What’s TRE?

Dr. David Berceli, an international social worker, developed TRE® for his study of human trauma response. 

He noticed that the human body contracts when faced with threat and that shaking is a primitive response to recover stress and trauma, shared by both humans and animals.  

"Shaking" is a natural response to stress & trauma, and part of human behavior.

Shaking causes deep relaxation which reduces stress levels and increases resiliency of the body.  Stressful events and experiences can over-charge the body.  TRE  is the process that activates the body to unwind tension and begin recovery, by literally "shaking it  off".  

Through a series of simple physical stretches (from the ankle to the hips), the body welcomes a natural shaking, which releases tension and normalizes the nervous system back to well-being. For more information on TRE, go to Trauma Prevention.
TRE is not recommended for women who are pregnant.
