Pain relief is experienced when something releases. Physical relief is the most common experience of pain relief. For instance, my leg hurts, so the tissue surrounding the sciatic nerve is released. Pain relief can also be achieved emotionally and mentally! Cranio Sacral Therapy can help with pain relief. Somato Emotional Release is a therapy used by advanced CranioSacral Therapists.

All of this is working out for my healing.
So, I flip back over on my back so they could start again, since the process had been interrupted.
My Knees are in My Chest … the Somato Emotional Release is Starting
I’m thinking in my mind’s eye, “wow this is really cool! I’m having an emotional release!”
Meanwhile I’m on the table crying and completely contracted.
My whole body starts shaking and shivering, and I start thinking in my rational mind, what the heck is this?
I don’t know what this is?
I don’t like this.
Using Inner Wisdom for Pain Relief
During this session the instructions were to stay silent and just use inner wisdom to do the work.
I decided to take myself out of the process, knowing that I would be going back the next day.
This is something that clients do during Cranio Sacral and Somato Emotional Release sessions.
Our Ego is Getting in the Way of Healing
The problem with keeping the status quo and staying comfortable, is that we never grow.
- Some people are just too scared to get curious.
- And for some people it takes a horrible disease to bring them to the table.
Some people come because they want to raise the consciousness of the planet. They know that healing themselves heals the planet.
There are a long list of reasons why people come to the cranio sacral therapist’s table.
My Inner Wisdom is in Charge to Find Pain Relief
My experience was perfect, and it set me up exactly where I needed to be for day 2.
I wouldn’t know until the next day that I needed to be unfinished for what was coming …

Wow.. I’m totally new to this kind of information… SO intriguing ! Thanks for sharing your experience Heather! Totally agree that the Ego tends to want to keep us from progressing in the best way and that inner wisdom always knows the way.. 🙂
Paul, Thank you so much for commenting! Wait until you see Day 2! Isn’t it funny how that ego wants to keep us small? It almost doesn’t make any sense sometimes. That’s why coaching is so effective!
