The LOTUS Method – Hands-on Healing for Women
This bodywork modality is meant to be accompanied by The LOTUS Method worksheet and adds the benefit of learning new methods of embodied empowerment, relaxation, self-care, and healing to the process of growth.
I believe that hands-on healing is one of the best modalities for working with trauma, body image, stress reduction and burnout. As a CMT with 20 years of experience working with women in a healing capacity, I offer somatic therapies that address a variety of issues related to holistic female sexuality.
My bodywork modality is non-sexual and promotes whole body healing. Past traumas can remain in our systems and manifest as a myriad of physical issues that also affect a woman’s sexual health and experience of her body and it is my belief that non-sexual, therapeutic bodywork can assist in the body’s natural healing process. I use a trauma-informed model of gentle healing touch to address consent and boundaries, healthy communication of what feels good and what doesn’t, a safe space for emotional release and a way to reduce stress and feel good in your body again.
. I work with women in all stages of life including pregnancy, post-partum, new mamas, women going through peri-menopause, and women in menopause or post-menopause.
Note about therapeutic somatic therapy vs. sexological bodywork:
The work I do with women is all therapeutic and there is no sexological bodywork component. For some women, they may want a sexological healing modality and I am always happy to refer out to one of my esteemed colleagues in that field. I also refer to physical therapists who work with pelvic floor pain if that is a modality that may be needed for you.Please feel free to ask me any questions to clarify.
