How do we, as touch practitioners, become an anchor of safety when our clients are unreceptive to best practice interventions?
Polyvagal Theory explains the crucial role the autonomic nervous system plays in the process of recovery, restoration, and healing. Adaptive survival states in our clients can greatly impact our therapeutic effectiveness.
We are delighted to have Craniosacral therapist and teacher Tove Borgendale for a three-part course this coming March. During this course, you will learn how to transfer receptive responses to touch and help your clients move from survival states to an experience of safety. You will create your personal touch map, discover a foundational language for creating safety and learn how to navigate moments of rupture.
