Announcing an upcoming workshop at The STUDIO:

at THE STUDIO at The Haven Wellness Resort & Spa, located in Bajo Boquete
Instructor: Joy Alexander

TRE® is an innovative series of exercises that help the body to release deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, TRE safely triggers a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, and calms down the nervous system. When the 'tremor mechanism' is activated in a secure and controlled environment, the body is motivated to return back to a state of balance.
TRE is a somatic body based practice especially effective for people suffering with stress, anxiety, trauma or PTSD. It doesn't require talking about an event, feeling or issue, therefore it overcomes the language barriers that can bring up added stress.
TRE is based on the findings that stress, tension and trauma are both psychological and physical. The reflexive muscle vibrations in TRE are known to feel pleasant and soothing. After doing TRE, the majority of people report feeling peaceful with a sense of well-being.
• You will learn about neurogenic tremors -- our body's natural inbuilt recovery system.
• What TRE is, why it was developed, and how it works.
• TRE’s set of seven safe, simple tension & trauma releasing exercises that are designed to trigger the body’s ‘tremor mechanism’ 
• You will have an experience of activating the neurogenic tremor in a supportive group environment. 
• You will leave with a self-help tool that you can use to regulate your own nervous system -- as needed!
This class will be a review and practice of the TRE exercises... with another opportunity to experience the 'tremor mechanism'. We will also discuss 'next steps' for those who want to continue with self-lead or guided sessions.
