Anxious. Stressed out. Overwhelmed. These words are all too common ways to describe how we feel on a daily basis. Life is stressful, but that reality doesn’t have to control you.
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. It may take only three sessions to feel confident in the ability to regulate the practice and stay feeling comfortable. After that people are free to practice on their own.TRE® is meant to be a self care tool that you can access for the rest of your life to promote health and wellness on all levels.
TRE® is for everyone, and is a practice of empowerment. Our bodies are wise beyond belief, and every person has this internal resource waiting to be expressed to find deeper healing and calmness. Quieter mind, clearer outlook on life, greater sense of emotional resilience.
Whether you are suffering from symptoms of post traumatic stress, or just trying to keep your head above water in a fast paced and chaotic world, TRE® has something to offer you, and you are invited to come and check it out.
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.
