Covid-19’s arrival has disrupted one of the ways that we touch our clients, that is, physically with our hands. This loss of physical contact creates tremendous anxiety because gentle, caring touch is the bedrock of safety. It allows for and promulgates the release of oxytocin which is a critical hormone that ameliorates sensations of feeling unsafe.

In response to this loss, we turned to the myriad of other ways we could still provide touch for our clients in order to bridge the isolation that sheltering at home was creating. We are now doing virtual sessions across the globe and have come to the recognition that virtual touch is an efficient and effective way to heal during Covid times and even when Covid becomes a distant memory. Possibilities abound!

Presenter Bio
Joe Weldon- Co-Director, Licensed Psychologist, Master Somatic Therapist

Unable to walk until the age of five imbued in me a deep respect and regard for the traumatic experience of the loss of movement. In a Somatic Therapy session, I will help you differentiate your essence from the injuries that have happened to you. This will help you restore movements to your being that are necessary for you to live a life with ease, joy, and meaning. When full and free movement is restored then love becomes visible and viable. Come for a session and restore the lost, taken away, and forgotten movement that is your natural birthright.

Thousands of clients seeking to restore movement to their bodies and transform their lives are now moving about more freely and easily because of the gentle transformative touch I have skillfully provided them. Hundreds more have learned the fine art and skill of Transformative Touch in our one-of-a-kind somatic therapy training.
