Repairing itself is the body’s full time job
It does this more efficiently when we understand how we can support its work. The term ‘body-mind” refers to the intelligence in every cell in the body – not just the brain. Information about what happened to us is stored through out the body and communicated to us in “body-language”. The body usually has messages for us. When people learn how to check for messages, the body doesn’t need to shout, and often reduces the intensity of its distress signals.
Trauma Touch Therapy™ is body-centered work that helps people learn to access information from their body
TTT™ is a necessary adjunct to talk therapy
Most of the traumatic or overwhelming experience is sensory, so checking in with the body helps people directly address their body’s needs, and find the words to talk about their experience.
TTT™ creates safe space
• to communicate with the body
• to suspend judging messages
• to explore safe touch
• to let discomfort lead the way out
• to experiment with joy and pleasure
