As science helps us understand more about the capacity of the body’s tissues to store memory, the profound release that countless manual therapists have witnessed in their clients become validated.
The delicate tissues of our genitals are particularly innervated and especially sensitive to storing memory, both physical and emotional.
Even if these memories are not at the forefront of our minds, they remain in our bodies, holding the resonance of obvious trauma, such as sexual abuse, circumcision or childbirth, as well as less apparent dissonance, such as genital or sexual shame, or unconscious sexual encounters.
But very few people have the opportunity to receive a sensitive genital massage with no sexual agenda, that focuses exclusively on the experience of the receiver, rather than the giver.
Gentle Genital Trauma Release (GGTR) is a healing modality that sexologist Laura-Doe has developed over the past decade drawing on a range of techniques, including:
• Sexological Bodywork
• Somatic Sexology
• Body Harmony
• Shamanic practices
• Genital reflexology
• Trauma Release Exercises (TRE)
It’s benefits include:
• Increased genital sensation
• Release of held tension
• Letting go of old body memory
• Release of stored emotion
• More sexual pleasure
• Deeper connection with our sexual essence
This workshop is designed for therapists, bodyworkers and healers already working with sexuality or couples with prior tantric &/or personal development work, who would like to understand the possibilities of this style of healing.
yOniversity founder and international sexologist, Laura-Doe will introduce you to the philosophy and the science behind the process, the range of techniques used, and guide you through the steps of an initial GGTR session.
You will have the opportunity to practice in pairs or to give yourself a session if this is preferable to you.
Laura-Doe has been working, presenting and researching in the field of sexuality for over 25 years and is passionate about restoring the huge untapped potential for sexual pleasure to the world. She does this with grace, wisdom, humour and intelligence.
This will be a workshop combining theoretical knowledge with practical experience, so come prepared to be in a space in which there will be a relaxed, yet respectful, attitude towards nudity.
Couples are welcome to practice together. If you chose to practice with another participant you need to be comfortable with genital touch, know how to communicate your needs and boundaries and have prior experience of personal development, therapy and/or sacred sexuality.
We will speak to all participants prior to registration to ensure this workshop is suitable for you.
