COURSE DESCRIPTION

Touch, the language of the body, can reach the deepest layers of our clients’ wounding and healing. Verbal psychotherapy can feel limited to clients, especially those who continue to suffer with significant challenges to their emotional, mental, and physical health. Safe, embodied touch allows us to bring healing to the physiology of attachment, character, developmental trauma, and many other aspects of our clients’ experience that we cannot reach with talk therapy alone. This training will be rooted in the foundational elements, practiced in RSH Module 1.
