Trauma Talks Podcast

Trauma, Safe Touch and Massage Therapy

This past June I was accepted to present at Toronto’s bi-annual Trauma Talks Conference. My presentation regarding using massage therapy as a way of re-introducing safe touch to people with trauma histories was very well received. It led to an invitation to be a guest speaker for the University of Buffalo’s Trauma and Social Work podcast Trauma Talks: Rising from the Ashes. This podcast highlights survivor’s stories of trauma and health practitioners approaches to trauma-informed care. I am proud to say that I was their first massage therapist to speak to a trauma-informed approach in massage therapy. Here is the link (scroll down to Interview with Providers).
