Somatic Release is a gentle hands-on integrative therapy that releases physical, mental and emotional pain from the physical body. It works directly on the fascial system of the body, which is known as our “living body armour”. This body armour contains all our physical, mental and emotional experiences.
When we experience injury, accident, surgery, or any other trauma, our body armour records the experience. When this becomes problematic, is when it is not fully released and resolved from our soma, or body. An accumulation of traumas can lead to pain, dysfunction, anxiety, depression, and a variety of somatic experiences.
Somatic release provides the body an opportunity to release what is causing pain or dysfunction, and in turn resets and restores the nervous system. This in turn allows for more balance in the body, and a feeling of calm and peace.
Somatic release can also occur within a CranioSacral Session.
