Receiving new experiences of Touch is an essential part of our process of recovery from sexual trauma.
To rewire our experience of touch being something that need not create pain or fear or be of an agenda … but a caress that is kind, gentle, nourishing … that not only listens to but deeply honours our fears and boundaries.
Gently our body softens as it is held … releasing its frozen fear and all that it has created to isolate and protect itself.
Enabling us to have what we deeply desire yet have always pushed and held away.
Michelle shares a little with us of the value of integrating Touch to support the process of coming home to our bodies in the recovery of sexual abuse and body trauma.
