WHAT IS A SEXOLOGICAL BODYWORKER?
Somatic means "of the body" or "the body as experienced from within". Sexological Bodyworkers are somatic sex educators, supporting individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own erotic development, learn about their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns.
Our teaching involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breath work, touch, Taoist Bodywork, pelvic release bodywork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching.
One of the somatic realms that Sexological Bodyworkers introduce to our students is a state of arousal that is free of fantasy, unfinished emotional business, religious dogma, cultural caveats and habitual sexual behaviors. In this meditative state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom and freedom. One of the ways to access this fecund state is by actively receiving Taoist Bodywork. Helping others access and make use of a variety of erotic states is foundational to the education we offer.
The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork program trains and certifies somatic sex educators. Sexological Bodyworkers are certified sexologists who focus on education. The UK training uses the the Australian curriculum, which both includes and expands upon the original California-approved course of studies.
Upon completion of all requirements, students are awarded the Certificate in Sexological Bodywork (CSB) or in the second year training, the Certificate in Somatic Sexual Education (CSSE) by the Sea School of Embodiment.
Graduates from this professional training can become members of The Association of Certified Sexological Bodyworkers (ACSB) and Somatic Sex Educators’ Association of Australasia (SSEAA) and apply to join the UK-based Association of Somatic and Integrative Sexologists (ASIS).
The Certificate in Sexological Bodywork professional training is for people of all sexual orientation, gender identity, characteristics, or expression.
Sexological Bodyworkers believe that sexual health and erotic education are basic human rights.
