Editorial Reviews

Dr. David Berceli is a former monk who spent 15 years as trauma specialist in war zones and areas of natural disaster before leaving his order to establish Trauma Releasing Exercises within the professional and therapeutic community . Dr. Berceli developed these simple physical exercises to help individuals and groups recover from periods of horrendous stress and trauma. The exercises are revolutionary in their calming effectiveness, and ability to work across in all cultures , nationalities ,and religions. The exercises can assist in counseling or be used a self- help tool. Don't be fooled by the title of this DVD . You do not need to have experienced trauma to benefit from the technique. Anyone who is experiencing mental stress, excessive worry and even the feeling of financial trauma can use these simple exercises to enhance well being. If you are stressed and no matter how many times you talk the negative feelings keep coming back, these exercises are for you. In addition to explaining how stress, anxiety, and trauma affect our mental well-being and physical health, The Revolutionary Trauma Release DVD explains the body's amazing ability to permanently release tension by using this technique. By reestablishing our equilibrium, stabilizing our lives, and returning us to emotional health, the exercises allow us to enjoy a vibrant state of being. The exercises are easy .The DVD contains a step by step demonstration. The DVD concludes with interviews of individuals and therapists who are using the exercises with success and experiencing significantly greater well-being. Dr Berceli was recently asked by officials of the Chinese Government to bring his exercises to China to aid in trauma recovery in the recently devastated earthquake zones.

I read about these exercises on one of the Meridian Energy forums, might have been Celebrate TAT (another excellent technique for releasing trauma from the mind/body/emotions). There was some concern on the part of some forum members that this technique should be used with caution, as it may bring up strong emotions, but I have not experienced strong emotions in doing these exercises. There is a disclaimer regarding consulting with a professional on the DVD. In other words, as always, we are responsible for our own well being and the path we choose to achieve that.

The presentation of the development of TRE is clear and easy to understand. His explanation of what happens to us when we experience trauma, whether caused by war, car accident or emotional trauma includes what the ego and personality do to readjust to the physical tension of the psoas muscles (the main location of the trauma response). I found this information very helpful. The explanations of the exercises is clear and it includes a real time demonstration you can follow easily. The exercises are done slowly, are not taxing, with variations given for one's personal physical limitations.

I have practiced TRE for about 2-3 weeks every other day. I have found them to be gentle, fairly easy to do and very effective at reducing the tension caused by past traumas not only in the psoas muscles but also the back, limbs and neck. The reduction of tension in the body is felt as a relaxation in the limbs, shoulders, trunk and pelvic area. There is a sense of peace in the body with the absence of the tension, posture has improved and other exercise, such as yoga, pilates, and qi gong are easier to do. I have found there to be less resistance to the stretches in these exercises.

As far as the content goes I think it is very good. The explanations are good and the exercises are simple and effective. The format is not good at all, however. The quality of the video leaves much to be desired, looking like the video on an old TV with rabbit ears which can't pull in a sharp picture. But I can accept that.

What I didn't like was there were no chapters made available for easy accessing of material. You can't go back and review things you want to focus on. Instead, you have to start from the very beginning and wait until the relevant points come up - very inconvenient. I would advise people to watch it first without trying to do the exercises and use the pause button frequently, and take notes on each exercise before going on to the next one. Or, buy the book too and have that on hand in case you want to review something carefully.

If this would have a menu and chapters I would give this 5 stars, poor picture quality notwithstanding.

Personally this is most useful! Professionally it was a God-send! I had sciatic nerve pain in my hip for 3 years. The second time I used these exercises this pain was relieved and now several years later the pain is still gone!! I also experienced emotional release that I had not been able to "get to" and felt tremendous healing from some old grief through the use of these exercises. These exercise have continued to help me manage the stress and tension in my own life since 2003.

Professionally I have a LCSW private practice specializing in trauma and addictions. I began to integrate these exercises into my work with clients and found them to be of great help in the healing process for my clients who had been traumatized and with those who live with chronic stress.

This DVD does a excellent job of demonstrating these simple exercises. They are easy to learn. This will be money well spent if you are looking for healing from trauma or to better manage chronic stress in your life.

After a recommendation from a friend ,I ordered Dr.Berceli's book and DVD Step by Step Demonstration to help with stress release.The book was very helpful and inspiring, but the DVD gave me the confidence to try the exercises .

Initially, I was a little skeptical that the exercises would be valuable, but I quickly became a true believer .I did the exercise for about 15 minutes over several months about 20 times often after my regular exercise.After about the fourth session I started sleeping like a baby.My blood pressure and resting heart rate seem to have both dropped permanently. I have tried other relaxation techniques over the years with little success. even though they do not take a lot of effort .Dr .Berceli's exercises make me feel relaxed and alert but not sleepy

It has almost been a year ,I am now a much happier optimistic person even though I now do the exercises only just occasionally when I feel out of balance or start to worry in excess.

I would definitely get the DVD with the book.Be skeptical, but I think you will pleasantly surprised after 4 or 5 sessions.

I was a little skeptical when I first started the exercises which are different from any thing I have ever seen .I was however impressed with Dr Berceli and the therapist interviewed. I am now a true believer.The exercises are easy and work!

My sleep quality is better and I am calmer .Even though the economy has been very scary , the exercises have given me a freedom from excessive worry.I am very grateful.
