When we practice the TRE exercises and find our natural tremors, tension is released without having to ‘work at it’ and allows the individual to feel, sense and inhabit their body without having to ‘think themselves’ there.
Feelings of defeat, hopelessness and helplessness are replaced by confidence, empowerment and hope.
I offer sessions to clients to help them understand trauma and how to use the TRE exercises to find their tremors in their body and to assist them to recover from overwhelming experiences such as overwork, stress, PTS symptoms, birth trauma, infertility, accidents, insomnia, domestic abuse, depression etc.
Individual TRE sessions are 1.5 hours. You will need to wear loose fitting clothing and it is advisable to only eat a light meal before you practice TRE.
I will provide water, a yoga mat and blankets/props where needed.
The session includes:
- Basic client history and what bought you to TRE
- A thorough grounding in the process and concepts of TRE
- Learning the TRE exercises which are very simple
- All the TRE exercises can be adapted to suit any age or body
- The TRE exercises are designed to elicit the body’s natural responses
- Finding your tremors and allowing the shake
- Full and deep relaxation and integration
- Feedback and discussion
Will I find my tremors? Will it work for me?
Many clients ask this! A lot of people think that they won’t be able to find their tremors or that their body ‘wont work’. Everyone I have worked who has come to a class or for private sessions has found their tremor. There is no right or wrong way to shake, it is your individual body expression and it is always a privilege to observe.
What are the tremors like?
Tremors can show up as shaking, vibrating, pulsing, twitching or tiny movements that I can’t see but you can feel inside. Movements can be big or small and usually feel very pleasant. The aim of TRE is to be present and aware of all your sensations. If it feels like its going too fast, then we slow it down. It is not a race or a catharsis, we are creating space to listen to our bodies. Tremors generally start in the legs an pelvis, but can show up anywhere. There is no right or wrong way to shake.
TRE Groups & Workshops
At TRE Groups we follow the same pattern as individual sessions with added group relaxation or guided meditation. My groups are always very slow, gentle, relaxed and informal. We usually have about 6-10 in a group.
One of the great benefits of shaking in a group is that TRE is a great leveller – we ALL have a shake.
Clients often report less stress overall in life, deeper longer sleep, loss of chronic pain and tension and even better sex lives as their bodies let go of decades of tightly held tension.
TRE is an amazing, deeply natural conversation with your body and applicable to everyone. I run a regular monthly group in Brockley South East London – to book click HERE
