The workshop

This Women's workshop day includes  a TRE session  facilitated by Deborah Maddison and Whole Woman Body movement facilitated by Jacqui Storm (this session incorporates Jacqui's chiropractic and yoga expertise - more info about Jacqui's session coming soon).  

The day will be a deep dive into embodiment with cutting edge information and practice, designed to bypass the mind's control and allow the body to relax from tension and stress, release what is held and reset the nervous system and posture.  Jacqui and Deborah both have many years experience of holding safe, present and compassionate space for clients, and aim to make this day deeply nurturing for all women.  This day is particularly suitable for those women who wish to empower themselves to release stress, trauma and menopausal symptoms as well as those who simply enjoy meeting the body's energy patterns and allowing them to dissolve so that life can move.

T.R.E. (Total Release Experience)

T.R.E. is a powerful and yet simple way to access the body's ability to shake off tension and stress. It's a physical practice, in which we trigger the tremoring through simple stretches and muscle stress exercises, then lie on a mat and allow the body to release, in a sustained, yet controlled and gentle way. Many clients describe is as feeling like a massage from the inside out and it reaches the parts that cannot be easily reached, including the fascia. It's a "bottom up" approach, where the nerves let go of stress and tension, and communicate this release via the spinal chord to the brain, allowing brain and mind to be calm.  Every exercise can be modified to suit individual clients, and you are completely in control of your own process and participation at all times; so you learn how to initiate tremors and also how to stop the process.

As a "no-talking" practice, there is no need to talk about any of your reasons for attending, although you are welcome to share any information and ask questions if you wish. Simply come, learn the practice and leave with all you need to start safe and effective home practice.

Dr Peter Levine discovered the stress and tension busting secret of tremoring whilst working as stress consultant to NASA. He realised that autonomic shaking (in the way animals do) allows the nervous system to "stand down" and restore homeostasis (balance) (You can read his words below).

As our innate physiological release method it's the "fast-track" to releasing tension from the body and mind; it's easier than we think to let go and feel better on a physical , emotional and mental level, we just need to re-learn how. 

There will be a maximum of 11 participants

  • Also included: breath work and grounding exercises.
  • Introductory education presentation to watch at home before the workshop
  • Course materials, including home practice guide
  • Support (if required) before and after session/s
  • Guided T.R.E. audio recording
  • Closed client Q&A page
  • Confidentiality/Privacy fully respected

At this TRE session you will:

  • Learn first hand how T.R.E. reignites the body’s innate stress/tension release mechanism and experience your body/mind decompressing and growing in resilience.
  • Learn how to control the T.R.E. and importantly how to stop the tremoring when you need to.
  • Understand the science behind T.R.E. and how T.R.E. works.
  • Learn how to confidently and safely manage your home practice.
  • Receive guidance about adapting T.R.E. practice to your specific needs.
  • Learn additional Breath work, grounding and "containment" techniques, which can be used at any time to calm the nervous system and support emotional regulation. This are vital tools for those recovering from trauma and PTSD (particularly complex PTSD), as well as being helpful practices for everyone.
  • Have access to the Spa before and after the session to really maximise the releasing and integration;  It's open 8am to 8pm at weekends.
  • Optional dinner at Combe Grove; Combe Grove has a lovely Cafe Bar, with gorgeous views looking over the soothing countryside and offers delicious cakes, teas and food.

In addition to learning vital well being skills, the actual sessions will be an opportunity to let go, deeply relax your body and mind , reset your nervous system, and renew your energy. The setting is a calm one, with soft lighting, comfortable blankets and pillows, and relaxing music. 

Who is the T.R.E. for?

T.R.E. has helped people of all ages and from all walks of life by teaching them how to safely, comfortably and confidently release the symptoms of stress, tension, and deep anxiety. It is for ANYONE who wants to heal themselves from day to day pressures, and the associated, often debilitating symptoms of stress.

Dr Peter Levine - why animals don't develop stress symptoms ...

I was really curious why animals in the wild don't develop the same symptoms - because the parts of the brain that respond to stress are quite similar in all mammals, including humans... So I realized there must be some powerful innate mechanism that helps people rebound; that sort of resets our nervous system ... And I discovered that these reactions that reset the nervous system are identical with animals and with people. The difference is that we learn to override it because of our fear of powerful sensations. ... the basic idea is to guide people to help them recapture this natural resilience...
