Somatic Arts offers an amazing way to create breakthroughs with your clients. Many of your clients will be practitioners of yoga or participate in other body-based activities, showing a general curiosity about embodied practices.

By bridging the gap between mind and body for your clients, you will give them a holistic way of experiencing sex and sensuality.

Sex is more than just a physical experience, but body awareness is an important aspect of sexual wellness. How can you help your clients understand their sexual concerns not only from the neck up but also from the neck down?

This course offers training for you to combine your current ("neck up") skills with somatic or embodiment practitioner ("neck down") tools and techniques. These teachings will give you expanded ways to help your clients gain healthy body/mind integration.

You will learn the expanded triadic model as well as the expanded sexual response cycle. Additionally, you will be able to distinguish and refer to bodywork practitioners related to sensuality and sexuality, such as: cuddle therapists, mindfulness trainers, sacred intimates, sexological bodyworkers, massage, reiki, shiatsu or tantra practitioners.

These expanded models will guide you on how to teach your clients the value of including a healthy relationship with their bodies in their personal lives as well as their relationships.

This course will illuminate places where your clinical work can get stuck and tools to move your clients forward.

Many of your clients are exploring embodied practices like yoga or sports, but they may not see the very real connection of these practices to their sex lives. You can help them bridge that gap.

In order to have healthy, well-rounded clients, you have to be willing to move from a neck-up approach to one that incorporates neck-down healing practices. This shift will ensure that your clients are connected in mind and body.

If this sounds like challenging and exciting work, then sign up now for Somatic Arts!
