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 eight years…

TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises)

TRE is a simple yet powerful technique involving basic exercises to fatigue the leg muscles and core, initiating 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. Benefits include: deeper relaxation, help with sleep, relief of physical tension and pain, and improvement in digestive function (if stress related).

Usually a session will be relaxing, there can be unusual 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. It is also a practice to develop self-regulation (feeling safe in our body, and listening to our body’s signals).

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.

TRE Investment

$110 for Initial 1.5hr session (Plus $10 for the booklet), then only $50 for ongoing sessions (2 more recommended).

Total for 3 sessions + booklet =$220.

Body-Oriented Trauma Therapy

Using Somatic Experiencing® techniques & Neurophysiology, 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. Kali has also trained in Kathy Kain’s “Touch work for Trauma”, and can work directly with areas of the body that contain dysregulation, eg the lungs in asthma, or the digestive organs.

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.
