What to Expect
After we schedule you will receive an email with intake paper work. Because trauma is the primary reason people come to see me it is important for me to know at least highlights of your background and current motivation for seeking treatment. Be sure to let me know if you are on medication, have physical injuries, are in a crisis or have a tendency toward depression or anxiety. I use the information to create a safe environment, modify exercises and generally know ways to provide containment specific to your situation. All of your information is kept confidential.
During your first session, you can expect to learn what TRE is, as well as a little history of how Dr. David Berceli developed the technique. Then, we will review your history and answer any questions you may have.
Once you feel comfortable, I will lead you through six modifiable exercises designed to fatigue the muscles and encourage the bodies natural neurogenic tremor. We continue the process with a short series of positions on the floor and give the body an opportunity to tremor in a more relaxed position. I will be present with you to answer any questions, provide support and containment, as well as observe your process.
The process usually takes about an hour. After your body has had an opportunity to tremor, I will guide you into a rest position to allow your body some time to integrate. We will then review your session, and I will make personalized recommendations. We like to say, “the tremor is the therapist,” and, over time, you will come to trust it to bring you relief and resilience.
I recommend a minimum of three individual guided sessions to establish your practice. For more complex trauma, or for people who prefer to work in a therapeutic setting, ten or more sessions are recommended. Once you feel confident and safe, you can integrate the process into your self-care routine at home.
After three guided sessions, you are welcome to join group sessions when they are available.
