I have no experience with somatic-emotional release but I guess I can work out what it is. Generally, I think that anything that makes you "feel" better is probably a good thing but CST can, as I said be very powerful and you need to be carfeul.
My general view is that for all but the very chronic and acute cases of PMT, techniques which "unravel" your muslces and bio-mechanics will generally solve much of the problem.
I read how many people and dentists and specialists people go to - often at the same time - and I just think it is making things worse. "TMJ doctors", to Dentist, to pysiotherapists, chiropractors, etc etc etc. Nothing especially wrong with any of them but perhaps not all at once!
The head, neck and jaw are very inter-related and the muscle gorups and anatomy is complex and sometimes very tiny. The smallest problem with the balance can cause hideous problems. Stick with it and don't get too varied with your treatments.
