This Navy Seal and I did not know that the body had an innate capability to spontaneous release in this way until we experienced it ourselves. This physical response can also be accompanied by a release of emotion or recollections of past experiences/traumas. My CranioSacral therapist, Karen Axelrod CMT, D-CST, sent me this link and told me that the movements demonstrated in this video mimicked how my body moved during our treatment sessions. These spontaneous movements are often called “unwinding” and they can take many different forms. When my pain condition ramps up- moving in this way calms my nervous system, relaxes the muscles throughout my pelvic area and legs, and decreases my pain.
