Four years ago, I was involved in a traumatic experience that surpassed my coping mechanisms. I found myself struggling. Panic was a daily occurrence. Talking about the experience made my trauma symptoms worse. My relationships suffered. My work was suffering too. I was stuck. Really stuck. Fortunately, I came across Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE©) after being introduced to the treatment modality by a local bodyworker, Alex Greene. In a 60-minute session, Alex taught me how to initiate the body’s innate tremoring mechanism. After one or two sessions with Alex, I was able to replicate the process at home. TRE© developed by Dr. David Berceli, is a simple process of seven different steps that are appropriate for all fitness levels. The exercises help release deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and trauma. Subsequently, the nervous system is calmed and the body is encouraged to return to a normal state of balance.
What followed my first experience with TRE© was a calm that I had never experienced. Fast forward to two years later, and Alex convinced me to become a certified TRE© provider. The changes that I have noticed in myself throughout this process (decreased anxiety, decreased irritability, increased presence), have been echoed by others closest to me.
Turns out, I am not alone in my experience with TRE©. People around the world have reported decreased anxiety, improved sleep, decreased pain, and reduction in PTSD symptoms after learning TRE©. In fact, TRE © was recently recommended as a treatment modality for a Hurricane Harvey survivor in the May 2019 issue of Oprah Magazine. You can see the survivor’s experience with TRE© here: https://traumaprevention.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/TREinOMagazine.jpg.
TRE has done more than release me from the thrones of a traumatic experience. It has decreased anxiety that I have held in my body since I can remember. I hope you join me on July 12th at Haumea to learn this amazing process. It could be life-changing for you--it has been for me!
