Trauma Relief Services
TRE or Trauma Release Exercises, is a somatic release technique that activates the natural tremor response to shake off and discharge any stored tension or trauma in the body. Developed by Dr. David Berceli, he founded this technique working in war torn countries in Northern Africa and the Middle East, where he noticed people shaking after going through periods of extreme threat. Through his research, he found that every animal on the planet has this exact same ability to shake off and discharge trauma. For example, when animals in the wild survive a traumatic experience, such as a gazelle surviving a lion attack, they will shake to discharge the trauma experienced in that attack. Humans have this same ability. Unfortunately our modern society has taught us to hold it in, as shaking is not seen as socially acceptable. Because trauma is anything that is overwhelming to our nervous system and we are not discharging the trauma from our physical bodies, this leads to many underlying health issues over time. Utilizing TRE helps us to not only discharge that trauma, it also helps us reconnect to our bodies and build a healthy relationship with our human organism for optimal well being.
