About TRE sessions

“Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (or TRE®) is a simple yet innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.”        From https://trescotland.com

  • Max number of participants: 10
  • How to book: Please email the facilitator a week beforehand. He needs to send you an ‘intake’ form which asks for example about any injuries or recent surgery in support of your safety.

More about donations

Participation in our community-led events is on a voluntary ‘by donation’ basis. This means that nobody is expected to make a payment if they cannot afford to do so. However any donations received will be shared between the Centre and the facilitator, helping to make the events’ programme sustainable as well as to provide some reciprocity towards community facilitators’ time and skills offered.

Where a “suggested donation” is listed, this is just an indication of what the event might cost if it was ticketed – it is fine to donate less (or nothing at all). Donating is one way to show your appreciation for the value of the Salisbury Centre. Please consider ‘paying it forward’ by donating a bit extra helping to keep it possible for everyone to take part, whatever their circumstances.

If you cannot afford, please get in touch with the facilitator to request a free/discounted place.

If you sign up for a course that carries on over several weeks or months, whatever you’re contribution, please show your commitment by attending or letting the facilitator know when you’re not able to attend. Facilitators may decide to cancel a meeting if in their view there’s insufficient participation to make it worthwhile. Participants will be notified.

About the Facilitator (Charan Pradhan):

As a professional dance artist and bodyworker (Martial Arts, Meditation and Yoga) I am always curious about the body, and came across TRE in 2016. I wanted to find out more about how a simple technique can lead to tremoring so that the body releases stored past and daily stress and can fix itself where damaged. I decided to learn this technique and share it widely. I have been teaching it to school teachers in South and North Lanarkshire, and hold individual and community group sessions in Edinburgh, sometimes combined with dance. I have taught larger groups throughout Nepal. It is fascinating to observe this natural tremoring within the body, where each body responds differently. There seem to be no adverse side effect and many people report great benefit. I see it as valuable because people who take it on as a daily practice need only do it for 5-15 minutes.
