“TRE integrates well with traditional therapeutic modalities because it supports healing at the deepest biological levels of the neuro-physiology, where traumatic fear responses originate.” www.traumaprevention.com
What is it?
Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (or TRE®) is a body based somatic process that releases tension without having to verbally revisit a stressful story or traumatizing event. It also functions as a self care tool to prevent the long term effects of extended periods of stress. TRE® consists of 7 simple movements that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension & trauma.
Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibration that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system, very similar to how animals regulate themselves & prevent trauma while living in the wild.
When this mechanism is activated in a safe & controlled environment, the body is naturally encouraged to return back homeostasis & functional harmony of the physical & mental systems.
TRE® can be facilitated privately or in large groups. TRE® promotes cohesiveness, kindness & compassion & openness to collaboration between participants. TRE® can cross culture & language barriers because it is based on natural physiological responses shared by all human beings.
