Tension and Trauma Release Exercises: Introductory Workshops in 2019

As a community offering, I provide monthly guided TRE introductory workshops on a sliding scale basis. Please see below for workshop description and registration links.

What is TRE?

TRE is a simple technique to release stress or tension from the body that accumulates from everyday circumstances of life, difficult situations, immediate or prolonged stressful situations, and traumatic life experiences.

Using six simple exercises, TRE helps to release deep tension from the body by evoking self-controlled muscular shaking. The process is unique in that this shaking originates deep in the core of the body, producing gentle tremors that reverberate outward along the spine, releasing tension from the sacrum to the cranium.

TRE users report:

  • Release of deep tension and chronic holding patterns

  • Better nervous system regulation;

  • Personal grounding and more resilience;

  • Greater energy and stamina resulting from more restful sleep.

By the end of this workshop, you'll learn how to do the TRE exercises and restore a more balanced state of well-being in your life. 

You are welcome to register for more than one workshop should you wish to deepen your practice in a supportive group setting.
