I get that the actual technique is scientifically tested, but there is lots of fluffy content and personal stories that I just didn't get into and didn't buy into. Other books of this nature will give you a lot of scientific information and studies that are relevant to the treatment or issue. With this, it felt like he came up with a treatment that was so simple and needs very little preparation, then he had to figure out a way to write a whole book about it. I like the exercises, but some parts of the book were just a waste of time.
I did quite a bit of research on TRE before buying this book. When the book arrived, I devoured it in a very short time. The anecdotes are interesting and the principles / concepts are practical and relevant. As a Physical Therapist and a person who has experienced anxiety, I was a little skeptical at first. I would like to hear more about the science behind this approach but realize that the book is written for the lay person. I have done the exercises a couple of times and have seen some positive results. I am definitely hopeful and loom forward to continuing with the program. Definitely some nuggets of real value in the text prior to the exercises as well. I would recommend this book for sure.
Very helpful. Clearly explains the process to get the vibration in your body that will release trauma from your body and your entire life. David is a caring, smart and kind man. He goes around the world to war torn regions, teaching people to do this technique. It has helped a LOT of people so far and if you do it as a practice I imagine it will help you too.
This book is a great introduction to trauma release, and how to activate the body's endogenous methods of healing from trauma, stress, and other insults to our sense of inner peace and equilibrium. The author brings up relevant anecdotes from his own experiences abroad to show show trauma is something that affects all cultures, classes, and religions. Talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy can help in many ways, but is almost never enough on its own to relieve what is fundamentally a neurophysiological congestion of energy.
