Somatic Stress Releasing Exercises
Based on the innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma, developed by David Bercelli. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.
Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (or TRE®) is based on the fundamental idea, backed by research, that stress, tension and trauma is both psychological and physical. TRE®’s reflexive muscle vibrations generally feel pleasant and soothing. After doing TRE®, many people report feelings of peace and well-being. TRE® has helped many thousands of people globally.
TRE® is designed to be a self-help tool that, once learned, can be used independently as needed throughout one’s life, thereby continuously supporting and promoting personal health and wellness.
“Helplessness is a universal state for people overwhelmed by traumatic stress. Gaining control of their symptoms, their body, and their life is an essential part of the healing process. TRE is a powerful tool to achieve this. I have personally used TRE and have taught them to friends and patients with remarkable results.” Robert Scaer MD, Author of the Body Bears the Burden: Trauma Dissociation and Disease
