The first part of this essay defined “somatic recall” as the release during massage and other kinds of bodywork of repressed and often highly emotional memories. Often such “flashbacks” are beneficial, leading to resolution of old trauma, pain, or psychological attitudes. Sometimes therapist and client simultaneously detect an identical avalanche of sensory information. We described some ways that soft tissues can store information, and how touching certain parts of the body could trigger and then erase memories at the same time that toxic materials are being released, physiological communication channels are opening up, and flexibility is being restored.
