Format: Paperback
This book was highly recommended to me. I then saw it not only boasts dozens of 5 star reviews on Amazon.com but that they are unanimously 5 stars, something I have never come across before.

I was however disappointed to have to plough through 100+ pages, mainly anecdotes about traumas - treated in a somewhat shallow manner - before getting to the nitty gritty. Only the last 80 pages of this slim (200 page) book were practical. I felt the first two thirds was essentially filler except the parts explaining how Bercell, a former monk who has voluntarily spent half his life in war-torn countries, came to realise that shaking was highly beneficial and that adults have been socialised out of shaking. His investigations discovered that the big psoas muscle was involved and how to address the problem.

The steps of the 7 exercises themselves are pictured and explained simply enough even for a clumsy person like me, who usually has difficulty with instructions and diagrams. I was best with the floor exercise and came out of my first tremor experience highly impressed and so relaxed I needed a brief nap.

Given all that padding, I was even more disappointed that what I would consider vital information was missing from the book, for instance: do you do all the exercises one after the other or do you just pick one or two? If one or two, do you just pick them at random? Do each of the exercises have a generally different effect, does it matter how you create shaking (since even a little gardening can achieve that for me)?

It's irritating that in this book seemingly basic questions have not been addressed by the author because I am keen to learn as much as possible: this is one of the very few methods that has ever been successful for me.

I found it quite annoying that I had to buy the book just to have access less than 10 exercises!I started reading the book and got bored rather quickly with endless anecdotal stories.Instruction wise there was very little. Apparently it is impossible to see these exercises online for free and that could be because selling the instruction of these exercises are clearly Berceli bread and butter and anyone putting the exercises online for free will at some stage have to be removed as I noticed happen in several blogs and forums.Odd. The exercises reminded me of Alexander Lowen's Bioenergetic exercises, actually two are identical.Bioenergetics has a limited following because alot of Lowen's theories and exercises are whimsical to many people in the industry. Personally I have read everything I can get my hands on to do with the body mind connection, because the subject fascinates me.I think Lowen's work is valid (especially his writing on Depression and the body) to a certain extent, some of the stuff remains a bit "out there".So Bercelli seems to have adapted some of the exercises on that, so not entirely original. I have been doing the TR exercises as stretching exercises every morning for 2 months now and while I certainly feel more limber (all stretching exercises are designed for that end)I have been disappointed that I have experienced no tremors and none of the bold promises his website make.Perhaps in the absence of tremors the bold promises are obsolete. I guess if you take a tense person and give them stretching exercises of any kind they will see a certain loosening of tension in the body over time, but I am unconvinced that it releases any trauma because I have certainly had no experience of it.Read more ›

After seeing a therapist and feeling disempowered and fed up , I came home and found this book , searching for new paradigms in trauma release.
I am long term depressive, after 3-4 days of doing these exercises, I had
intense emotional releases, reduction of anxiety and realised I had started a very profound process which is now unfolding.........

I have always been interested in self improvement. I quickly understood that Dr.Berceli's process is not about another recycled self-help strategy but an easy physical exercise to rapidly and permanently release deep-seated the tension and worry that can come from trauma or from periods of overwhelming stress.

I was skeptical but open enough to try Dr. Berceli's process after reading how he developed the exercises. Berceli, an ex monk, is a trauma expert. His laboratories were battle fields and war zone where he helped establish trauma relief programs for survivors of horrendous events and conditions such as war and genocide. While running Trauma Relief programs in the Middle East, Rwanda, and Bosnia, he observed in many cultures how people reacted physically to extreme trauma and the horrors of war yet how some recovered faster than others. In a nutshell, he was able to put together simple physical exercises to release the muscle tension that gets deeply imprinted in the body and mind at times of unbearable stress.

After learning that these physical exercises were developed for times of war and horrendous stress, I figured that they might work for ordinary stress overload and excessive worry. I did not have any trauma that I was aware of, but I have been a long-time worrier that probably comes from running a business. I was curious enough to give the exercises a shot. Bingo! After about four or five sessions, I cannot believe how much better I began to feel.

That was six months ago and positive results persist. My resting heart rate and blood pressure have dropped permanently. I am calmer. I sleep better, and I now finally understand the concept of feeling grounded--something that I thought was just new age psycho babble.
