Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) is a therapeutic technique developed by Dr. David Berceli. It is designed to help individuals release and heal from trauma stored in the body. TRE involves a series of simple exercises that target the body's natural tremor response. By engaging in these exercises, individuals can activate the body's innate mechanism for releasing stress and tension.
The tremors that occur during TRE are a natural and involuntary response of the body, similar to the tremors experienced during shaking off stress after a traumatic event. These tremors help discharge the stored tension and trauma from the body, leading to a sense of calmness and relaxation.
TRE can be a useful tool for individuals who have experienced traumatic events or chronic stress. It can help reduce symptoms of anxiety, improve sleep, and increase overall well-being. However, it is important to note that TRE should be practiced under the guidance of a trained professional to ensure safety and proper support throughout the process.
If you are considering trying TRE, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare provider or a qualified TRE practitioner who can provide guidance and support tailored to your specific needs and circumstances.
Whole Body Breathing picks up heavily on the trauma release of the psoas and general body, using it to restore proper form/posture, restore CranioSacral Theory and develop proper form in the body and face.
