What is Sexological Bodywork?

SEXOLOGICAL BODYWORK is a new profession, which is officially certified in the USA, state of California. It offers somatic learning through experience, self-growth and healing through sexuality with the overlap into the other areas of life.

Sexological bodywork brings these benefits:

Somatic learning

Most of the people nowadays are busy with thinking and imaginations. We live in our expectations and worries, memories from the past and plans for the future.  This causes the disconnection from our body sensation which is the essence of our vitality and joy.  Sexological bodywork offers methods that lead to bringing our consciousness back to our body, improvement of its sensuality and therefore increase of the life energy, intuition, fulfillment and joy.

  • Deepening of the body sensation
  • Opening up of your life energy source
  • Growth of your vitality, love and joy
  • Improvement of the sexuality and the intimate life
  • Knowledge of the erotic massage
  • Abilities of bringing yourself into the widened and ecstatic states of mind
  • And many others….

One of the area that Sexological bodywork works with, is the arousal. The arousal that is free from imagination and fantasy, unresolved emotional experiences, religious dogma, society restrictions and routine sexual behavior.  Sexual arousal can induce the altered state of consciousness to anybody, who wants to try it. In this meditative state of mind, one recognizes his body to be the source of freedom and wisdom.  There are different ways how to reach the altered states of consciousness (states that can be reached by extended sexual arousal, meditations or other… ) and we need to learn how to work with them.  One another way how to induce this meditative, creative state is by active receiving of Taoist or sensual holistic –tantric massage.  Personal experience is deemed to be a very powerful and valuable tool for self-development. To help the others to find and use such states of altered consciousness induced by the extended sexual arousal, is the essence of the sexological bodywork.

Somatic healing

There is our memory stored in our body, this reaches back to our past. There are different things stored in it, these are more or less traumatic- stress, unpleasant giving the birth experience, surgery, abuse, rapes, but also even less traumatic events that we have already forgotten- on the conscious level. Often, however, these experiences are reflected in contemporary life and affect how we feel in different situations. Sometimes we are at our wits´ end and we do not know their origin. By conscious work with the body, we can release and dissolve these blocks and enter a new free sensation of our body filled with joy. Healing goes deeply and takes place on our subconscious level.

History of the sexological bodywork

The sexological bodywork as a profession was established by Joseph Kramer, Ph.D  in the USA at the turn of the millennium. His first Czech students were Denisa Palečková and Richard Vojík, who on the bases of Joseph Kramer´s wish, have been teaching this profession further. The first training for professionals has taken place in the Czech Republic in 2012. The fourth training will be held in 2015.
