The Thinking Practitioner

43: Trauma, MDMA Psychotherapy, and the Body (with Marcela Ot’alora G.)

July 14, 2021

Til Luchau talks about trauma, psychedelic psychotherapy, and the body, with Marcela Ot'alora G., the principal investigator in a very promising FDA-approved study into MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD.

Topics include: 

  • How does trauma relate to bodywork, and how does MDMA therapy help with trauma?
  • How is psychedelic therapy different from just taking psychedelics?
  • What can we learn from your MDMA/PTSD study that can help us be more effective as massage and manual therapy practitioners?
