Trauma Release Exercise

Some experiences we encounter cause intense stress and tension in our body. If we are unable to change the circumstances or receive treatment in the way of resolution, these situations would cause that strees turns into mental physical trauma. As these stress accumulations can have great consequences in our body, with the accumulation of minor effects, they can turn into mentally depressive states in total and into key points in our body such as a physically active contraction / pain / nodal point. Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) is based on the basic idea supported by research that stress, tension and trauma are both psychological and physical at same time. TRE applications are the stresses that are released from the body by physical oscillations and vibrations that occur as a result of a number of exercises for the treatment of these tensions accumulated in the body. This technique is designed to help release the deep tension created in the body during a traumatic experience or through chronic stress.

TRE was created by psychologist Dr. David Berceli who observes war-traumatized communities in the Middle East and Africa. He discovered that by activating the body’s natural tremor mechanism to release trauma, the need for psychotherapy or medication to control post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is decreased. Accordingly, he has lived extensively in Israel / Palestine, Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Yemen, Egypt and Lebanon and worked by providing trauma relief workshops and designing recovery programs for international organizations around the world.

Steve Haines is a leading TRE provider with training in various locations around the world. “Shaking is normal and hugely beneficial,” he explains. “You see animals do it after a stressful encounter, yet we’ve forgotten how to access it. Under stress, your body is stuck in fight, flight or freeze which affects every system in your body; your heart rate, muscles and nervous system are all geared up to make you react quickly in response to danger. This response can remain in the body long after the event and become chronic. TRE can reset these systems.”

TRE consists of seven simple exercises that induce a natural tremor reflex in the body. (In case of lack of competence to perform the movements, the movement series can be revised and changed by experts in the field.) After performing the exercises related to a certain number of repetitions, lie down on the ground. The legs take the butterfly position (baddha konasana from yoga positions) and the feet are pulled towards the hips. The tremor response begins when you slowly bring your knees together. To find the vibration, you open and close your legs with very slow movements and find the relevant stopping point. The tremor usually starts in the legs and can move the spine upwards. In this way, the upper body and arms can also be involved in the swing movement. If the tremor becomes too strong, do not panic. This shaking state is the part where the application is healing, it should not be forgotten that it is the discharge of tensions in the body. It is also possible to control vibrations with leg movements. Afterwards, rest on the mat (savasana from yoga positions) to allow your mind and body to calm down. This is important for the combination of your healing with your body.

TRE’s reflexive muscle vibrations are generally pleasant and soothing. It has been observed that after performing TRE, feelings such as peace, relaxation, calmness and comfort are revealed in many people. It is stated that there are thousands of people who have recovered mentally and physically with this method. During the learning and experience phase, it is important to get support from experts in the field and to apply the movement series in the right positions to prevent damage to the body. When this muscle shaking / vibration mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return to a state of equilibrium.

It is thought that after gaining experience in flow, the person can use it independently when needed throughout his life, thus continuously supporting personal health and well-being, and this method can be used as a self-help tool.

You can listen to the video interviews with the opinions of the people in the following study areas, who have tried the TRE application and gave feedback on its effect on them, and you can read detailed studies on the subject on the same link.
