The Healing Power of Trauma Releasing Exercises
TRE® stands for Trauma Releasing Exercises. It is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. The exercises safely activate a natural therapeutic shaking response in the body called Neurogenic Tremoring. Neurogenic Yoga, a sister method of TRE, combines yoga asana and pranayama to activate this Neurogenic Tremoring/body’s natural shaking response. This shaking response in humans, much the same as the instinctual shaking in animals, is the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension and trauma, or unconscious muscle contraction in order to restore the body to wholeness. When the nervous system identifies a threat, vibration or shaking in the body is designed to occur automatically. However, negative social constructs and beliefs around what it means to allow ourselves to shake, tremor, or show vulnerability, condition us out of this innate release mechanism at a very early age. 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. This practice reawakens our body’s intrinsic release mechanism for optimal health. TRE/Neurogenic Yoga is a simple, gentle and profound practice that facilitates the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle, the release of physical and emotional stress and tension, releasing stored trauma from the body, and allows for a reset of the nervous system.
