‘Safe Touch’ Treatments

safe touch treatment

“Safe touch” is a trauma-informed approach to massage therapy.  It is designed to work with people who are seeking to change their relationship with touch, learn to connect with their body, or who require therapeutic massage treatment but need a very safe context for that to occcur in.  The primary focus is on creating safety and boundaries, building trust, and ensuring consent in order to empower clients in their own body awareness and sensation. The massage component is mindfully negotiated between therapist and client to build on empowerment while receiving touch in a safe environment.

An initial fifteen minute phone consult is often helpul to assess appropriateness of this treatment for each individual person. Psychologist, psychotherapist, and counsellor referrals are welcome.
