Healers on the Edge is the first anthology to introduce and explain somatic sex education, a trauma- informed touch
modality that uses the innate wisdom of the body to help heal physical, emotional, and psychological wounds and expand pleasure. Coming together from a variety of backgrounds, the authors present an array of examples and applications: from scar tissue remediation to gender identity explorations, from sexual problems and dysfunctions to the treatment of chronic trauma and neglect.
“Somatic sex education is…at the frontlines of the dominant culture’s war against life. There, it is positioned to assist us in reclaiming our voices and power, by guiding us back into the fullness of our – momentarily domesticated – erotic embodiment and intelligent wild wholeness.” Christiane Pelmas, in Healers on the Edge
