Releasing Tension and Trauma to Achieve Wellness

Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) is a modality that activates the body’s built-in shaking mechanism, called neurogenic tremors, which causes the muscles to relax. Relaxing tense muscle patterns reduces stress in the spine, neck, shoulders and pelvis. When tension is released anywhere in the body, the brain registers a reduction in pain signals, producing new hormones that promote healing, improve sleep and build resilience.

Built-up tension is said by some to be the cause of many chronic illnesses. Anyone that can do light exercise can do TRE. The practice is easily learned and can be done at home on a regular basis.

Pat Ambrosic, MsE, and Diann Shively, LMT, are licensed TRE facilitators. Regular TRE group and individual sessions are available in Tucson and Green Valley.

For more information, call Shively at 520-625-8312, email [email protected]; or Ambrosic at 216-785-4770, email [email protected]. Visit
