Somatic Sexuality Professionals

Friday, June 5, 5:45 – 6:45 pm CDT

Come join us for the first Somatic Sexuality Practitioners Happy Hour from the comfort of your own home! Growing awareness of somatic treatments has led us to recognize the importance of including professionals who utilize touch-based tools as a part of a broader, holistic therapeutic process.  Come meet practitioners from variety of somatic modalities and learn more about the different types of work that they do, network, and discuss how to collaborate with touch practitioners. All are welcome at this event!
