Sexual Trauma Resolution Guide

Somatic practice involves 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.

Some clues that you may be living life under a trauma spell…


Feeling disconnected from your body, sensuality and self-expression

Closeness and intimacy feel challenging or out of reach

Guilt, weirdness or confusion show up around the topics of sex and self-pleasure

A sense of tiredness, dullness or heaviness that impedes arousal

Finding boundaries to be a struggle

Lacking clarity around your desires in the bedroom and beyond

Feeling like 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 were not met

Living under capitalism, patriarchy and white supremacy

Residue from things that happened to your parents and ancestors
