TRE is a simple, gentle and profound technique that facilitates the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional tension and stress. The TRE exercises tire the legs, triggering an involuntary shaking and trembling response, which begins in the legs and often spreads throughout the body. This natural response - called Self Induced Therapeutic Tremors (SITT) - is the nervous systems way of discharging long-held tension and unconscious body contraction (due to everyday stress and traumatic life experiences), in order to restore the body to wholeness.

Some of the reported benefit of TRE are:
Healing of symptoms of sciatica and fibromyalgia, release of deep chronic tension and anxiety, better sleep, increase of overall energy and stamina, shake loose of unconscious muscle contraction, improved circulation and flexibility, relief from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain.

TRE was developed by Dr. David Berceli, a bio-energetic therapist and social worker, who used it successfully worldwide working with soldiers, firefighters, police officers and survivors of war, natural disasters and other traumatic circumstances to help alleviate the many symptoms of post-traumatic stress. TRE is taught in over 40 countries worldwide.

TRE is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The exercises are simple and they can be modified to accommodate any body’s need. In this daylong workshop, participants will learn about the neurology, anatomy and physiology of stress and trauma, about the history and origin of TRE and how it helps release stress and contraction from the body. Also, by experiencing the tremor response twice, they will get a solid foundation to continue their practice at home.
