Addressing the Many Faces of Trauma

and Research to aid those who suffer.

One Foundation, Two Distinct 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.

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 - Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises.  These six simple exercises predictably activate a neuromuscular mechanism within our bodies that releases deeply held chronic tension produced by traumatic events.  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.
