Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) Instructor
TRE is a series of gentle exercises that activate the body's innate mechanism for stress release and trauma healing. I teach people how to self-induce this mechanism via the exercises, and then to self-regulate the experience so they can heal their trauma without re-experiencing it.
