Trauma Release of a Polar Bear (Video)

Here is a video that shows the trauma release process in a polar bear after it has been traumatized (by the people who’re taking the video).

The “shaking response” you see in the video is what is invoked during Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE).

What is TRE?

Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) is an easy to learn body-centered method created by Dr. David Berceli.  It is a simple technique that helps releases stress or tension from the body that accumulate from every day circumstances of life, from difficult situations, immediate or prolonged stressful situations (e.g. anxiety, depression), or traumatic life experiences (i.e., natural disasters, social or domestic violence, PTSD).  Click here to learn more.
