My name is Julia Pessis and I am a Certified Sexological Bodyworker.This is the most fulfilling work I have ever done. I meet people in their uniqueness, regardless of sexuality, gender, age, relationship status, or physical expression. I support them to reconnect with their own unique body, to discover what has been held in it, to reclaim the self as a sexual being, as well as unfold layers of cultural conditionings, shame and guilt.
I am trained in Scar Tissue Remediation to help people navigate the post-birth process with far less suffering and more support after birth injuries, gynaecological surgeries such as colposcopies and hysterectomies, endometriosis, gender reassignment surgeries and pelvic pain of all kinds, as well as scars after breast cancer surgeries so help bring back lost sensations.
Previous to Sexbod, I practised Fasciatherapy based on the Danis Bois methodology, which was my starting point to reconnect with
my own body. This method combines soft tissue manual treatment, body movement and perceptual education. It is a tool that has been of much use in my sexbod practice, working with scar tissue remediation and genital touch.
I live and work in Sintra Portugal. I am also available for coaching sessions online via skype or zoom. I am fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
I am an experiencial Educator and I worked for many years facilitating group processes involving team building and leadership program. I hold a BA. in Visual Arts and professional certificates in Sexological Bodywork™ by the Institute of Somatic Sexology, Tantra Therapy & Healing, Massage & Bodywork from the European Association of Tantra Professionals. I did Like a Pro with Betty Martin and I work with the Wheel of Consent in my practise.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Grata pelo espaço seguro que criaste com a tua presença e conhecimento, onde me senti totalmente acolhida e amada. A partilha despertou sem dúvida para aspectos e partes de mim que não considerava ou negava e guiou-me na sua re-descoberta, no sentido de me conectar mais profundamente com o todo que sou e os seus potenciais.
Tenho notado que procuro mais o toque do corpo (não necessariamente zonas erógenas) e que no geral está mais activo e vibrante. Ao nível do espírito sinto leveza e clareza."
"Grateful for the safe space you have created with your presence and knowledge, where I felt totally welcomed and loved. The sharing undoubtedly awakened aspects and parts of me that I did not consider or that I deny them and it guided me in its re-discovery, in the sense of connecting deeper with the my wholeness and its potentials.
I have noticed that I am looking to touch more my body (not necessarily erogenous zones) and that in general feels more active and vibrant. At the spiritual level I feel lightness and clarity. "
