Overview

Life is stressful, anxiety provoking, and frequently traumatic. The result is that many of us are hurting, and often we are unaware of how deep our pain runs. These experiences aren't simply over and done with once they have passed. They each leave their mark, etched deep into both the psyche and the body. This affects how well we function from this point onwards. The Revolutionary Trauma Release Process shows what stress, anxiety, and trauma do to our mental wellbeing and physical health. Despite the uffering we experience in life, Dr. Berceli argues that even the most damaging events can become a pathay to a more fulfilling and meaningful life. The magic of The Revolutionary Trauma Release Process is that it can be utilized by anyone, any place on the planet. The process can reestablish a person's equilibrium, stabilize their life, and turn them to an emotionally healthy place.

    The Exercises Stretches Work

    I found this book searching for something else. The author explains how we trap trauma (doesn't have to be major) in our bodies in our psoas muscles. He outlines exercises that will cause tremors that release the held tension from your body. He travels the world helping large groups of people release trauma. It is great for PTSD.
    The exercises are easy and have photos. For a few that may be difficult, he gives the easy version. They take about 15 min or so plus the release time and that is up to you.
