uncomfortable with touch
Touch is one of our 5 dominant human senses and
is necessary for physical survival and mental health.
But unfortunately, many of us suffer from some level of anxiety and fear
of touching or being touched by others.
If you are uncomfortable with touch and intimacy

Hesitancy to connect through touch most always carries over to have negative effects
in, not only your romantic relationships, but also in
your career, mental health, energy levels, and daily life.
Touch therapy, is most often, but not always, effectively combined with counseling sessions.
This form of hands on therapy is beneficial for those who have an aversion to touch (don't like to be touched)
or who have trouble with giving and receiving physical affection and intimacy.
Each individual treatment plan and session is geared towards the individual client's
needs, and level of comfort. There is a hands on and talk therapy component to each session.
Touch therapy is best when utilized as a therapeutic program.
Programs are made up of treatment intervals,
each having eight 45min-1hr sessions conducted on a weekly basis.
As sessions progress, clients explore their boundaries and fears associated with being close to others.

Cognitive Touch Therapy
counseling through massage
Counseling is not an easy concept for most of us who have never been,
or who are unfamiliar with how and why it works.
It can be understandably overwhelming to have to sit and share
your inner most thoughts & feelings, and private matters with a stranger.
This is where Cognitive Touch Therapy comes to the rescue.
Dr. Nekia combines systematic touch with talk therapy
to achieve an integrative approach to counseling sessions.
Specific and sequential touch timed throughout sessions helps clients to
relax & recall important memories, events, thoughts, and emotions.
Anxiety and fear associated with the conscious mind is one of the biggest stumbling blocks
to success through counseling; but it has been found that the more relaxed the client feels
is the more your mind will allow you to feel safe
which translates into you knowing that it is ok receive direction,
and talk through your problems.
*the more you talk is the more effective counseling will be for you*
Sessions are performed fully clothed
and the "massage" portion is accompanied by
Binaural Entrainment, Isochronic Tones, or Solfeggio Resonance.
These scientific tones and music can be very relaxing,
and is a form of sound therapy that allows for your brain to quiet your mind
for effective therapy.
This is the preferred method without clients having to undergo hypnosis.
