Addressing the Many Faces of Trauma & Stress

Complementary Missions



Medical research is key to bringing TRE into the medical mainstream.  The Berceli Foundation believes that research to scientifically validate the effectiveness of TRE with protocols that test the efficacy, safety, dosage, synergistic effects, markers, and effects on relapse tendencies over time are essential to achieve its mission and vision.

The Berceli Foundation wants to ensure that TRE is accessible to individuals and communities who would not otherwise be able to afford this treatment, including underserved populations and those who are the victims of natural or man-made disasters.

"To fulfill these goals we need the finest intellectual and financial support available from individuals, private industry, and government .Why not consider joining .us in this quest for building the evidence base and delivering this valuable healthcare intervention to those who need it and cannot afford it? Anxiety, stress, and tension from un-resolved trauma negatively affects all aspects of life." - Alan Woodman President Berceli Foundation

Our Vision

The David Berceli Trauma Release Foundation (Berceli Foundation ) seeks to restore the human spirit of our nation and our world, by empowering individuals with a universal and affordable healing method called TRE® or Tension &Trauma Releasing Exercises . These six simple exercises predictably activate a neuromuscular reflex mechanism within our bodies that release deeply held chronic tension produced by anxiety, stress, and traumatic events. They enhance the effectiveness of other treatment modalities. Those who seek healing through this self­-help modality attain a technique that empowers them to reduce their own stress, anger, and anxiety as needed.
