TRE® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) is a simple yet innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.
Ellen McKenzie is a Certified Yoga Therapist (CIAYT), Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, TRE Provider and TRE Trainer Trainer. Ellen was introduced to TRE by Alex Greene in 2015 and often jokes that she felt “just okay” about the initial experience. It was only upon witnessing a client spontaneously tremor during a session that she started to get really curious. That spark of curiosity prompted Ellen to dive into training and develop a personal practice that ultimately supported her own healing process after a series of emergency abdominal surgeries in 2019. Additionally, Ellen has invested herself in an in-depth exploration of the relationship between TRE and Zazen (Zen Meditation).
Today, she utilizes TRE as systemic support for her clients whether they are working to resolve trauma, address anxiety, heal from an injury or develop a meditation practice. She works with individuals and groups both online and in-person. Ellen believes in working collaboratively with her clients and invites them into a therapeutic relationship that is based in empowerment and self-determination.
