How your Body Deals with Stress

-Tension Release Exercises

Are you suffering from..

  • Anxiety?
  • Back Pain
  • Muscle Tension?
  • PTSD?
  • Thyroid problems?

The body is an amazing organism which has the ability to heal itself.
When it has a trauma or cumulative stress,we inhibit the natural healing process by holding the stress or trauma in the body. By holding on to the trauma it can manifest on a physical level such as a bad back,neck issues, thyroid problems and even depression just to name a few symptoms.
Its simple exercises to help individuals release tension from the muscles, which in turn relaxes the anxiety of our minds, by evoking a muscular shaking process in the body.

Originally developed and named ‘Trauma Release Exercises‘ by Dr David Bercelli, as a self-empowering trauma recovery process for large populations in the third world, it also came to be known as ‘Tension Release Exercises‘ for it’s ability to reduce chronic stress, muscular tension, anxiety and pain (especially in the low back and pelvis.)

As the tremors work by releasing the defensive muscle patterns held in the core of the body (either over active, tight and rigid or under active, weak and numb) they have also become known and applied as ‘Core Release Exercises‘ for their ability to re-awaken and maintain our bodies natural dynamic core stability.

Once learnt the process is immediately effective and self empowering as it provides a free resource for the rest of our lives to regularly renew ourselves to a more calm, relaxed and balanced state.

Most people have experienced involuntary shaking (neurogenic tremors) such as ‘shaking like a leaf’ or ‘knocking knees’ after a severe shock or fright, when extremely nervous (such as before public speaking) or even in moments of extreme excitement and joy.

The tremors are the central nervous system’s innate way of discharging excessive tension through the rapid muscle contraction and relaxation of the tremors to calm the body down from an over excited adrenal state.

Neurogenic tremors are innate to all mammals and are easily observed as a horse sends a tremor through its’ entire body after a fall. Other examples are gazelles shaking after escaping a lion attack, ducks flapping their wings after a fight or the rapid vibration felt holding a scared rabbit or guinea pig.

In most cultures these tremors are seen as a sign of weakness and vulnerability, tending to be suppressed or avoided resulting in chronic pain and tension rather than allowing them to organically restore the body to balance.

Once learnt the process is immediately effective and self empowering as it provides a free resource for the rest of our lives to regularly renew ourselves to a more calm, relaxed and balanced state.

TRE can benefit anyone who has experienced any type of trauma who is experiencing emotional stress, physical pain or chronic tension in their body. TRE promotes better sleep, improved energy and endurance while reducing stress, physical tension, muscular pain and general worry and anxiety.
