I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my recently announced Neuroscience of Touch seminar (running across the country, in Morecambe, London, Exeter, Birmingham & Glasgow) so below you’ll find further details – if you’ve still got questions, do get in touch or to get booked in, click here. Hope to see you there! Gerry
WHO IS THIS DAY USEFUL FOR?
If you work with touch or with traumatised clients then this day will enable you to see the role that psychologically informed touch can provide in your work.
If you already do Massage or Bodywork, this day explains just how touch affects the brain of our clients and how this can help us to understand so many of our clents’ different reactions.It will also give you the tools to deal with any ‘live’ psychological trauma reactions your clients may have to touch.
If you do not currently use touch in your work, then this day will give you new insights into the new role that simple and safe touch can play in the treatment of traumatised clients. You will learn the tools to remove traumatic triggers from your clients in less than 7 minutes.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF TOUCH + THE WINDOW OF TOLERANCE
Identifies the 16 different psychological positions of both receiving and giving touch and what they can tell us about early unremembered traumas. In this session we will also look at the concept of ’The Window of Tolerance’ and how this can help us to understand the many different reactions that clients can have to our work.
Practical application: using model (on self and clients) to make touch safe
Following a demonstration, you will practice the touch and mental focus techniques used to remove traumas ( applying theory of sessions 1&2).
