Somatic Healing: Therapeutic Touch for Healing Trauma
STP Founder/Clinician Maira Holzmann was invited to share her expertise on trauma as part of an online workshop through Healing Justice London. In her session, Maira “shares a basic understanding of trauma; how it embeds itself in the body; and how relationships, communities and systems contribute to a lack of safety in a person’s nervous system.”

Somatic Experiencing & Sexual Trauma Recovery
From the Healing Justice London website: This workshop, held in collaboration with The Breathe Network, explores how trauma lands in the body and how we can use somatic experiencing to support survivors’ healing. Molly Boeder Harris and Maira Holzmann introduce the concepts of somatic experiencing (SE) and co-regulating touch, offering somatic practices for down regulation that we can incorporate into our healing.
Focusing on the unique somatic imprints of shame that many survivors experience as a result of how trauma physiology and social norms interact, this workshop considers practices that support survivors in cultivating appreciation for their body’s innate responses to overwhelm, building capacity to hold the intensity of how our body remembers, and bolstering our resources for safer explorations of our own embodiment.
