THE POWER OF

Touch

I am excited to share the PowerPoint presentation from my talk on “The Power of Touch” that I gave in german at the Uni Wien at the Sex-positive Conferance.

Reflecting on the experience, it was truly inspiring to delve into the transformative effect of touch and explore the benefits of methods like Sxocorporel and Sxological Bodywork.

During the talk, I discussed the significance of touch in sx-positive workshops and festivals, shedding light on its role in our often isolated society today.

As a sxual counselor, I highlighted how sxual counseling can serve as a bridge between individual professional support and personal discovery, fostering mindful communication, awakening of sxual energy, presence in the present moment, self-worth, and self-acceptance in a trauma-informed setting.

The talk emphasized the importance of touch and showcased its transformative nature, offering insights into its profound impact on our lives. A English translation will be available soon. 

 

What is

Sexological Bodywork

Sexological Bodywork invites you to explore your sexuality, release tension, and connect with your authentic desires through an embodied approach that combines touch & hands-on techniques, breathwork, and mindful awareness, in a safeR and supportive setting. Every session can but don’t have to involve touch. 

In my practice, I embrace the principles of Sexological Bodywork® to empower individuals, couples, and groups on their journey to self-discovery, erotic development, and enhanced embodiment. As I am the final phase of my training, I am providing sessions at a discounted rate. I’m in supervision until April at my Training institute ISB Berlin

As a bodyworker and intimacy coach, my mission is to guide individuals toward profound self-discovery, enriched erotic living, and a deeper connection with themselves and their partners.

Methods:

Bossy Massage / Empowered Touch: Inspired by Dr. Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent, this technique enables you to clearly define which part of your body you wish to be touched, how it’s touched, and for how long. It fosters transparent communication and empowers you to express your desires and boundaries.

Body Mapping Exploration: Develop a sensory map of your body through internal and external contact, deepening your connection and familiarity with every inch of your being. This method can be applied to your entire body.

 

Meditative Sensual Touch: Immerse yourself in a deliberate, unhurried experience of touch, including sensitive areas like genitals and anus, within a tranquil, meditative space. This practice enhances your sensitivity, presence, and overall sensory awareness.

Scar Tissue Rejuvenation: Employ a range of touch techniques to explore, soothe, and reawaken scar tissue across your body, with particular attention to areas like the chest and genitals.

And many more somatic methods…

 

Hands-On Sexual Education: This method involves practical exploration of anatomy and open dialogue to address questions and concerns. It offers a tactile, informative approach to understanding the human body, fostering knowledge, confidence, and informed choices in matters of sexuality.

Body Visualisations: We will create a secure environment where your body can narrate its stories, focusing on specific body parts or regions I will invite you to creatively visualize it. Share your emotions, reservations, and unspoken taboos to facilitate this transformative experience.

Who does a session look like:

Typically, a session begins with a short grounding in the body, engaging in a 15-30-minute counselling to determine the session’s topic, intention, and focus. Following this, I present three different methods tailored to your intention, allowing you to select which you’d like to explore. Next, there’s typically 1-1:30 hours of somatic exercises or touch on the massage bench, followed by 5 minutes of silent integration. Afterward, we spend 10-20 minutes discussing your experience and reflecting on what you’re taking away from today’s session.

 

As a bodyworker and intimacy coach, I guide my clients to turn their focus inwards, exploring the rich tapestry of sensations within their bodies. I believe in the holistic nature of the somatic experience, which encompasses not only the physical body but also our spirit, mind, emotions, and feelings. This includes delving into the wisdom held in their tissues, unlocking emotional releases, and deciphering the narratives stored in their nervous systems.

Important: Sexological Bodywork is not therapy but might support a Person’s growth. 

Tailored Support: Clients come to me with a wide range of needs, from desiring greater access to pleasure and heightened erotic experiences to seeking a more profound connection with themself or their partner’s touch. I’m here to assist with these unique wishes and challenges, to facilitate a broader understanding of erotic embodiment.

Client-Centered Approach: My approach centers around the client’s journey. Through the use of movement, breathwork, touch, sound, and awareness, I empower individuals to create meaningful change and explore the body and sensations. Together, we work to break free from limiting habits, release what no longer serves, reawaken the body’s sensitivity, and cultivate a more expansive, integrated erotic state.

Methods: My teachings encompass a diverse range of methods, including breathwork, foundational touch techniques, somatic learning, body and genital mapping, consent exploration, meditational touch, pelvic release bodywork, scar tissue remediation, and personalized selflove/ masturbation coaching.

Arousal Exploration: Through ‘one-way touch,’ we explore arousal and embodied pleasure without societal pressures and constraints. This meditative state allows clients to recognize their bodies as sources of wisdom, freedom, and belonging, providing a safe and inspiring space for continuous growth and evolution.

Ethical Standards: I strictly adhere to a Code of Ethics, ensuring that sessions are client-directed, genital touch is one-way with the use of gloves, professional boundaries are maintained, and I remain always clothed during sessions.

I support the notion that sexual health, erotic education, and pleasure are fundamental human rights and vital components of overall wellbeing.
