Karen Bauman, MA, NMT, SEP, OIX
Karen spent 10 years teaching academic reading, writing, and critical thinking for international students in American universities. But her true love was to find integrative approaches to facilitate the experience of feeling more fully alive. Since 2004, her training included various therapeutic bodywork modalities and mindfulness practices, and then expanded to include Somatic Experiencing®, Touch Skills for Trauma Therapists, NeuroAffective Touch™, and now Organic Intelligence®. She has also trained in expanding erotic intelligence and facilitating sexual wholeness.
Karen maintains a private practice in Orange County, California, working primarily with adults. She specializes in working with the dysregulated nervous system patterns underlying chronic pain and other syndromes. She collaborates extensively with mental health professionals, providing touch therapy for their clients with a history of early dysregulation. She also has a passion for supporting people who want to develop their capacity for healthy love and sexuality.
