How many sessions are needed to release my chronic stress or trauma?
This a difficult question to answer, as it depends on your history of stress and trauma. Tension builds up in your body over the years. The more tension you build up, the longer it takes to release. Especially childhood trauma tends to take time to release, as it causes an imprint in your system.
Doing TRE® 3 times a week for 20 minutes, partly under the guidance of an experienced TRE® provider to release your lifetime tension from injury, stress or trauma, might take you a few months to a year.
Releasing a lifetime of built-up tension from injury, stress or trauma might take you a few months to a year, with the occasional exception. On the contrary, children under 12 might only need about 6 weeks to release trauma, as their bodies release easy.
Look at stress in a continuum; with on one side people that experience(d) stress, in the middle people that experience(d) stress plus some extra issues (like migraine, bladder problems, sleep disturbance or chronic back pain) and on the other side of the continuum people whom have (childhood) trauma, PTSD, heart and gut syndromes (like Crohn's disease, ulcers or interstitial cystitis), chronic fatigue (ME), fibromyalgia and more.
