What is Somato Emotional Release and Can It Help Me?

What is Somato Emotional Release (SER), and Can It Help Me? For those of us who may have experienced a traumatic experience, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual we may not realize that the body can hold onto the negative forces. Defensively, as the body heals, it can wall of, or isolate this energy into what researchers call an energy cyst.

The Power of Words

The Power of Words

The Power of Words “Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” – Rumi (Persian poet and Sufi master born in 1207) Considering this month’s focus on oral health, I pondered the many areas of our lives that involve the mouth.

Everyday stress can become overwhelming; if unresolved, it can affect your ability to respond appropriately. We’ve all had the experience of overreacting to an emotional trigger during times of stress. To get through the day, many of us stuff-down these feelings of grief, anxiety, fear and pain. These feelings, however, cannot be ignored forever, and will find ways to let you know they’re still there.
