When we find ourselves shaking as a result of being in a highly emotional state – it’s a good thing. Shaking is a natural primal instinct that our body wants to do to calm us down. Examples of charged energies include those moments when you are 1) Excited! 2) angry 3) afraid 4) nervous.
Unfortunately as we’ve grown up and grown older, we’ve learned to shut this mechansim down. “It’s a sign of weakness to show your emotions” we’re told. “Don’t do that, you look like something’s wrong with you.” “Control yourself.” “Pull yourself together” or face judgement.
NO! There’s nothing wrong with you! You are actively engaging in self-care when you shake. TRE® (as it’s referred to) or Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises – IS a safe way to bring your body back to alignment and inner harmony, to bring you back to yourSelf. By resisting the urge to “let it go” you are programming your body and physiology to hold onto chronic trauma – you store your charged energy. But by allowing your body to properly maintain a sense of balance and shake – you reduce the risk of future ill-ease. You’re also taking your body back in time, and allowing it to let go of what’s perviously happened to it : physically, emotionally, neurologically, biologically, cognitively … do I need to go on?
Remember – your body is a system of systems, and it’s good practice and management for optimal Health and Wellness. TRE® is one of many modalities to help you achieve overall Health and provides you a healthy sense of Wellness. I always remind people – don’t put all your eggs in one place – it’s good to have one more modality in your toolbelt, to know what your body needs and when. Once you begin your TRE® practice, you will begin to feel when it serves you best. TRE® is a great modality for letting go of attachements and stored charges from old injuries, surgeries, emotional upsets and events. With practice, you’ll learn how to “let go” in the moment, and not store your energy – thus it becomes a preventative measure, and a guarantee for better health.
The most commonly reported benefits from TRE® :
- decreased anxiety
- the release of chronic tension
- the discharge of emotional and physical trauma
- improved sleep, mood and digestion
- decreased aches and pains
- improved flexibility
- a decrease in symptoms for sciatica, fibromyalgia,
…. and other chronic conditions.

This series opens the door to exploring and understanding your own personal relationship with food – with the gift of support, and led by Lisa Karasek, CEPC.
“If you’ve ever struggled with finding a way to a deep, happy, and healthy connection with your body and food, The Slow Down Diet is your bible.” – Mark Hyman, M.D.
