TRE® is a method of stress release developed by Dr David Berceli©. He revolutionized our understanding of the shaking and tremor reflex that happens after a traumatic event. Instead being viewed as a symptom of stress, these movements are rather understood to be the bodies recovery reflex that restore our body and mind to a calm, relaxed and balanced state. Old traumatic memory stored in the body carries with it “bound” energy that causes the person to be more anxious and angry or even depressed. Learning to elicit the involuntary tremor mechanism allows the body to discharge of that stress resulting in relaxation and calmness.
Dr Berceli found a way to access the bodies natural tremor instinct. He developed a set of exercises that elicit the involuntary tremors in a safe way. A TRE® trained therapist knows how to slow the tremors down to a manageable pace thus keeping the experience at a manageable level. When the body experiences this sense of safety, it releases. And often, but not always, a memory will pop up. These exercises should therefore always be done with a therapist to start with. Once a person learns how to navigate the process TRE® is a very effective self-help tool for reducing anger and anxiety and relieving stress from the body. It is great for alleviating a state of depression as, used regularly, it gets a person out of the state of “freeze”.
TRE® is a tool for anyone who finds they get charged up in response to the stresses of daily life by getting irritated, frustrated, anxious or worried who would benefit from unwinding these emotional body based responses to experience greater peace, calmness and freedom in their lives. It brings deeper relaxation, improves sleep, reduces pain and improves stability, brings more energy and faster recovery.
