    I was talking to one of my neighbors yesterday and she was very excited about learning TRE. She also calls the process shaking. She told me that one of the ways the body releases stress is by shaking. And she said that is true for many animals. If you look at dogs after a stressful moment, they normally shake their bodies.

    It is not really something that I'm familiar with but I would be curious to know if anyone on RJ has tried it. And if so, what they thought of it.

    Reported Benefits Include:
    • Less Worry & Anxiety
    • Reduces Symptoms of PTSD
    • More Energy & Endurance
    • Improved Marital Relationships
    • Less Workplace Stress
    • Better Sleep
    • Less Relationship Conflict
    • Reduced Muscle & Back Pain
    • Increased Flexibility
    • Greater Emotional Resiliency
    • Decreases Symptoms of Vicarious Trauma
    • Healing of Old Injuries
    • Lessened Anxiety surrounding Serious Illness
    • Relief from Chronic Medical Conditions

    Uncontrollable shaking = Body's natural response to trauma or extensive stress.

    Controlled shaking = Drunk on the dance floor.

    This makes sense. I like it. So the next time someone tries to traumatize me, I'm supposed to shake them violently. I can see how that would relieve my stress. Thanx for the tip.
