SomatoEmotional Release
Dialogue with the body's unconscious intelligence...

What is SomatoEmotional Release?

This Modality is a therapeutic process which stems from CranioSacral Therapy. The practitioner tunes into the client’s CranioSacral rhythm while also incorporating imagery and therapeutic dialogue to search for the root cause of a recurring issue in the body.


Unlike other techniques, these sessions seek the core of the matter and help resolve problems through cooperation between practitioner and client.

It is a combination of Cranio-Sacral Therapy with talk therapy.


A SER session can have very profound results, even life-changing breakthroughs. 



"I had never had bodywork before I came to the Appalachia Guild of Healing Arts. I was looking for simple physical relaxation after a divorce, and at the time, I was also using talk therapy for the psychological stresses and trauma. After my first massage, I bought a package of six in order to try the different therapies offered.


Tara Murphy introduced me to craniosacral therapy, which she described as useful for removing blockages in the flow of cerebrospinal fluid around the head and body. After two sessions, I realized that this bodywork was far more effective than any cognitive behavioral therapy I had received before or since my divorce, and started using craniosacral for all of my trauma relief.


The integration of talk and touch has been extraordinarily healing in a short period of time. 

Before the treatment began, I was terrified of my own feelings, not knowing what each morning might bring on. Tara and I have focused on linking my thoughts and emotions so that I can actually process the trauma. After four sessions, I was significantly less depressed and anxious than I was when I came in. I have found more confidence in my own ideas and been more able to reach out to my friends, and the rest of the world in general, for comfort. I’ve also been less sensitive to outside judgments, learning that they are not my responsibility. It is an amazingly gentle form of therapy that expands your awareness and opens your mind to new possibilities. - Alexis L (2018)"
