What the media is saying about BTTB

Pamela Madsen is an erotic genius who has created a six-day communal immersion process where women learn to integrate sexual arousal into all parts of their bodies and lives. Along with her extraordinary team; through group and solo practices and receiving daily sensuous bodywork, participants unleash a remarkable state of sustained sexual arousal. And then are coached in ways to use that state. Back to The Body is the Master Class of my dreams. I wish I had a vulva.
— Joseph Kramer Ph.D., co-creator of Sexological Bodywork and the Body Electric School
A good one [retreat] can jump-start your healing because it’s very intense and concentrated, as opposed to going to a therapist once a week, where you kind of take a few steps back each time.
— Dr. Laura Berman, Ph.D., L.C.S.W. and author of Quantum Love
Up until very recently, hands-on sexual healing has been cloaked in secrecy, shame, and misunderstanding. But a bold new group of courageous pioneers such as Pamela Madsen is leading the way toward a deeper, richer understanding of women’s sexual pleasure as a force for health and healing that positively affects all areas of their lives. The new feminism includes embracing our erotic power, and hands on sexual healing in the right setting can be a very effective way to accomplish this.
— Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

Bttb in the media

Back to the Body is a sexual wellness immersion experience for women who are ready to create real change in their lives. Back to the Body puts an emphasis on hands-on full body healing and sensual touch, expanding their pleasure potential and releasing trauma. Transformation is nearly impossible through only one session or even once-a-week sessions, without the complete immersion experience. That is at Back to the Body, women are whisked away to exotic environments that drench their senses and why they each receive five, ninety minute, hands-on body work sessions throughout the retreat.

In addition, with only six to nine women cared for from morning until bedtime by internationally recognized certified somatic sex educators that have been thoroughly vetted by BttB creator Pamela Madsen, plus additional support staff, Back to the Body is able to provide unparalleled holistic care in a safe, nurturing environment.

The women arrive at Back to the Body with hope and a promise—and they are always stunned on how their own bodies deliver on that promise over the course of the retreat’s five or six days.

Back to the Body is a personal journey of feminine empowerment. Our relationship with our sexuality deeply affects all aspects of our lives from our emotional well-being, our ability to create, self-confidence and even our relationship with food.

I have attended Pamela’s Back to the Body retreats. She profoundly understands, supports and creates space for women to be their own healers and self-awakeners. The resources (body workers, etc), rituals, education, and beautiful environment of her retreats.....combined with her authentic love for women is the magical recipe that truly works. She knows instinctively when a participant needs her own space or ritual to heal and she honors that. She doesn’t subscribe to any scripts nor does she force feed anything to the women. She knows when and how to step in and provide tools/support to help a woman find her way.
Pamela’s belief and trust in a woman’s own ability to heal and empower herself is the foundation from which all her work is built.
