TRE®: Tension and Trauma Release Exercises

Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (or TRE®) is a simple yet innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE safely activates 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.

I obtained extensive training to become certified to teach TRE because, although I have been practicing and teaching many spiritual psychology and healing processes for many years, I found I needed a physiological approach to help clients (and myself) release the stuck patterns of stress and trauma.  Recent research shows that trauma is stored in the body, activated by our survival response of fight, flight, freeze.  Therefore, to return to a state of calm and clarity, we must help the body to release the stress, tension, and trauma and to reset the nervous system.

TRE has been for me and many, that missing piece. And it is extremely accessible! Once learned with a few supervised sessions, people can usually use it as a regular self healing tool on their own, integrating it easily into their regular self care routine. It is also accessible because as it is body-based, it requires no recollection or re-experiencing of stress and traumatic events of the past.

Like Inner Bonding® and all other practices I teach, it is essential to me that you can take your healing into your hands with gentle tools to use in your every day life. TRE is one of the most powerful and effective such tools I have come across in many years. When our nervous system is soothed and reset, we become more expansive, connected, and open to life!

Join me to learn the exercises, develop a regular practice, and deepen your understanding of the innate healing process within your body. Know the invaluable experience of establishing a connected relationship with your body and its divine design. For much more information on this leading edge approach, I recommend you peruse: and watch YouTube videos of Dr. David Berceli.
