Unlike some conscious sexuality traditions that can reinforce the gender binary in a cisnormative way, Sexological Bodywork is trans*-friendly. The focus is very much on erotic embodiment (experiencing being in the body, in the present moment) and personal exploration, whatever gender identity or genital configuration a person has.
Sexological Bodywork practices that can be supportive in transition, or in the process of living gender-variant and non-binary identities, include:
- Somatic practice – to learn/re-learn to consciously inhabit the body, where there has been dysphoria or discomfort
- Mapping – of the whole body, of sensation, of pleasure, especially after medical or surgical interventions that have caused changes to the lived experience of the body
- Scar tissue remediation – fibrous scar tissue can be softened over time by touch techniques with organic castor oil and the use of castor oil packs
- Hawaiian-style conscious touch – just because it’s luscious and can feel integrating and nourishing!
I personally identify as queer and non-binary, and this lens shapes my work and my interest in utilising Sexological Bodywork practices to support people on the trans* spectrum.
I offer a limited number of concessionary sessions for bodywork. If you do not have the means to pay full price but feel you would really benefit from Sexological Bodywork, please do get in touch to discuss.
