Shake Off Stress
"I continue to shake off my stress; and more of my shaking now comes in the sitting position. It has truly been a major aide in becoming more aware of my body and where I feel things. I feel more relaxed within, and have been more confident and focused in my performances.
Actor, Los Angeles, California
"Mary is passionate and spirited about TRE.
I was fortunate to have six TRE sessions with Mary. As a college student I am often stressed and anxious. Mary has taught me how to calm myself. After just 15 minutes of TRE I feel energized and relaxed. Thank you Mary for helping me cope with my anxiety. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone who is looking to reduce his or her stress levels."

SHAKE OFF STRESS
"I was lucky enough to meet Mary when she attended a yoga class I was teaching, and as we talked afterwards I discovered her connection to David Bercelli's TRE Program, which I'd read about but never tried. Mary generously invited me to a TRE lesson, where I felt the power of the exercises, as well as the bliss of the shaking practice, for myself. Over the years, I've been impressed by Mary's knowledge of the body, by her expertise in the TRE system, and by her compassion -- I recommend her to anyone seeking somatic-based, stress reduction instruction."

"As a veteran, recently discharged from the Navy, I struggled with homelessness, substance abuse, and finding balance in my life. Traditional treatments helped, but could only take me so far. TRE has opened me up to a mind-body connection that has allowed me to not only overcome the barriers in my life, but to truly thrive! Thank you! "
