TRE® Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises
For the last couple of years, I have been looking for a tool to help my clients. I have noticed that often people struggle in either talking about a trauma or feeling something in their body and struggle to talk about the memory. Last year, I found TRE®, Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises. I soon found myself in a very long training in order to be able to teach others.
What is it?
TRE® is a series of exercises that fatigue and stretch certain muscle groups in order to trigger a natural tremoring mechanism. This brings heat and shaking to the myofascial system that is throughout our body, which allows for tension patterns to be released. All the while, this also sends a signal to the brain indicating that this tension pattern or memory is no longer there and then the brain is able to “let go” also.
Clients have reported:
*Decrease in stress
*Better sense of well-being
*Decrease in chronic pain
*Better able to focus
*Less body tension
*Less emotional vulnerability
*Decrease in taking medications like thyroid, blood pressure
*Better connections with others
*Decrease in anxiety and depression
Who started TRE® ?
David Berceli, Ph.D. in social work, body worker, and humanitarian developed TRE® . He discovered that we have a natural tremoring mechanism inside all of us. He came up with a series of exercises that fatigue and stretch out certain muscles groups that can bring on tremoring in our own bodies. He also designed this that after 2 to 3 sessions is can become a self-practice.
Isn’t this similar to Peter Levine’s work?
Yes, very much so. However, this is also a self-practice.
Why should I come to you? There are books and videos that I can learn this from. I can learn on my own.
Yes. You can. There are several benefits from learning from a Certified TRE® Provider. A certified provider can support and answer questions that are directly related to you and your body. Some people’s central nervous system need to support from others and this will be difficult to know on your own.
When will you start offering classes or session?
Soon. I’m currently looking for a space. Please contact me, email is best.
I look forward to hearing from you.
