Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®)
Tension and Trauma Release Exercises, TRE® is a method to activate our body’s natural muscular tremor reflex in order to release stored tension, stress and trauma from our nervous system. The therapeutic tremors that start to happen are a part of our body’s biological response to stress and trauma. By activating the tremor we are able to discharges the energy of stress or threat that is stored in the nervous system, muscles and fascia.
The TRE® targets the legs and specifically the psoas muscle. The psoas muscle is one of our main hip flexor muscles, part of our core muscle group and automatically contracts whenever our fight or flight response is activated. With the shaking and trembling that occurs we are able to unwind stuck holding patterns in our pelvis that then can travel up our spine, producing feelings of deep relaxation and reducing stress levels.
Trauma Release Exercises by itself are effective to release tension, in our experience they do not go as deep into the nervous system and muscles to release stuck trauma as the work we do with BBTRS. We want to encourage you to learn more about the Trauma Release and Trauma Healing work we do at the BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release Institute.
