energy cystFringe medicine
A term coined by Drs JE Upledger and Z Kami for a pocket of energy that represents a maladaptive response to physical forces following an injury. According to these authors, if a person is harbouring powerful negative feelings (such as anger, resentment, fear, etc.) at the time of the injury, the forces imposed on the body will be retained as energy cysts; the SomatoEmotional Release practitioner encourages the positive aspects of the mind-body and discourages the negative, helping to release the energy cysts from the body by facilitating the body’s memory of the injury, thus ending suppression.
