
- Directly regulating the nervous system
- Creating safety and working with attachment
- Aligning and balancing posture through fascia release
- Helping the client feel more embodied through gentle contact
Depending on the client’s unique needs, Rooted Bliss sessions may include no touch at all or include some touch, always accompanied by dialogue. And some sessions might take place with the client lying on a table while I offer touch work the entire time. Each session is tailored to the client’s preferences (which may change moment by moment and day to day).
