What is TRE?
Tension & Trauma Release Exercises(TRE®) are a simple and accessible, yet powerfully effective way to release stress, whether that stress is manifested physically, emotionally or mentally. TRE® is a series of 7 simple exercises that evoke Neurogenic tremors(vibration, shaking) which are a safe and healthy way to discharge stress and calm the nervous system. The exercises can be modified for any body type or disability.
Breaking down old tension patterns in the body with shaking, we allow our systems to create new patterns of being and balance. Building on a foundation of understanding, you may be able to find new perspectives on what the stress in your system has been trying to tell you.
Desmond is a Certified TRE Provider and Yoga teacher who specializes in stress management strategies. Desmond is a proponent of life-long learning who was first motivated to explore alternative health practices as a substitute to pharmaceuticals after being diagnosed with severe arthritis in his early 20’s. With his regular personal practice of TRE® Desmond was able to dampen severe road-rage and other anger-related issues as well as regain a level of physical autonomy after losing a great deal of mobility post-diagnosis.
All of Desmond’s offerings will revolve around the practice of slowing down and being in the present moment. Desmond believes that the only place to heal is in the here and now, and the cultivation of grounded presence and increased self-awareness is essential in this process.
