In this session, Maira Holzmann shares a basic understanding of trauma; how it embeds itself in the body; and how relationships, communities and systems contribute to a lack of safety in a person’s nervous system. Maira explores the power of somatic healing, nervous system regulation, and the practice of Therapeutic Touch.

Somatic Healing: Therapeutic Touch for Healing Trauma was originally held as an online workshop in June 2022. The session was recorded and is offered here as an open-access resource with BSL interpretation by Sumayya Si-Tayeb.
