TRE® is a body technique that through a few simple exercises activates a natural reflex mechanism of neurogenic tremors in the body. Those natural tremors release stress, tension and trauma, loosening the tensions that remain in the myofascial memory after stressful situations or traumatic life events.
This vibration automatically emerges from inside our body, reducing muscle tension, calming the nervous system and helping the person’s psychical and emotional stability. It is the body’s own response to self-regulate and heal itself.
One of the great advantages of this technique is that it does not require talking or remembering the traumatic or stressful experiences. The release happens through the body.
“With TRE® we can stimulate and accompany the body’s natural evolutionary drive towards a better state of health and well-being” (David Berceli)
The founder of TRE®, the North American David Berceli, who is considered an international expert in the areas of stress prevention, trauma and conflict resolution, has been teaching this technique for over 25 years, which is currently being practiced in more than 100 countries both at a social, occupational and therapeutic level.
David Berceli created TRE® based on observing the reaction of the human body to a situation of extreme danger in areas of conflict and war, where he developed his social work. He combined his solid academic background, his extensive experience in body and therapeutic work.
He currently participates with TRE® in stress and trauma recovery programs around the world, collaborating with numerous high-risk groups such as police and fire brigades or in health emergencies.
TRE®, like the latest findings in neuroscience, recognizes that reactions to traumatic events are an unconscious and instinctive response of the body to survive.
Neurological, biological, and anatomical changes occur without the conscious decision of the individual. The most primitive parts of the brain, limbic system and brain stem are activated, and in the face of all kinds of physical, mental, emotional or relational stress, neurotransmitters like adrenaline are released to help the body respond to that stress. The blood goes to the muscles that contract to react and respond with the fight and flight reactions, and when these are not possible, with the freeze reaction, which is an immobilization generated by other neurotransmitters such as endorphins, leaving the muscles “frozen” until the threat disappears.
Recent research on the effects of tremors on humans after suffering traumatic events are corroborated with previous research conducted with animals. “Neurogenic tremors in humans, as well as instinctual tremors in animals, are the natural response of an altered nervous system that attempts to restore the neuro-physiological homeostasis of the organism” (Feldman, 2004, Van der Kolk & Van der Hart, 1991).
As TRE® is a mechanism encoded in our DNA, neurogenic tremors activated by TRE® relax muscle tissue in a natural way. TRE® does nothing more than awaken and reactivate the natural mechanism of vibration latent in each one of us.
Throughout our lives, our muscles contract to protect us from what our mind-body feels is a threat. But when this tension is not released and becomes chronic, it does not allow the body to regain its full vitality in the present moment. Organic vitality is restricted by patterns of muscle tension.
These protective somatic reactions create a secondary psychological response to adapt and adjust to the new physiology.
Working directly with the primary responses and the most primitive parts of the brain, limbic system and brainstem, allows us to discharge deep muscular tension and, paying attention to the neuro-physiological process, the ego defenses can be minimized allowing the recovery proccess.
Since this muscle shaking mechanism is part of our natural behavior as human beings, we can all benefit from TRE®.
TRE® is practiced by children, adolescents and adults, workers from all sectors and occupations, as well as athletes, actors, the elderly, chronically ill and in recovery, etc.
Especially the professions linked to the care of people, such as teachers, therapists, doctors and other health personnel, etc. where there is a lot of involvement and therefore related stress.
The security forces, police, firefighters, civil protection, etc., also have a special interest in practicing it, since they release the tension or trauma typical of critical episodes of the profession and it gives them more stability and resilience for future situations.
Also, I want to emphasize that people in therapy who integrate the practice of TRE® in their process report more openness, stability and empowerment, facilitating and advancing their recovery, rebalancing and well-being process.

TRE® individual sessions last one hour and cost € 60. They can be done in person or online.
You can also access regular weekly sessions. Contact me to have schedules in Barcelona and Aiguafreda/Sant Martí de Centelles.
Introductory TRE® workshop in person in Sant Martí de Centelles on October 24 and 25, 2020 (12 hours) – It includes the theory and practice to be able to integrate TRE into your day-to-day life in an autonomous and safe way.
Intended for everyone, who, having experienced the benefits of TRE® in their own experience, wants to continue advancing and deepening this technique in order to teach and accompany other people and groups with TRE®.
The training consists of 4 modules that correspond to 4 weekends spread over a school year. These modules delve into the theoretical contents but above all in the accompaniment of each student in the practice of the TRE®, as well as in the supervision of the first practices facilitating the TRE® to other people.
To access this training, it is necessary to have completed the introductory TRE workshop (coordinated by the Spanish TRE association and the certification trainer) and justify autonomous personal practices carried out and recorded in a diary.
Once the training is completed, which in addition to attending the modules requires the completion of four sessions with a certified facilitator and eight supervisions of the sessions offered as practice during the training, you are accredited as a Certified TRE® Provider from David Berceli’s international TRE® LLC organization.

I feel deeply privileged for this opportunity to experience TRE in the introductory workshop.
You are a great teacher, you transmit in a clear, simple, and potent way all the benefits of the technique, and at the same time you offer everything necessary for the self-care of those who are learning it. It seems to me that the workshop has everything that is required for those who take it to really get to know and become aware of the potential and power of TRE. The format is very appropriate, as well as the topics seen in each session
I really liked how you handle trauma because you show it in a way that feels very natural. The videos seem super key to me because it is like a subtle journey of how natural it is to shake. I loved your presence and the way you checked on each person. I take with me how valuable contact with the subtle, self-regulation and the encounter with placidity is, a wonderful place that is not so easy for me to contact.

Hi Monica, good afternoon.
I wanted the days to pass so that what I had experienced in the Madrid workshop could settle down and I would be able to share this feeling that has accompanied me ever since.
Thank you for your expertise, simplicity of heart, warmth and closeness.
I realized that I acted, at first, like a wounded animal, it is an old story now, and that you knew how to give space for me to feel confident and open up, it always happens to me with groups, and, of course, it has to do with my personal history.
I am still with a severe touch to my heart, today I have cried a good time, thank God!, and I still am in love with that sensational tool that, with so much love, devotion I would say, you transmit.
Many thanks from my heart, many things were clear to me, and I hope it is only the beginning:
– the organic development,
– the need to listen,
– the ability to regulate, braking, when one feels it.
I sincerely hope that the training begins after the summer. Now, what remains is to integrate what has been lived, to give thanks once more and practice what has been learned. Thank you.
