TRE with Kali Foster

Acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine can be very helpful for stress & health management (see Specialty Areas) but Kali would like to introduce to you an exciting new technique she has been teaching for the past six years…

TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises)

TRE is an amazing, cutting-edge technique involving simple exercises to fatigue the leg muscles and initiate an involuntary, ‘neurogenic’ tremor. This tremor is builds apon itself and releases tension in the muscles of the legs, thighs, groin and glutes, and can move up the body, through the abdominal muscles and diaphragm, to the neck and shoulders, releasing muscles anywhere where there is held tension.

After a session many people report feeling more centered or grounded, relaxed, free of hip or back tension, and sleep more deeply. Improvement with anxiety & digestive bloating or discomfort is often reported as well. Usually a session will be relaxing, there can be strong sensations as the tremor moves the body, but never any pain or strong discomfort. Occasionally the practice will bring up emotions, and we just witness them, stopping if we become too overwhelmed. The key is to stay present in the body, in the here and now. This is the only place we can heal from!

Kali Foster teaches the practice and usually recommends 3 sessions, spaced out over 3-4 weeks. You can do the practice at home, and come back to check in, tremor under supervision, ask any questions that arise, etc. Group Yoga & TRE classes for further training and support are also available.

TRE is a neurological tremor that animals and young children do naturally after a traumatic experience. As adult humans, with complex brains in a complex society, we have suppressed the natural down-regulating role of the parasympathetic nervous system, that calms us. Because of this, traumatic experiences & long term stress are often held, unresolved in our muscles, like a charge of adrenaline under the surface. TRE begins to unlock this tension and set us free.

TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises)

Body-Oriented Trauma Therapy

Using Somatic Experiencing® techniques, Kali offers insights into the workings of the nervous system when it comes to pain, anxiety or trauma. She will guide you through simple yet highly effective body-oriented methods to calm and regulate the nervous system, experience greater capacity to be with unpleasant sensations, including pain, and gain clarity over your situation. This is a more gentle approach than TRE® and may be recommended as a starting point, especially for those who experience dissociation or feel disconnected from their bodies.

Body-Oriented Trauma Therapy sessions are charged at the same rate as Acupuncture or TCM, and can be in conjunction with Acupuncture or bodywork (allow 90mins for that). You can book online with Kali on Mondays, Thursdays & Fridays.
