Somato Emotional Release NYC
Somato Emotional release means, a letting go, releasing, getting over and neutralizing negative experiences of your particular life. Experiences that are stuck in your body (soma) which means tissue of the body. Bad, negative, unpleasant experiences and traumas become stuck energetically in the body’s own tissues creating pain and disturbing the mind-body connection. Emotion you have felt from these negative live experiences literally become trapped in the body. These unresolved emotions are not serving your highest purpose but on the contrary, disrupt your body’s ability to self-regulate.
The mind-body’s inability of letting go of some unpleasant experiences, events, and overwhelming past emotions can become stuck in the body in a negative form. Which can all cause you to have unproductive thoughts, lack of lymphatic fluid movement throughout the body and energy stagnation. This impacts your physical and mental health, can cause pain or muscle spasm, lead to experiencing lots of stress, unexplained anxiety and even depression. A somato emotional release can alleviate all this.
What Causes This in the Body?
For example, a break-up with a significant other, scary car-accident, argument with a colleague or family member, bullying and other hundreds of likely negative interactions we live through in our daily lives. These interactions create in the soma an unhealthy energetic balance creating pain, discomfort, anxiety, depression or other health symptoms / conditions.
How is a Somato Emotional Release Achieved?
Somato Emotional Release (SER) is the process that takes place during a Craniosacral Therapy (CST) session, whereby the hands of the practitioner are placed on specific areas of the body to facilitate the patient’s body tissues (soma) to release these physiologically compromising life experiences, as mentioned above, that are stuck in your soma from your past. Hence the name, Somato Emotional Release.
There are a few ways to achieve a release of emotions from the body. Dr. Kaminsky combines Craniosacral Therapy while guiding the patient to actively participating in a guided breathing technique while lying on the table. This facilitates the patient’s body to release, to achieve a Somato Emotional Release.
Stuck, unprocessed, unresolved traumas and experiences are released from the physical body during the session.
Often during the hands-on session patients feel soothing, smooth, pleasant sensations throughout the body as the releasing occurs. Less frequently there may be unpleasant temporary sensations, emotional processes such as crying, laughing and an experiencing of certain emotions.
What Happens After SER Session?
CST is meant to facilitate releases in the body during the session and then there is processing time which is usually one to two days after the session but can last up to a week. This is where the Central Nervous System recognizes that the body released some (one or two, or three, or more) emotional energy, and your system will make a correction in the physical body and the mind-body connection. A noticeable improvement in your mental and / or physical condition will take place.
The Mind Body Connection
The mind and body are linked. Unprocessed, unresolved experiences, negatively charged memories effect the health and relationship between the physical body, mind and spirit. One has major dependency on the state of health of the other, and vice versa. Mind and body are interdependent on each other for health.
Decreased neck and back pain, improved quality of sleep, diminished levels of stress, happy life, etc., are all results of the body finally letting go, having a somato emotional release. How the body works is something very important to understand.
How Many Sessions Does One Need?
That all depends on how much is stuck in the soma and what your personal goals are. It may take one session to produce the results you are looking for, and for some people it will take multiple sessions to fully achieve a satisfactory level of Somato Emotional Release.
