What to Know about T.R.E.®
About the Session
Bring a yoga mat, water, and wear comfortable clothes. Parts of T.R.E.® are standing up, and parts are done while laying on the floor.
An amazing part about T.R.E.® is that it can be done ONLINE through Zoom, in the comfort of your own home. No travel time needed!
The Psoas Muscle
T.R.E.® targets a release of this key muscle - also called the fight/flight/freeze muscle. When you experience stress or trauma, the psoas responds by tightening. It can remain in this state, which can cause problems from back pain to poor digestion to exhaustion. Through release of the psoas muscle, T.R.E.® restores the nervous system to a calm, relaxed state.
RELEASE through Movement
Okay, I get that this may sound different! :) But that's because we've been culturally "trained" to suppress what is naturally occurring in our bodies. Chattering teeth, shaking hands, butterflies in the stomach, knees knocking... these are all ways the brain, body and nervous system are trying to release toxic stress. T.R.E.® gives the body a way to release that stored up stress that never got released - even stress from years ago that is affecting your body and emotions today, but you may not know it!
People describe the movements like "shivering". It's similar to the movement that is created by electro-stim therapy: a gentle, repetitive contraction-and-release of the muscles.
The first few sessions, the contraction-and-release movement may stay in the legs. Then it may move to the upper body and extremities. Everyone's experience is different!
The key is... this is a safe, fun and relaxing process, and you are completely in control the entire time.
The Goal, The Lifestyle
T.R.E.® is different in that it is a self-help tool. This is a tool that can be incorporated into your lifestyle in a way that strengthens your nervous system over time. Once you feel comfortable, you can practice the T.R.E.® at home on your own.
IT'S LIKE HAVING THE ABILITY TO GET A MASSAGE ANY TIME AND ANY WHERE.
I'm here to guide and facilitate as long as you need so you can experience deep levels of RELEASE of tension & toxic stress.
