TRE (Tension & Trauma Release Exercise) is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, 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.
TREmble was founded to bring Dr. David Bercelli’s revolutionary method of TRE® (Trauma Releasing Exercise) to the world in an affordable, accessible, and user friendly way. We are committed to spreading education about our bodies’ natural abilities to self regulate and heal from stressful and traumatic events. We envision a world where everyone has the tools to overcome life’s challenges, while building more resiliency for the future, individually and collectively.
Letter from the Founder
Five years ago I found myself with a host of symptoms that I couldn’t explain. I was emotionally numb, had socially isolated myself, anxious, hypervigilant, had trouble sleeping, and found myself not able to connect to myself, others or the world around me. I felt broken and the world seemed like a very scary place.
It all seemed to start after my accident. I was in a paragliding crash and had to endured 8 hours of spinal cord surgery. Luckily I am okay now, but months in nuero rehab unit learning to walk again. The event was so difficult for my handle that I psychologically checked out, and stayed that way, disassociated, for years.
Of course, I sought medical and psychological help. However, it seemed like talking to a therapist about the event only made things worse. I then started exploring other modalities and methods that could potentially work. In fact, I tried 45 different modalities. I became so frustrated that nothing was working and all the time and money I was spending. However, everything changed when I tried TRE® (Trauma Releasing Exercises). I finally got the results I was looking for. My life changed forever.
After my nervous system reached homeostasis and I felt well again. I started training under some of the top trauma healers in the country. The results I started getting were incredible. I was getting life changing results in a single session. Ph.D. clinical psychologist and medical physicians were coming to me as patients. I was the therapists’ therapist. I soon traveled around the world helping large groups of people. I was then invited to work with Navy Seals as well as Prison Inmates in San Quentin to work with some of the people have had the most stressful lives. This was a challenge, however, was extremely rewarding and improved my skills even more.
After practicing the method locally in San Diego in a private practice as well as large groups, I decided to expand my practice to help people all around the world through telehealth. Until this point, I had worked at two telemedicine companies where I assisted medical physicians in serving ten thousand patients internationally. I put my two passions together, TRE® and digital health to become the leading online provider in TRE®.
