CranioSacral Therapy, & it’s adjunct SomatoEmotional Release

A straight forward 3 stage approach was originally developed by the late Dr John E. Upledger D.O., O.M.M. to insure that the client can receive the maximum benefit of a CranioSacral Therapy.

Stage One

The CST Ten Step Protocol focuses on the membrane and soft tissues of the Central Nervous System. The Ten Step Protocol was developed to mobilize the flexible components of the Central Nervous System and eliminate any restrictions to its proper mobility. The facilitator follows the the CranioSacral rhythm throughout the body to locate and release any tensions along the length of spinal code and cranial membranes. Key focus areas are the cranium and the sacrum. By applying a gentle and light touch, about 5 grams of pressure, the facilitator mobilizes the soft tissues and membranes of the cranium and sacrum.

Stage Two

Known as the “Avenue of Expression”, is the areas that extends from the eyebrows to the collar bones. Theses are the structures, tissues, fluids and energies involved in the expression of words, images, feelings and so on. Each of these components have at least some influence over the ability of the client’s ability to express him\herself. These expressions can either be in words, sounds, or expressions of emotions.

The session focuses on the structures of the face and neck. This includes the muscles of the neck that connect with the hyoid bone and the bones of the face and jaw.  Some of this work is done inside the mouth. It is of the utmost importance that the Avenue of Expression are opened before proceeding to Stage Three.

Stage Three 

SomatoEmotional Release ® is based on the concept that the whole body as well as each of its cells, tissues, viscera, and systems having an independent and yet integrated body unconsciousnesses, which is often referred to as a Soft Tissue memory.

This approach involves releasing disruptive and blocked energies that have been lodged in the soft-tissues of the body that originally occurred during the traumatic injury.

Dr. Upledger coined the term “energy cysts” to describe these anomalies, which are found in soft-tissue regions of the body and often loaded with negative emotional content. Left untreated, these regions can lead to a decline in the body’s health.

SomatoEmotional Release® is very effective method for aiding the body’s own self healing ability. The CranioSacral Therapist works to support the client, to help identify and release these areas of the body that are holding these “energy cysts”. Releases are always based on individual experiences and circumstances and are facilitated through the cooperation of the body’s deep unconsciousness.

The progression through the 3 Stages are dependent on the individual progress of the client. Each stage depends on the preceding stage. The majority of sessions will more than likely be spent on Stage 3.

SomatoEmotional Release® is very effective in releasing emotions that are stored in the body’s tissue, which in turn helps the body facilitate its own healing. As the stored emotions are processed and released, the body has a greater ability to improve its total health.

The Body’s Self Correcting Mechanism

Years ago, I had a neck injury, a “whiplash.” It was a very emotional event for me . . . I really feared that I would never recover. I hurt all over, and couldn’t even use my car’s rear view mirror without pain.  I couldn’t turn my head to the left at all, and I could not even stand up straight.

I was quickly loosing my attitude also. I was constantly moody and anxious about whether or not I would recover.  That was when I was first introduced to craniosacral therapy, and somatoemotional release. The experienced was a miracle, because it was a life changer for me. It’s the thing that inspired me to become a certified craniosacral therapist.

A traumatic injury, is often caused by an impact force, like a fall, a blow to the head or body. Even an emotional or physical assault, can result in physical injuries.  The force of the injury, enters the body’s soft tissue and becomes stuck, when it does the body’s natural healing processes can’t release it all.

Left untreated the body’s self regulatory system becomes overwhelmed and begin to fatigue. Which can then lead to a serious decline in health. The impact force, is like a disruptive force of energy, buried and lodged within the body’s soft tissue. It’s known as an “energy cysts.”  When the energy cysts becomes chronic, it causes mobility and circulation issues with in the body. And Yes, it also often leads to chronic mood swings and behavior changes. Like negative emotions, and thought processes like fear, anger, shame and even despair.

Once my craniosacral therapist, located my body’s injury site, she found that the cause was a buried energy cyst. She melded in with my body and began to help it unwind, and release, these trouble anomalies.  Simply by intentionally directing healing energy through the troubled aspects of the body, and by asking for information and a change. The felt sensory experience, is very much like a trance, where you feel like and imagine that you are in a conversation with the body’s own deep inner wisdom. That part of the body’s that still knows how to heal.
Once the release is initiated, tears of joy, anger, shame and even memories of fear can well up from inside you. Sometimes this happens with or without the associated memory of the traumatic event that lead to your injury.
Somehow,  just by holding the space, intentionally working with the body’s intelligence, directing Healing “InnerQi” – listening and allowing the body to express its own emotional content helps the body release its own energy cysts, and begin the integrative healing process, that enables the body to self correct and well being. That my friend is where the miracle of health happens.

Fundamental Pattern of Alchemy is

Recently I have become excited about new patterns showing up in my life.

A friend, introduced me to Nassim Haramein’s work, and I really was inspired by his theoretical concepts and work.

Nassim Haramein has spent most of his life, studying the geometry of hyperspace, theoretical physics, quantum mechanics and ancient religions. Haramein combined his knowledge with that of Albert Einstein’s work, who came up with the Theory of Relativity and developed a Unified Field Theory to explain creation and the vacuum that connects all things.

Through his studies, Haramein found both in the ancient and in modern world evidence of a fundamental pattern, a life force that is holographically present at every level of the universe, from the subtle levels of an atom, all the way up to a galactic levels.

Nassim Haramein’s film entitled “The Black Whole“, provides the expired the scientific evidence that we are all one, that everything has this same quantum pattern and is entangled with the intellect mind, and matrix of things.

Haramein maintains that he has found the scientific proof that all of universe is formulated, from this same life force, energetic pattern. It moves in a toroidal motion and emerged from the vacuum, the creative source that spawned the entire universe with all its galaxies, black holes, stars, planets and DNA codes of life. 

We are all connected, energetically, “Spiritual” beings. It is the most basic and fundamental level of all things.

In Biblical speak, there is a “veil between heaven and earth” I think of it as a gap between our ordinary and our non-ordinary consciousness, our cognitive thinking brain and our heart’s sacred InnerQi wisdom.

Tapping into our heart’s innerqi wisdom, expands our awareness and opens our consciousness to the deep sacred wisdom of life.

When we tap into our body’s intuition through our heart, we gain direct access, our awareness opens up and crosses over the gap “veil.” In that moment that’s when, we can ask, to learn things and direct healing innerqi to manifest changes, in those things that need a a changed.

I hope to share with you more about this quantum phenomena in later posts.

Learning to accessing it, has been life transforming experience for me. It has saved my bacon on numerous times, it has been the difference between just surviving and thriving.

Love and Light, my friends.
