Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®) Experiential Workshop
August 4th 10:00-11:30 a.m.
Presented by Jennifer L. Rolnick, Psy.D., Certified TRE® Provider
As mammals, we have a unique, naturally occurring shaking/tremor response that occurs in the body to release the excess charge after significant stress or a traumatic event. Created by Dr. David Berceli, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. TRE® is a series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. 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.
In this workshop, you will be taught the TRE® exercises and brought through a tremor session. It is experiential and is intended for those who are new to TRE® or who need a refresher, so that you can practice TRE® on your own. This modality is for anyone who serves others, is seeking a natural and effective tool for reducing the impact of everyday stress on their mind and body, and wishes to increase their ability to facilitate healing. No prior level of physical fitness or special ability is required.
