The Healing Power of a Gentle Touch. The craniosacral system (a physiological system like the cardiovascular and respiratory systems) provides the physical environment which the brain and spinal cord develop and function. The craniosacral system has more impact on your central nervous system than any other system in the body, thereby having influence over your health and well-being. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, this light touch technique works with natural and unique rhythms of our different body systems to pinpoint and correct source problems. Moreover, it naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well- being. Somato Emotional Release is a therapeutic process that expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. Joint research efforts by Dr. Upledger led to the discovery that the body often retains physical forces. This is often the result of an accident, injury, or emotional trauma. Releasing the “walled” trauma will enhance all the body’s healing activities.
