UPDATE: At the moment I’m teaching TRE via Skype. This works brilliantly, providing you can angle your computer screen camera so that I can see your yoga mat!

You can book a ‘Learn TRE’ session if you are a complete beginner, or a ‘Refresher’ session if you have already learnt TRE and would like to deepen your home practice.

IMPORTANT NOTE: New clients will need to complete a short health questionnaire to ensure it is safe for them to learn TRE online. Online sessions are not suitable for people with major medical or mental health conditions, or a history of complex or severe trauma.

Person doing TRE

What happens during an appointment?

We’ll start with a chat about your health and wellbeing and what you would like to get from the session. I’ll explain what TRE is and how it works, and then I’ll guide you through a series of exercises which will gently stretch and tire your muscles. The final exercise involves lying down with the soles of your feet together in order to start the tremoring mechanism. This is where the magic happens! We’ll spend some time noticing the different reactions in your body, and we’ll practise stopping and starting the tremors. Finally, we’ll finish with a period of relaxation in order for your body to integrate the effects of the session.

What will I feel?

You might experience a mixture of things, from small vibrations and tremors to larger movements and ‘stretches’. You might also feel sensations such as heat or tingling. Most people find TRE to be relaxing and pleasurable (some even feel an urge to laugh or giggle!).

What benefits can I expect?

TRE is more than a simple stress-relief technique. It wakes up parts of the body which are constricted or numb, leading us to literally feel more ‘whole’. It also switches on our “social engagement system” (ventral vagus nerve), which leads to less social anxiety and better relationships.

Practising TRE regularly can affect you on many different levels:

  • Less anxiety
  • Clearer thinking
  • Quieter mind
  • More energy
  • Better sleep
  • Improved digestion
  • Less muscle pain
  • Increased flexibility
  • Better relationships & social interaction
  • Greater creative expression
  • Feeling more alive and ‘whole’

Follow up sessions

Once you start practising TRE at home regularly you might notice that your practice goes through peaks and troughs and/or that your tremoring gets ‘stuck’ in a certain pattern. During a follow up session I can see how your tremors are developing, answer any questions you might have, discuss which shaking ‘dose’ is right for you, and show you how to invite the tremors into different parts of the body.
