Leslie Korn used storytelling for her keynote “Somatic Empathy: Restoring Public Health with Massage.” Korn captivated attendees with stories of her work collaborating with tribal communities in Mexico and the United States to restore touch therapies and nutrition from traditional foods, traditions that had dropped off in response to complex and historical trauma. “Their bodies told stories their minds longed to keep quiet,” she said. Without breaking from her storytelling style, she fed the audience data from many studies, shared techniques for healing that were evidence-driven, and made recommendations for future studies. It was a rare treat that set the mood for the day, acknowledging the intangible nature of massage alongside the evidence.
