Acclimation to Safe Touch

Many people have difficulty being touched due to trauma history or sensory issues.

The effects of this difficulty can be far-reaching, as touch is necessary for proper development of the nervous system from the time we are born, and continues to impact our sense of self-awareness and attunement to our own bodies, as well as connection in relationship to others and sense of belonging in community and life.

MC is experienced in helping people to overcome these difficulties by working within clients’ acceptable limits, and gradually finding the means to greater comfort. This may mean starting out with no touch, or staying only within certain safe areas as defined by the client.

If this is an issue which you would like to explore further, please call to discuss a plan which would be most helpful and appropriate for you.

"MC has a calming, gentle presence. She is thorough with the body work and thoroughly generous with her healing ability. I went to MC with tension in my neck and shoulders and pain in my lower back. I felt great relief after one session with her, and look forward to continuing our work to heal my body."
