TRE® and Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch modality that helps to release stored tension in the body resulting in greater ease and flow within the entire body and nervous system. By tuning into the craniosacral rhythm of the cerbrospinal fluid to check for frequency, amplitude and symmetry, and lightly touching the fascia and bones to check for ease of movement, we can begin to release tension, discomfort, and stress in the body and nervous system. As the tension begins to release, the nervous system can regulate back into more parasympathetic mode, helping to decrease stress, pain and inflammation. Clients are fully clothed the entire session and it is even possible to work off the body if this is more comfortable for the client.
TRE® Trauma Releasing Exercises
TRE® is a series of 7 exercises developed by Dr. David Berceli to release tension stored deep in the body by activating the Psoas muscle and tremor response in the body. The best description of how this process works is straight from Dr Berceli,
"The Psoas muscles are a particular set of muscles considered the fight/flight muscles... During any traumatic experience, the psoas muscles contract to protect the underbelly of the (body). These muscles, that connect the back with the pelvis and the legs, remain contracted until the danger is over. To heal from trauma contractions, these deep set of muscles must shake out their protective tension to relax. When the shaking response of the psoas muscles is evoked at this powerful center of the body it reverberates throughout the entire body looking for deep chronic tension in its path and naturally dissolving it."
Some beneficial results from this process can be greater resiliency to stress, better sleep, decreased hypervigilance, increased self-regulation and embodiment, better vagal tone, and increased social engagement.
However, it is important to know that some people can have adverse or strong physical and/or emotion responses after doing TRE. It is my desire and goal to make this a safe and positive experience. I will provide you with as much information as possible so you can make an informed decision. Likewise, it's important for me to know some background information about you so we can both decide if this is the right modality for you.
With that being said, this modality has been one of the most effective modalities for calming my nervous system down, increasing my energy, and having consistent sleep.
