Oh wow…I’ve always fought the shaky feeling I sometimes get after extreme stress is over. I learned from another Facebook PTSD person about TRE® https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WReAjA7Nx4M
I experienced this for years. I didn’t know that people are now trying to shake off tension on purpose. I had an opportunity to try it this week. I was extremely nervous about a medical procedure this week. I openly explained that I had PTSD and offered the idea that if I started to panic I would raise my right hand. They agreed then explained every part of the procedure so well that I felt no surprises. Everything happened they way they described. I didn’t panic. Then after they were finished, my body began to shake. In the past, I would tighten my muscles and force my body to stop shaking. This time I allowed my body to shake for about a minute. Because I told the nurse I had PTSD, she wasn’t alarmed. She checked in with me to make sure I was safe then suggested for me to sit up when I was ready. I was totally amazed at how the shaking really did help all that tension release rapidly. I noticed that there are more videos about this on youtube. I am looking forward to finding another way to release tension.
Just shake it takes on a whole new meaning. 🙂
Another technique to help with tension is grounding.
