After 22 years working in the healthcare industry, Karen Colasuonno became the mother of a special needs child. Wanting more for her child than symptom relief, she began an eight-year journey to discover how today’s environment affects our bodies and sensory system. Discovering the positive and negative effects of common household practices and basic nutritional routines, she delved deeply into the root causes of many of the childhood ailments we encounter today. In 2008, Karen began a consulting business to help others learn about safe and natural approaches to treatment.
Introduced to TRE in 2012, Karen is a graduate of the TRE LA certification program and is a Certified TRE Provider. She incorporates TRE into her daily practice and has seen tremendous results from clients. Balanced Living Is So Simple (BLISS) is the basic principle of her consulting practice, which combines TRE with nutritional and holistic counseling.
As a Certified TRE Provider, Karen offers:
- Private instruction
- Group instruction
- Location: East San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire

My first experience with TRE was because of (an injury)—I fell down my stairs and landed right on my elbow. The pain was pretty constant but I figured it would go away on its own and it was probably just bruised. After several weeks, the pain actually got worse; I wasn't able to sleep and any pressure on my arm sent a shooting pain that felt like needles. I had it x-rayed and the doctor wanted to keep me on Ibuprofen. Nothing seemed to help and it was starting to interfere with my work. Finally, Karen convinced me to try TRE. My arm felt back to normal after only a few sessions. I couldn't believe it. I've continued doing TRE in group settings and on my own, and will continue to make it a part of my life.
I started TRE about a year ago. I enjoyed it, but one day I woke up in excruciating pain, not knowing where it came from or how. I spoke with my instructor, Karen, and she encouraged me to join a group. It helped. Karen brought to my attention that my left shoulder and hand and even fingers affected by the injury were showing concentrated shaking. Slowly I started to feel better. Although the doctors wanted to do neck surgery, I was convinced I was improving, and my follow-up appointments were reflecting that. I had a breakthrough during group TRE—I had a huge release, and slowly, over the course of a few weeks, the numbness in my fingers dissipated completely. No surgery needed! Karen is such a wonderful person, friend, and TRE instructor. I am truly indebted to her for introducing TRE to me.
As someone who has been actively engaged in the health and wellness field for many years, I was very impressed and encouraged by TRE. One of the things that really stood out to me about this therapeutic technique is how it puts individuals in touch with their own healing capacity. There isn't a healer "out there" who is going to make everything alright. Instead, each individual is the healer, working at his or her own pace, allowing the magic of TRE to do its work in its own way and time. This kind of work requires a good teacher, however—someone who is invested in each person's graceful transition to better health and well-being without getting caught up in the "teacher knows best" mentality. Karen Colasuonno approaches clients in exactly this way. As a Wellness Director at a fairly large continuing care retirement community, I had Karen come and present a series of classes to our residents. I was delighted to see her ease with older adults and also her ability to quickly modify the TRE movements and exercises to the needs of my residents. Karen is incredibly warm, passionate about wellness, enthusiastic about TRE, and very skilled as an instructor. I can't imagine having had a better TRE instructor than Karen, and I know she is doing much to help the world heal itself.
