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 much more than a simple stress-relief technique. It switches off the fight/flight/freeze response but it also wakes up parts of the body which are constricted or numb, leading us to literally feel more ‘whole’. It switches on our “social engagement system” too (ventral vagus nerve), which leads to less social anxiety and better relationships. Added bonus: this relaxed state is the ideal state for learning and creativity to occur!
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
- 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.
