A method of SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is included in the CranioSacral Therapy (CST) playbook. The basic principle is that we have emotional energy stuck in the soma, or muscle and soft tissue. When the emotion releases, it often has to be felt in the process. As the emotion releases from the body, other energy from the original trauma, or injury, is released with it.
Dialoguing is used to explore, discover, and resolve the emotion connected to the trauma or energy. When trauma, an impact – either physical, or energetic, enters into the tissue, the body dissipates as much as possible. Often when an emotion is involved, the trauma seems to be more difficult to dissipate. What the body cannot resolve itself is walled off into energy cysts.
