Deborah Brown - Tension Releasing Exercise
TRE or Tension Releasing Exercises is a sequence of seven exercises designed by Dr David Berceli to engage a natural reflex to release stress, through shaking. The tremors and other involuntary movements allow us to release long held tension patterns, stress and trauma from the body. This release allows the nervous system, which can get stuck in primitive survival strategies (commonly known as flight/flight/freeze), to reboot and balance. Although relatively new to the UK, David Berceli’s TRE is used by thousands across the world for easy every day stress release, as well as being effective in helping with physical and mental health, chronic stress, tension, PTSD, and trauma. It has been widely used in the forces and with survivors of sexual abuse for the treatment of PTSD.
