TRE (tension and trauma releasing exercises) is an innovative approach to managing and mitigating the effects of stress in your body and in your life. Whether we realize it or not, stress is something that impacts every one of us on a daily basis. Our bodies weren't designed to live with the chronic and sometimes toxic stress that so many of us carry.
TRE was created by Dr. David Bercelli, and uses a set of 7 gentle and adaptable exercises that can be modified to support every body type and ability, to elicit an intentional and self controlled muscular tremor, deep in the core of the body. Similar to the way animals shake off stress, this tremor reflex seeks out and gently vibrates open deeply held patterns of tension in the muscle tissue and fascia of the body, while naturally quieting and re-regulating the nervous system.
The tremor originates in the brain-stem, the part of the brain that regulates autonomic body functions, and does not involve the emotional or thinking brain, so even historic patterns of trauma and stress can be safely and gently released without re-triggering painful memories. Essentially TRE allows the body to do this processing for us. TRE is accessible and easy to learn. Most people find it easy to integrate TRE into their lives, and more importantly, derive benefit from it almost immediately.
This three session series will allow each practitioner the opportunity to learn about and familiarize themselves with TRE. Most people can effectively learn to self regulate within the TRE practice, and can self direct the practice once these sessions have been completed. In this series we will learn how stress affects both our physiology and psychology, and how this internal and inherent recovery response can help to reduce the negative effects of stress on our nervous system, thereby opening up a life that feels more manageable, a mind that feels calmer and more clear, and a body that feels relaxed and enlivened. Empower yourself with your own biology, and feel the difference almost immediately!
TRE is a safe and effective stress release technique for most people. The TRE process should not be used as a substitute for trauma recovery procedures of a medical or psychological nature.
