Combining interpersonal neurobiology with massage skills, anatomical knowledge, and practices to empower choice and voice, you will be able to guide clients in using the most effective tools for liberating themselves from the ongoing effects of sexual trauma, neglect, limiting beliefs and sexual dysfunctions. You will see them expand into the full range of their sexual wellness, guiding them to self-love, community connection and vibrant erotic relationships.
