When we experience stressful or traumatic events, the body records and stores this information with great accuracy. Each trauma leaves its mark, etched into both our psyche and our physical makeup. The chronic muscle tension patterns we accumulate affect how well we function, preventing us from accessing our most alive state.In addition to explaining how stress, anxiety, and trauma affect our mental wellbeing and physical health,The Revolutionary Trauma Release Processdraws on the body's amazingly precise record of our histories to provide a simple yet powerful way to access and release our tension. By reestablishing our equilibrium, stabilizing our lives, and returning us to emotional health, it allows us to enjoy a vibrant state of being.The magic of David Berceliís revolutionary Trauma Release Process is, because it functions equally well as a stand-alone program or in conjunction with other modalities, that it can be used by individuals to heal their personal trauma, groups such as first responders in a situation like 9/11, and large populations in the wake of disasters on the scale of a tsunami or earthquake.
