CranioSacral Therapy & Somato Emotional Release

Healers of many stripes have come to a deeper understanding of the bodymind connection, and that connection’s own relationship to distress. Research conducted in the late ’70s by Dr. John Upledger let to the discovery that the body often retains the emotional imprint of physical trauma and psychological trauma. The body attempts to adapt to these “energy cysts,” and eventually the daily demand for extra energy becomes exhausting. That’s when symptoms and dysfunctions begin to appear: frozen shoulders, backs that frequently “go out,” irritable bowel syndrome, among a host of others.
The need for types of body work that are effective and non-traumatic has become imperative. CranioSacral Therapy (CST), and Somato Emotional Release (SER), provide gentle, non-intrusive, well-intentioned touch, facilitating the release of trauma and other distress stored, especially in connective tissue. By complementing the body’s own natural healing processes, instead of pushing, SER facilitates the body in its own ability to express, and discharge, past hurts created by medical trauma, abuse, violence, overwhelming stress or neglect.
