As a former first responder working in emergency management for a decade, stress was unavoidable and constant. As a result Susan developed PTSD and struggled with it for years after leaving the field.
In her search for holistic methods that would facilitate healing, Susan found that most seemed to stop working after a time. Then in 2013 her life changed. She heard about a stress management method that facilitates the release of stress (energy) from the body through a natural process of muscle movements that originate from the nervous system; she was intrigued!
This marked the beginning of her journey with TRE®. As she practiced regularly (and continues to do so), Susan noticed a decrease in PTSD and physical symptoms; they’re now both all but gone. In addition, overall, she feels calmer and more relaxed.
Excited about the process and the prospect of sharing it with others, she became a Certified TRE® Provider in 2018, left the field of Social Services and currently conducts workshops, individual sessions (virtual and in person) & lectures in the St. Louis Metro area, Metro East and throughout the state of Missouri.
"Your body has the innate ability to release stress & tension naturally; when you learn to recognize, honor and allow that process, you can move through your life from a place of calmness and groundedness. If you’re ready to 'shake it off', I will guide and support you through the process."
(Tension/Trauma Releasing Exercises) Facilitator
Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (or TRE®) 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, Ph.D., 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.
Reiki is a traditional Japanese healing technique that works with the body’s natural energy fields to aid in relaxation, stress reduction, physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
