Shake it off with tension stress release exercises

Shaking can be remarkably simple to self-regulate tension and stress. The goal of the exercises is to start a self-directed tremoring process. The tremors are deeply natural and release tension and stress held in the body.

Once you have learnt the exercises and can feel and allow the tremors, you just let the body do its own healing and clearing out of overwhelming experiences. It really can be that easy.

Release the Stress (with TRE)

TRE stands for stress, tension release exercises.

These exercises are based on the basic idea, supported by research, that stress, tension, and trauma are psychological and physical.

TRE is a set of 7 exercises that, in a safe environment, activate the natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibration that releases muscle tension, calming the nervous system. When this muscular shake/vibration mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return to balance.

TRE is developed by dr. David Berceli, founder of the International Center for the Prevention and Healing of Stress, Tension, and Trauma.
