My workday averages about 12 hours (sometimes 14 and even 16) nearly every day as we build our business. My work requires a lot of concentration. It’s stressful. Add to this a good bit of traffic, travel, meetings, and deadlines, and it takes a toll. TRE helps me take a moment to relax, clear my head, and refocus whenever necessary. I’m so glad I found it and can't imagine what my days might be without TRE.
I was lucky enough to meet Mary when she attended a yoga class I was teaching. As we talked afterward, I discovered her connection to David Berceli's TRE program, which I'd read about but never tried. Mary generously invited me to a TRE lesson, where I felt the power of the exercises, as well as the bliss of the shaking practice, for myself. Over the years, I've been impressed by Mary's knowledge of the body, by her expertise in the TRE system, and by her compassion. I recommend her to anyone seeking somatic-based stress reduction instruction.
As a veteran recently discharged from the Navy, I struggled with homelessness, substance abuse, and finding balance in my life. Traditional treatments helped, but could only take me so far. TRE has opened me up to a mind-body connection that has allowed me to not only overcome the barriers in my life, but to truly thrive! Thank you!
