The Use of Touch

Sometimes touch can be incorporated as an additional therapy tool.  Depending on the comfort and safety of the client, touch can bring great support or it can be threatening.  When client and therapist agree it would be helpful, the client lies fully clothed on a massage table.  Non-sexual touch can provide an experience of connection that can help build trust like nothing else.  It can highlight boundaries, and it often can create a missing feeling of support.  It can guide awareness, breath and energy into numb areas.
