Empowering individuals and communities to rediscover balance in body, mind and spirit.

We already contain exactly what it takes to heal, feel content, be inspired, and experience joy. Caroline’s  goal is to help you  to  help yourself ….  to clear away doubt and negativity, stress, and tension so that you can connect with your innate ability to experience physical and emotional freedom and connectedness.  Regardless of whether stress or trauma is physical, emotional or psychological in origin, ultimately it is the body that responds, and these unresolved fight, flight and freeze patterns need to be discharged and released in order for us to return to a calm and relaxed homeostasis. Then we can flourish!

Many different activities and treatments can help you achieve a deep state of relaxation on a temporary basis.   However, for most people, the old  patterns of stress and tension gradually return. This may show up as tight and painful muscles,  headaches, mental stress , anxiety, depression, insomnia, frustration or chronic illness .

Often the underlying cause of the symptoms mentioned above arise from a neurological stress response that has led your body away from homeostatis – it’s most natural state.  So here’s what you can do to create a long term change for the ongoing well-being of your  mind and body.  Ask Caroline to design a treatment plan that includes the principles of Positive Psychology  and Integrative Medicine to help you to thrive.

 Tension/Trauma Release Exercise® (TRE):

Learn how to do TRE and then use this tool whenever you feel the need. It is life-changing.  It is empowering.  You will be amazed by how much you can now do for yourself, instead of putting up with pain or accepting that it will just keep returning after treatments. TRE  awakens your body and enlivens your mind.  It is the perfect way to address tension, stress and even trauma.  It is simple to learn.

Regardless of whether stress or trauma is physical, emotional or psychological in origin, ultimately it is the body that responds, and these unresolved fight, flight and freeze patterns need to be discharged and released in order for us to return to a calm and relaxed homeostasis.

Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) is a revolutionary approach that deliberately uses the body’s own innate process of involuntary shaking and tremoring in a safe and controlled way to physically release the effects of chronic stress and unresolved trauma including PTSD.

TRE is something you can practice on your own, after a few simple lessons, whenever the need arises to discharge stress and restore your body to a relaxed state. So you can take charge and be empowered in your own healing!

Creating Inner harmony …..

… release energy

and find peace.

TRE will transform your body so that you can pursue all kinds of activities that give you pleasure.  It can be integrated into your daily life.  Once you have learned TRE you can induce the mild tremors to release tension any time you like: before you get out of bed, after exercise of any kind, before sleeping, before public speaking, after any stressful experience.

Your body will literally shake out all those old  tension patterns and any new ones that emerge. People who use TRE regulary as part of their everyday exercise or relaxation routine, find that it reduces the  need and frequency for other kinds of treatments  for mind and body  that are used to deal with recurring pain, muscular tightness, dysfunction and symptoms of stress such as insomnia, headaches, anxiety and depression.

Clinical Pyschologists and counsellors  report that  people get enormous benefits from learning and using  TRE in their daily lives.  It is a totally empowering process that changes lives!

My intention is to empower individuals to achieve a state of  physical and emotional well being that enables them to live without pain and in complete harmony with self and others. A peaceful world starts with peaceful individuals.  Caroline MacDonald
