TREĀ® (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises) Certification Training

Module 1: December 1-3, 2017 | $450 by 10/15/17 $500 after | Register


Maria Alfaro

TRE® is a simple, gentle and profound technique that facilities the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional tension and stress. The TRE exercises tire the legs, triggering an involuntary shaking and trembling response, called Self Induced Therapeutic Tremors (SITT). The tremors begin in the legs and often spread throughout the body. This natural response is the nervous system's way of discharging long-held tension and unconscious body contraction (due to both everyday stress and traumatic life experiences), to restore the body to wholeness. Most people describe the experience as pleasant and relaxing and report many improvements in their physical and emotional states.

TRE has been created in war zones by Dr. David Berceli, a clinical social worker and bioenergetic therapist, to alleviate the many symptoms of PTSD and it has been successfully for almost three decades in over 40 countries worldwide.

The TRE Global Certification Program will prepare you to teach TRE safely and professionally both in individual and group settings.
If you are seeking a somatic technique to enrich your healing practice, the program could be a good choice for you. If you are not a professional health care provider but you still want to learn how to share TRE with others, the program will give you the competencies to do so.

Those who certify in this program will be called "Certified TRE® Providers" and will have the competency needed to teach both individuals and groups globally.  The first module introduces the anatomy, neurology and physiology of stress and trauma as it relates to TRE and the tremoring process. Participants will learn about the latest research on the nervous system and also containment, grounding and self regulating strategies. This is an experiential training with a strong focus on the trainee's personal tremoring experience.

Each training module provides 18 CEUs to massage therapists and body workers nationally. The whole training program a total of 36 CEUs.

COST of Certification Training:

Module 1 - December 1 - 3, 2017.  $525 | This module is open to the public and can be attended for personal healing.

Module 2 - March 16-18, 2018.  $525 | This module is only available to trainees who are enrolled in the certification program.

$500 is the Early Bird rate, must be paid in full by September 15 for Module I and January 30, 2018 for Module II.

Maria Alfaro is a senior TRE® and Neurogenic Yoga™ Certification Trainer certified by Dr. David Berceli, the creator of TRE®.  Over the past 14 years Maria taught TRE® to thousands of people in the US, in Europe, in Canada and in the Middle East and led dozens of trainings worldwide.
