This 2-day workshop (16 CE) helps massage professionals gain clarity between stress, trauma, and PTSD/PTSI. It provides an in-depth look into the power of a ‘healthy touch’ and its impact on trauma survivors. Participants will learn to anticipate and treat triggers of PTSD episodes, understand their role and scope of practice in the healing process, and get hands-on time with the techniques in instructor-monitored sessions. The lecture will discuss clinical Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) taken from the DSM-V and how it shows up on a massage table and in life. Attendees will explore how a ‘healthy touch’ can facilitate change in the client’s tissues, empower the client to be part of the healing process and grow their understanding of listening, assessing, and treating stress and PTSD. This workshop provides a fully-clothed, trauma-informed, patient-centered approach to treating trauma/PTSD/PTSI through healthy-touch bodywork.
