Somato Emotional Release

Somato Emotional Release is therapeutic process that helps rid the mind and body of residual effects of past trauma and associated negative responses.  Dr. John Upledger and biophysicist Dr. Zvi Kami developed this modality after recognizing that the body often retains – rather than dissipates – physical forces as the result of accident, injury or emotional trauma.  Following trauma, the body isolates the “energy cyst.”  An aspect of CranioSacral Therapy, therapists utilizing SomatoEmotional Release help the client physically identify and expel the energy cyst through re-experiencing and resolving the unpleasant incidents.  Through therapeutic dialogue, imagery and touch, the client and therapist invite cooperation of the body and conscious mind to release the residual effects of past injuries and negative experiences.
