In a BBTRS session, the practitioner will offer conscious touch in a variety of situations using an assortment of techniques, approaches and appropriate levels of pressure.
We use conscious activating touch to stimulate the breath during a collapse response in the charging stage of the session. The touch brings immediate awareness to a particular physical location of the body and automatically encourages the breath to enter and expand.
During the discharge stage, it is used with intention to stimulate, provoke or trigger gentle, releasing cathartic movements. It also brings awareness to the felt sense experience of specific points or areas which are holding the trauma within the focused belt of tension.
Conscious compassionate touch is utilized to bring support & care to the client while encouraging the feeling of trust during the resource stage of a session. It can also be gently incorporated into the final part of the integration stage when reconnecting with the client.
