VIDEO: Releasing Traumatic Stress in Youth using TRE

Here is a case study of Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) being used at MyLife Foundation based in Cape Town, South Africa.

Quotes from participants:

“I found for me it’s not just an exercise, but is kind of helping me let things go…  At first, I kinda feeling myself in a space where I’m empty, I’m flat, but I still have something in my shoulders, I still have something in me, but the moment I start practicing it, I start feeling myself letting some things go and kind of reaching the center of me, of my soul, I feel like a child again, it’s like I’m born again.

… I found myself more open, more soft… yeah… just appreciate life.”

“I feel so much more grounded since I do this.  It’s like I’m more peaceful inside.”

“It’s helping me change a lot.  Because right now when I’m doing TRE, I haven’t got that fear that I used to have before.”
