TRE Tension/Traum Releasing Exercises

Release, Relax, Rejuvenate with these 7 easy to learn exercises

TRE® is an innovative series of 7 exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma.

The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, and calms down the nervous system.

TRE®’s reflexive muscle vibrations generally feel pleasant and soothing and many people report feelings of peace and well-being after a session of shaking.

TRE® is designed to be a self-help tool that, once learned, can be used independently as needed throughout one’s life, thereby continuously supporting and promoting personal health and wellness.

While you can learn the exercises from the video or book working with a TRE provider can be very supportive in learning and deepening the shaking response and People who have experienced trauma are advised to learn the exercises from a provider.

About Nora

17212180_1449350741741888_1412455210084694064_o_edited.jpg

I am an Esalen® Massage Thrapist and Teacher and a Certified TRE® provider.

I have devoted my life to the exploration of body, mind and spirit.

I discovered my love for touch when I watched my father receive a massage when I was about 6 years old and finally learnt the art of massage in 2001 at the Esalen Institute.

Arriving at Esalen in 1999 was a life changer. Through Esalen massage, dancing 5 Rythms and practicing gestalt awareness I opened up to the the grief my body held about the loss of my father 13 years earlier when I was only 18.

I felt deeply gifted and moved to learning how to hold a space in which healing could happen through attuned touch and presence.

I lived and studied at Esalen for 3 years, became a Esalen massage crew member and practiced massage at the famous Esalen hot spring bath for 15 years and have been teaching Esalen Massage at Esalen and Internationally since 2005.

I was introduced to TRE in 2013 and found it was an incredible tool for self regulation which is why I decided to add it to my offerings as I would like my clients to be able to have tools to regualte their own nervous sythem.

In all of my work it is my intention to create a save space in which change can happen through awareness.
