In the following article Michele Rosenthal writes about how trauma affects the brain and how activating the parasympathetic nervous system shifts the body into restorative mode.
TRE (Tension and Trauma Release Exercises) is one of the most wonderful modalities I have come across and it enables the body to shift into a restorative mode. Please come and join me on my next 6 week course and learn how to use it by yourself at home.
6 WEEK TRE GROUP COURSE STARTING ON TUESDAY 19 JANUARY IN CLAREMONT
We are all affected by stress and trauma – it is part of life.
Designed by David Berceli, TRE is a simple technique that helps your body release stress or tension that has accumulated from day-to-day life experiences, immediate or ongoing stressful situations, and traumatic life events. A set of simple exercises invokes a mild tremor which helps bring the nervous system back to a state of calm and balance. Once learned TRE is a gentle and effective self-healing tool.
Some of the reported benefits of TRE include:
- Greater sense of calm and inner peace
- Less anxiety and worry
- Reduced pain
- Improved sleep quality
- Reduced symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- Increased emotional resilience
- Healing of old injuries
- Relief from chronic medical conditions
- Release of muscular tension from exercise and sport
- Increased mobility and flexibility
- Increased spiritual connection
