Date TBA | Alachua, FL
Open to Everyone!
TRE® (Tension, Stress & Trauma Release Exercise) is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance. Some of the reported benefits of TRE® are: less worry & anxiety, more energy & endurance, less workplace stress, better sleep, less relationship conflict, reduced muscle & back pain, and greater emotional resiliency.
TRE® consists of seven exercises/movements that prepare the body to release deep tension from the muscles by inviting the natural muscular shaking process in the body called neurogenic tremors. The exercises are stretches and movements designed to fatigue the big muscles in the body as a gateway to remind the body how to access this tremor mechanism. Once the techniques are learned and practiced, the tremors will occur naturally when the body is correctly positioned.
In this two-day workshop you will be given a foundational understanding of how the body and brain, particularly the limbic system, respond to stress and trauma. You will also be guided through the exercises three times so that you will be able to continue regular practice on your own after the workshop.
Please Note: This is not a certification workshop. Participants will not be certified to teach the process to anyone else.

The property encourages letting go of daily life so that participants can focus on their own process of relaxation and healing.
