TRE

 

What is TRE (pronounced T.R.E.)?

  • Tension and trauma Releasing Exercises, created by Dr David Berceli, that fatigue your muscles and facilitate natural therapeutic tremors.
  • These tremors, or shakes, release muscular tension, trauma, and held patterns by resetting primitive reflexes.
  • TRE is a simple tool to complete stress/trauma cycles ~ past and present. (When stressed, we tend to prevent the healing cycle by contracting and ‘holding ourselves together’, whereas wild animals shake off stress.)
  • Once learned well from a TRE Provider, it is a self-help tool for life.

How can TRE help you?

  • TRE calms the nervous system as it discharges stress, which increases your sense of well-being and can help you find deeper sleep and relaxation.
  • It releases fear and shock imprints in your body from accidents, violence, illnesses, and traumas, no matter when they occurred.
  • It creates embodiment (grounding), reconnects us with parts of the body we’ve lost touch with or numbed out.
  • It can assist the release of sexual ‘blockages’.
  • TRE is used widely to help deep trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. (I don’t yet work with severe PTSD but can refer you).

 

What to expect in a session

  • TRE introduction (first time)
  • Check-in re your state of being/physical limitations
  • Muscle fatiguing exercises x 7 for 20 min. These can be adjusted according to your limitations.
  • Tremors/shakes and rests 20 minutes. Usually on a yoga mat on the floor.
  • Tea, feedback and questions. How was it for you? Where next?

 

Why I offer TRE

I believe in holistic healing, which includes mind, body, emotions, spirit and environment. My counselling has always included numerous approaches to cover these elements, and yet how to release imprints on the body of shock and trauma remained illusive. It became increasingly clear that without working with body physiology, unreleased past imprints and tension would still hijack the now and prevent us from being fully present and relaxed.

When I first experienced TRE, I knew I’d found my missing piece (or peace) and signed up for the training immediately. My own experiences have been so transformational that I am passionate about assisting others to create their own personal TRE practice.

 

Choices and Costs

At least three guided sessions are recommended to prepare you to use TRE as a lifelong stress release practice, although you are welcome to come and try it once. For those with deeper issues, it is wise to continue supported sessions until the time feels right to go it alone. Some continue to gift themselves with regular support in this healing space away from home because it guarantees that the self-care and de-stressing will continue.

All the options below happen in my interesting home, Heartwood, in the Bowden House intentional community.

Payment is by cash or cheque at the end of each session. Bank transfers welcome but to be paid within 24 hours with an email informing me that the payment has been done. PayPal can be used if outside UK.

 

ONE-ON-ONE TRE

1.5 hours of full personal attention to help you learn how to safely release tension/trauma.

 All first One-on-one sessions are £30 for 1.5 hours

Cost range for subsequent individual TRE sessions:

£45 ~ £60 (1.5 hours)

Tune in to what you can honestly afford and pay according to your means. If you pay more, it supports those who have less to give.

TREMOR TRIOS

This is like a mini class; a spacious 2 hours with 2 others experiencing TRE followed by sharing, tea and treats. Email me (see Contact page) for other dates/availability and book your place in advance.

Cancellations/ ‘No shows’

Please value my time. If you cancel within 24 hours or just don’t show, you will be asked to give full payment.

 

 Stress/ trauma disturbs the homeostatus of the integrated system of the human body. This causes it to have differentiated parts and disharmonious experiences.

Dr. Dan Siegel

The tremor mechanism accesses these differentiated parts and disharmonious experiences and reorganises them into an integrated whole so that the body can function again in an integrated manner. Self-induced therapeutic tremors restore the harmony of the organism and return the body back into a fluid, flexible and integrated system.

Dr. David Berceli
