Trauma Informed Somatic Intelligence
for RMT’S & Manual Clinicians

Course Description:

A remarkable opportunity to learn how to embody your nervous system in a new way in an intimate, experiential class immersive.  This 70 hour continuing education course is designed for massage therapists and manual clinicians to bring a trauma informed lens to their practice and give them the practical somatic skills to integrate that this understanding into their work.

You will gain an understanding of the physiology and the neuro-psychology of self regulation and the effects of trauma on these systems.

You will learn to recognize symptoms of trauma, and how to use that understanding to create safer and more effective treatments with your clients.

This course offers a strong experiential component to develop the essential and practical skill of accessing right brain to right brain communication with others from a felt sense of yourself.

This somatic intelligence is a skill that will set you apart as a therapist who deeply understands the experience of the nervous system and can work safely within a trauma informed framework in a compassionate and effective way.

    This training is the missing piece I was looking for to bring into my practice. The tools I've learnt so far are invaluable for working therapeutically with people and have also given me resources to apply to my own life, professionally and personally. This work is where the true healing happens.

  • Julie Roberts RMT
    I am so thankful that I took the TISI program, it has upgraded not only my ability to support clients in facilitating mindbody healing, but also support my own growth and healing. It was exactly what I was looking for in an introductory, trauma informed somatic based program. Ginger and Julie are wonderful instructors that provide a unique and authentic experience in class. I look forward to the next TISI programs and continuing my learning with them.

    I really enjoyed the process and flow of the program, I felt supported and that you and Julie were very supportive. Love the the small class size and felt safe speaking in class. Doing Tai Chi in the morning, sitting in circle, as well as work in dyads were some highlights that made it unique and integrative. The binder and lectures were very helpful to explain the concepts.

  • I'm so happy that I learned this, that I can do this, that I can practice this!!
  • Lana Blain
    Ginger Joy taught me how to feel into what people were feeling, and to feel it in my own body. I knew that this was a thing we people can do but I never did it personally because I felt like it could stay with me. Now I know this is a tool I can use to connect with my clients and then release it. I was able to practice this with my clients and it was amazing!
