psoas 3What is TRE© (Trauma Releasing Excercises)….?    TRE© is a gentle, simple and profound technique that facilitates the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle. This relaxation provides a very effective release of physical and emotional tension and stress. The psoas is a very thick, deep and stubborn muscle that acts as a guardian of our lower belly. In its role as protector of our organs, it contracts and tightens, becoming shorter, in response to life’s small and big traumatic experiences. A tight psoas can cause many problems including sciatica and lower back pain. The TRE© exercises work the legs, tiring them and creating a trembling response, which begins in the legs and often spreads throughout the body. This gentle shaking is actually the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension or unconscious muscle contraction in order to restore the body to wholeness. 

Benefits from TRE© release of deep chronic tension increase of overall energy and stamina “shake loose” unconscious involuntary muscle contraction discharge of buried emotional and physical trauma deep relaxation and improved circulation improved mood and decrease of aches and pains increase of the body sensitivity to pleasure improved sense of being grounded the healing of sciatica increased flexibility

TRE© is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness and the TRE© exercises can be modified to accommodate anybody’s needs. Deep breathing help direct people’s awareness out of their heads and into their bodies. The body’s wisdom then does the rest.  This session does NOT include any yoga postures.
