Sexological Bodywork is a unique and potentially transformational modality. It works by using your body as a direct tool for healing and learning.
With a large number of people experiencing difficulties in this potentially vulnerable and intimate area, it's important that services like this are available to provide information and support.
There is a wide range of reasons that people come to see me and other CSBs (Certified Sexological Bodyworkers). You could be experiencing pain, perhaps as a result of childbirth, trauma or surgery (for example prostate, breast, ovarian or testicular cancer treatments). Sometimes this comes with accompanying scar tissue that we can work on to restore elasticity and circulation. Alternatively you may have a lack of sensation or desire, or maybe your body just won't respond the way that you want it to. You may be after something faster, harder, slower, softer, more intense, less intense or simply just something new after 2, 10, 50 years of the same thing.
In our sessions, we'll use somatic practices to develop your physical and emotional awareness in a safe, non-judgmental environment. The experiential nature of the work allows a direct avenue for your mind, body and soul to heal and grow.

Rebecca is a qualified Sexological Bodyworker and Sex Educator, certified through the Institute of Somatic Sexology. Her challenges, explorations and moments of profound connection and joy in her own sexual journey, have led her to work with other individuals, partnerships and groups in their explorations.
Her vision is to create a culture where sex and sexuality are regarded as an integral aspect of each of us and honoured, respected and taught as such. By increasing our knowledge and understanding of our own sexuality, she believes we can better understand our emotional make-up and ourselves as a whole. This then flows into the types of relationships we create, the way we love and how we choose to direct our lives.
She has been an integral part of developing the professional standing of the profession, having spent 5 years as an SSEAA (Somatic Sex Educators Association of Australasia) committee member. The SSEAA is the association that provides governance and oversight to the field of Sexological Bodywork.
Rebecca is available for individual and partnered sessions. She also holds workshops, providing people the opportunity to gather together to learn with, and from, each other.
I loved loved loved the session you did with me! Highly recommended practitioner and modality!! (Somatic Therapy)
As a physical therapist who works at the capacity of seeing with 50 people a week, I know that every person is different, but I also think this qualifies me to make a valid commentary here.
My experience of Sexological Bodywork with Rebecca was beyond par in terms of her professionalism, her personalized empathetic approach and care, and also her skills in working with a person's body in the context of it representing the physical aspect of their entire being; of mind, body, and spirit. I came to trust and have faith in Rebecca's ability to meet me where I was at, and handle my personal sensitivities with intuitive care, genuine compassion and valuable insight.
What I gained from my Sexological Bodywork sessions with Rebecca were an appreciation for the amazing work that can be achieved within a nonjudgmental dynamic of trust and safety, and the value in being able to identify, firstly, my own needs and the personal meaning the parts of my body hold, and then secondly, developing the skills of active consent and personal agency, in being taught to advocate for my own needs and considerations. These have proven to be valuable and transferable life skills which have made me more confident in the outside world, as well as within myself.
Rebecca was able to meet and exceed my own goals in personal improvement in what I, as a health practitioner with over 20 years of experience, view as a scientifically valid and newly emerging field in psychosomatic integration.
I have great faith in recommending Rebecca Rose as a Sexological Bodyworker, and look forward to seeing this field take its place as a leader in the pursuits of personal embodiment, and in creating a nonjudgmental sex positive culture within our society that, given its the 21st Century, is direly in need of change. I'll end with an apt quote from Victor Hugo in that "There is nothing as powerful as an idea whose time has come".
