Trauma Touch Therapy™

Colorado School of Healing Arts Externship

An integrative and collaborative approach to healing trauma

Trauma Touch Therapy™ (TTT) is a bodywork modality that is designed to meet the needs of people with trauma histories. It is a simple yet profound, body based, integrative approach to healing trauma, unprocessed emotions or the stress that lingers in the body. It utilizes the wisdom of the body, social engagement, curiosity, movement, breath, touch and self-empowerment.

TTT is a collaborative approach to healing trauma and each session is as unique as an individual’s set of personal circumstances.

We will meet weekly for ten weeks, for 90-minute sessions.

If interested, please book a virtual chemistry call so we may meet. I can share more about the process, answer your questions and learn more about your needs, goals and concerns.

Reduced payment options are available.

Integrative Bodywork & Massage

Our all-inclusive, integrative and present-moment approach to massage & bodywork means, you do not have to select one modality (e.g. Swedish, Thai, Cupping, Yoga Therapy, etc.) when you book your appointment.

We check-in with your body, when you arrive for your session and depending on what is present for you physically, mentally- emotionally etc., we proceed from there.

Thank you for helping me see yoga as more than a workout. 🙂 I feel like I can take these tools and feelings into my daily life.

Patty was excellent! I would highly recommend her. She was very professional and really helped me find some trouble spots and how to help improve them.

Touch, Massage, & Bodywork

I had a very nice time with Patty. We caught up while destroying trigger points that line my scapula. She was super in tune with my needs and promoted healthy breath and relaxation. 10/10 ♥

Touch, Massage, & Bodywork

When I first started practicing yoga, my body was very stiff and achy. With practice, I am gaining flexibility and I don’t fell stiff and heavy.

Patty was excellent for my first professional massage. I felt tension release and lengthened muscle.

Very well done. Will be back for more. Loved it!

Patty has some powerhouse hands. She did fantastic with her pressure and she had a relaxing flow. I highly recommend this wonderful therapist.

It was a great class that teaches you the true meaning and beauty of yoga. It helps not only your physical journey, but also the journey of ones self.

Amazing. So many techniques I've never had before, that helped a lot. Stretching really helped lower back 🙂
