SomatoEmotional Release

SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is a therapeutic component of craniosacral therapy that helps rid the mind and body of residual effects of past trauma. Joint research efforts by Dr. John Upledger and biophysicist Dr. Zvi Karni led to the discovery that the body often retains (rather than dissipates) physical forces and the accompanying emotional energy that is triggered by physiological, psychological, emotional or spiritual trauma. As the body heals, it can isolate or wall off this energy into what is called an “energy cyst”. Although a body can initially adapt to the presence of this “energy cyst”, eventually the body weakens or tires of this accommodation and can develop symptoms of pain, dysfunction or emotional stress.

SER is used to gain insight into how past trauma influences physical and emotional health. An SER session is a comfortable holistic mind-body approach that seeks to dissipate the residual effects of past trauma and negative emotional experiences from the mind, body and spirit. The SER process requires sensitivity and expertise on the part of the therapist and trust from the client. Imagery and dialogue can be part of the somatoemotional experience.
