Have you ever had a physical injury that seemed to plague you long after the site healed?

That is not as unusual as you might think. Even when Craniosacral Therapy releases restrictions in Healthy Body tissues, sometimes a release of emotional energy is necessary to fully discharge a trauma. In those cases, the Craniosacral Therapist may gently encourage a SomatoEmotional Release.

The Healthy Body often retains the emotional imprint of physical trauma. These imprints, especially of intense feelings that may have occurred at the time of injury, leaves residue in the Healthy Body areas calked “energy cysts.”

Although you can adapt to energy cysts, over time your Healthy Body needs extra energy to continue performing day to day functions. Then as years pass the Healthy Body becomes more stressed, it can lose its ability to adapt. That’s when symptoms and dysfunctions begin to appear and become difficult to suppress or ignore.

Through SomatoEmotional Release, the therapist engages in imaging and dialogue techniques that can guide you through an otherwise challenging encounter with long-held emotions. You do not need to analyze the problem in order to release it.

You are then free to return to optimal levels of functioning.
