What is Sexological Bodywork™
"Our greatest human freedom is choosing where to place our attention. If we don’t choose, someone else will.”
Joseph Kramer, PhD
Founder of Sexological Bodywork
Certified practitioners support individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own erotic development, learn about their bodies, sex and sexuality, and/or work through sexual issues or concerns.
Since most of us have little experience navigating between peak reactions of our nervous system, sexological bodywork assist others in self-regulation by creating awareness of their breathing patterns. Through embodied exercises we support the creation of new neural pathways which, with practice, support our capacity to experience more of our bodies sensations and allow the possibility of feeling pleasure within ourselves outside of our cultural conditioning. That gives us confidence, agency and choice in decision-making with our bodies.
For many people, the only context for intimate touch and discussion has been within a relationship or partner engagement. This is understandable - and there are other contexts; one of which is education and curiosity. In Sexological Bodywork sessions, practitioners work outside of attraction or dis-attraction i.e. partner engagement is set to one side in the service of learning. As a sexological bodyworker I support people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, characteristics, or expressions.
