1/ A paradigm shift in normalising and reframing autonomic movements including spontaneous shakes and tremors after stressful or traumatic events as a key natural recovery reflex that has been deliberately used in traditional cultures for millenia rather than it being misunderstood as a ‘symptom’ of stress, trauma, anxiety, shock or PTSD.
2/ Medical pathologising of this innate reflex along with individual and cultural suppression in the West may inadvertently be reducing the likelyhood of recovery and contriburing to an increased likelihood of burnout, acute stress and PTSD
3/ This neurogenic tremor reflex can be deliberately invoked in a safe and controlled way on an ongoing and regular basis using the simple exercises of TRE (tension and trauma release exercises) to release stress and trauma and to reorganise our nervous system to build greater neurophysiological resilience, groundedness and coping capacity in the future.
