The Breathe Network connects survivors of sexual violence with trauma-informed, sliding-scale, holistic healing arts practitioners. We provide training and education for healing arts practitioners in understanding the impacts of sexual violence and how to provide trauma-informed care within their practice.

Our primary goal is to ensure survivors across the country can identify a sliding-scale, trauma-informed, healer for support. In order to achieve this, we provide online education and in-person training for practitioners seeking the skills to create a survivor-centered, trauma-informed practice.
The healing modalities we offer holistically address the impacts of sexual violence on the body, mind and soul. Our practitioners recognize that the body can be a vital healing resource, that symptoms are natural responses to trauma, and seek to support their clients in identifying their innate resilience.
