In July 2017, Alice took a substantial step towards expanding her offerings by completing the process to become a Certified TRE® Provider. Developed by David Berceli, PhD., TRE® stands for Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises. This series of 7 non-strenuous, easy to learn physical exercises is designed to activate a natural process to gently release stress and tension that has accumulated in our muscles and connective tissues - whether due to day-to-day life stress, past or ongoing chronic challenges, or sudden traumatic events. TRE® helps gradually down-regulate the nervous system, giving us the opportunity to find increased resilience, improved relationships, and more contentment.
Alice regulary incorporates TRE® into her own self-care routine as a complement to her running, walking, and yoga practices. She is particularly interested in sharing this highly effective technique with athletes, with parents of chronically ill children, with family and professional caregivers of Alzheimer's/dementia patients, and with adults whose childhoods (and hence their developing nervous systems) were impacted by adversities such as parental substance abuse or divorce.

Alice is also happy to offer individual TRE® sessions by appointment, including by Zoom during the coronavirus pandemic. This is a uniquely stressful time as we each cope with the isolation of physical distancing, on top of individual and collective health and economic concerns, the implications of our society's long history of racial and social injustice, political polarization, and concerns about climate change. I hope you'll consider adding TRE® to your self care routine. Please e-mail Alice at email@example.com or call her at 503.962.9994 to schedule a virtual session.
