SomatoEmotional release work facilitates the release of the emotional restriction in the body that is caused by trauma or emotion that has become ‘stuck’. Often times the body retains the emotional impact of a physical trauma. These imprints, especially of intense feelings that may have occurred at the time of injury-anger, fear, resentment, leave residues in the body in areas called “energy cysts”.
Through SomatoEmotional Release the therapist engages in imaging and dialoguing techniques that can guide the client through an otherwise challenging encounter with long-held emotions. The client does not need to analyze the problem to release it.
Often the body will spontaneously return to the same position it was in when the injury was first sustained. As this occurs the therapist can feel the tissues of the body relax as the energy cyst is expelled. Then the body is free to return to its optimal levels of functioning.
