Sexual Trauma Resolution Guide

Somatic therapy means working at the level of the nervous system to digest past experiences – the personal, ancestral, and collective imprints that are keeping you from feeling pleasure and belonging in your relationships with yourself, others and the earth.

Living life under a trauma spell can make you feel…


Disconnected from your body, sexuality and self-expression

That closeness, intimacy or belonging is out of reach

Like you're not good enough

That there's something wrong with you

Guilty or weird about masturbation or self pleasure

Sexually frustrated, blocked or shameful

Like you don't want to have sex at all

That there has to be something more


You can have a trauma response to many different types of experiences…


Growing up in a home where your needs weren't met

Living under capitalism, patriarchy and white supremacy.

Residue from things that happened to your parents and ancestors

Being shamed for your sexuality and self expression

Getting or feeling abandoned by family, partners or friends
