A UKI-based "Priestess of the Goddess" undertaking studies at Australia's first Institute of Somatic Sexology is advertising for clients to try out her controversial practical coursework.

In her Uki "temple", Kerri Ryan has been working with clients under supervision while she undertakes internal examination of their genitals, to earn a certificate in sexological bodywork.

It's claimed that during sessions, Ms Ryan can isolate a client's "scar tissue" or "trauma". This can cause sexual dysfunction such as impotence, inability to orgasm, pain or numbness.

Ms Ryan uses a combination of erotic and gentle massage with castor oil, and counselling to "heal" the issues.

She is targeting her services to sex abuse victims and those suffering injury from surgical procedures or childbirth.

"This work allows me to ... go in and work internally, with gloved hands, and go into the vaginal area ... (clients) can have pain, or all sorts of stuff," she said.

Ms Ryan holds a masters in religious study from the University of Queensland and is also a Reiki "master".

"I studied mysticism ... ritual and magic, the (Knights) Templars and Satanism," she said.

"It was really great but (my) actual masters was on the Sacred Prostitute."

She came to her understanding of the need for the emerging therapy of sexology following 10 years of hosting sex workshops in Byron Bay, where some clients failed to orgasm.

The Tweed Daily understands there is at least one other massage therapist from a Uki day spa undertaking the certificate in sexological bodywork.

The Health Care Complaints Commission and the Institute of Somatics Sexology has been contacted for comment, in relation to regulation of sexology, which is illegal in all US states, bar California.
