The Revolutionary Trauma Release Process.
By D. Berceli PhD.

TRE is primarily a self-help and self-administed process for self-regulation. We administer it to ourselves to lower our own stress levels. It can also be used in conjunction with psychotherapy, physical therapy, coaching, massage, yoga and much more.

  • Self-use of TRE doesn’t require certification.

If you will be using TRE in a professional environment certification is required. These are the basic certification requirements:

  • Attendance at an approved 3-day Level I TRE program

  • Reading Requirements

  • TRE Supervision 10 hours (average)

Farewell to our dear Friend, Teacher and Mentor: Elaine Calenda

We want to share that our dear friend Elaine Calenda has passed away. We will always remember her as an extraordinary person who gave a lot to our wonderful field of Massage Therapy.

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still – I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.

 Thank you for sharing the last part of your journey with us.  Dawn & Jorge
