Intro to TRE® – Denver
This in-depth intro class covers Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®). These simple exercises can assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and the physical effects of trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating which has a calming effect on the nervous system. TRE is designed to be a self-help tool that once learned, can be used to promote resiliency and better autonomic nervous system regulation.
More information about TRE® can be found on their website: https://traumaprevention.com/
