. Trauma Touch Therapy(TM)
Trauma Touch Therapy(TM), developed at The Colorado School of Healing Arts in Lakewood, CO, is an integrative therapy that facilitates healing by accompanying clients to move slowly toward being more and more present. A client-directed therapy, Trauma Touch TherapyTM utilizes breathing and gentle touch to help clients become more comfortable in their bodies. Clients commit to eleven, ninety minute sessions. A detailed intake occurs during the first session and all subsequent sessions are client-directed bodywork. Clients practice determining and keeping boundaries, self-care, and good breathing techniques.
Trauma Touch Therapy(TM) is ideal for people who are affected by having experienced trauma in their lives and are at a place in their recovery where they are ready for bodywork. These clients must currently be involved in some type of psychotherapy. For more information, please contact Jennifer Herfurth Ristine at 484-213-8239 or email@example.com
