Somatic education, stimulating trauma releasing mechanisms

Jude Driscoll, a physical therapist from Prince Edward Island, Canada, and her husband Frank, a most talented handyman, stayed with us almost a week. She shared her knowledge and practice of TRE, Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises, created by Dr. David Berceli, very easy exercises based on the premise that the body has the mechanisms or knows how to experience stressful or traumatic events and thus defend itself, and also how to recover from those events and go back to healthy functioning.

The TRE is a method to evoke the natural relaxation processes. I am certainly studying and practicing these exercises and welcome TRE practitioners to come visit. Jude is already planning to come back for two weeks in December, 2011. Anyone interested in learning and practicing this method can join us.
