Sexological Bodyworkers are Somatic Sex Educators assisting individuals and couples to deepen their experience of embodiment. We work directly with the body -- skin, tissue, emotions, thoughts, and feelings -- to help individuals reach ecstatic states of arousal. Sexological Bodyworkers are trained to touch genitals to help their clients understand anatomy and physiology, arousal, and pleasure.
Sexological Bodywork can help clients release chronically held tension in their pelvic floor, heal from sexual trauma, and feel free, confident and empowered in their bodies.

Sexological Bodyworkers teach skills to help nurture and deepen one's experience of their own sensual and sexual self. That work can include breath work, conscious communication, guided visualizations and meditations, boundary setting skills, naming desires or asking for what you want, movement, voice enhancing practice, sensate focus, anatomy, erotic trance or other body-based sex skills.
Sexological Bodyworkers are also trained to reduce scar tissue mass through Scar Tissue Remediation.
When the skin is opened, as a result of trauma (car accident, assault, childbirth, surgery), scar tissue grows to heal and protect that space. As the scar tissue grows and expands over the course of a lifetime, the body can become contorted or restricted in some way, resulting in the loss of sensation or mobility. Scar Tissue Remediation deliberately brings attention, warmth, and touch to the scared area to dissolve the web of tissues, creating an opening for more movement, sensation, and freedom in the body.
Just like you have "muscle memory" as a result of years of tying your shoes or playing an instrument, your scar tissues can hold the memory of trauma and grief. Intentional touch generates an opportunity for your body to release tension, fear, or other emotions related to the trauma, relieving you of long-held, heavy stress.
Sexological Bodywork is NOT about cultivating a deep interpersonal intimacy between practitioner and client. It does NOT entail mutual touch or instant gratification. This modality merges science and sensuality so the client can understand their body's capacity for pleasure, power, and healing.
