Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises
What is TRE®
How TRE® works
What to expect in a session
In your first meeting with Dr. Heather Abernethy, you will discuss your individual needs and concerns. She will answer your questions and ensure that you are feeling comfortable and safe before beginning the exercises.
TRE® aims to empower practitioners to embrace their inner healer. Typically clients meet with Dr. Abernethy at least three times to develop comfort with the tremor mechanism. During these sessions, the client will learn how to safely perform the exercises, and will have the support of Dr. Abernethy should any sensations, emotions, and memories surface.
Parent and Baby Bonding
Parents bond with their babies through a process called co-regulation. When a parent has a calm, reliable and nurturing nervous system, the baby senses this and learns how to soothe and manage their distressing sensations and emotions. Whether after a traumatic or unexpected birth experience or following the adoption process, TRE® provides valuable co-regulation opportunities. With the tremor mechanism, the parent is able to share their level of calm with their baby, syncing nervous systems and deepening the parent/child bond.
“When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it’s our job to share our calm, not join their chaos.” — L.R. Knost
Dr. Abernethy worked in a very busy Obstetric practice for 16 years where she witnessed firsthand how many women were disheartened when their deliveries did not go as they had hoped or planned. This can lead to a parent’s and baby’s nervous system being dysregulated and out of sync. TRE® can help release what happened in the past and bring about a calm acceptance and peace in the present.
