Note: Somatic Psychotherapy does not always involve touch, and touch can be used in many other psychotherapeutic disciplines
Somatic Psychotherapy operates from the premise that the organization of the body is the organization of the psyche. There are many disciplines of Somatic Psychotherapy, all of which have cohesive elements. Somatic practitioners believe in a continual feedback loop between mind and body and between feeling and expression.
Using touch in somatic psychotherapy, as well as in other modalities, is a matter of choice on the part of the clinician. Many psychotherapists are reluctant to use touch for fear of offending the client or attracting a lawsuit. Touch can be used effectively, ethically, and in a clinically effective manner. These issues are addressed in all of our somatics and touch courses.
