Sensory-Motor Manual Therapy is a unique new treatment method specifically for trauma, complex pain and injury issues to relieve pain and restore health. These methods were developed by a Physical Therapist, and traumatic stress and injury specialist who studied treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Rachel Katz, PT,SEP trained as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner under Dr. Peter Levine who is internationally recognized for his pioneering and successful work treating traumatic stress. Rachel Katz has adapted psychological and dialogue based treatment into a readily learned approach for bodywork therapists who utilize touch in their therapy practices. These methods provide powerful access to deep brain pathways but are easy on your hands. Learn the background for the method which is called Sensory-Motor Manual Therapy in this introductory lecture filmed at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in February of 2011.
