Working with Trauma for Bodyworkers Workshop


“Working with Trauma for Bodyworkers” is a 7 hours long live recording of a 2-day foundation workshop led by Ralf Marzen from Embodied Trauma Healing. Within the workshop an audience of experienced tantric massage bodyworkers asked questions relevant to their work, which then were answered by Ralf. It is a great, in depth and yet easy to understand explanation of tra­uma, its causes and effects and some safe ways of facilitating its release. This video will give you valuable insight and potentially a different perspective when it comes to working with clients with trauma. It is a must watch for therapists who are beginners as well as advanced practitioners offering tantric bodywork, sexological bodywork or any other somatic therapy.
