Whether you’re looking for a massage, counseling, Chinese Medicine, EMDR, or Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises®, one or all, I think change is possible!
I have heard that it is possible, through trauma release exercises, to overstimulate the root chakra. I have heard people reporting that they feel 'grounded' after doing the trauma release, which is a good sign, and thought to be linked to the root chakra opening. I haven't experienced this myself, yet, although am keen to experience it.
If one overstimulates the root chakra, however, apparently one may become too materialistic, or overtly sexual. If you are worried about these things or start feeling negative effects linked to overstimulation of the root chakra, it is probably a good idea to stop doing the exercises and to switch to a more wholistic form of exercise, which stimulates all the chakras evently. Yoga, for example, is a good choice of exercise, which can also work the psoas muscle.
In fact my mum, who is a yoga instructor, said that often her students, when doing a yoga pose which engages the psoas muscle, report emotions coming to surface. There must be some truth to the psoas-muscle being an emotional muscle, then, as suggested by BC in the comments below.

I must say that, after today, I have become more curious of the trauma release exercises. How can the psoas muscle 'vibrations' effect other muscles, such as those of the neck, without a clear 'shake' going through the whole body? Does this trauma release have something to do with the nervous system signals? Or is it simply a matter of deep muscular tension? Does it have something to do with cells and the cellular memory?
I should also note that today I was not concentrating at all, not doing any suggestions or mental concentration of any kind. I was listening to the radio while going through the seven trauma release exercises. So if you can't get tremors the first time, most likely it is not a question of mental focus or needing a specific mental state. It seems that what David Berceli says makes most sense: the body will release in the order that it is ready.
But being able to relax your muscles most likely plays a huge role too. If you can't relax, you might choose to do a relaxation exercise first using one of the guided visualisation cd's and then trauma release. Or you might exercise first. But don't give up if you don't get tremors the first time because my tremors were very mild before but now they are getting better and better each time. So do the exercises for, say, seven days every day, slowly and carefully and hopefully the tremors will come when your body is ready to release.
Actually, I have to make one more point: I had this idea in the beginning that this whole thing might be a hoax, because you first work the muscles and then you make them shake. I thought the trauma release exercises were perhaps just a case of tiring muscles which are not so commonly used and then experiencing tremors in certain, hard-on-the-muscle -poses. But I have given up on this idea for the simple reason that as I do more of these exercises, and the muscles get stronger, the tremors increase - they don't get less! In addition, I get tremors in muscles that have nothing to do with the exercises performed. All this makes me think how complex the human body is, and how little we know. Hopefully one day I can understand how trauma gets stored and released but until then, I'm just happy to have found this technique.
We shall see how the experiment pans out. I hope I will feel grounded and achieve even better tremors and better release.
Today I again felt like I could breathe a lot better after the trauma release exercises.
TRE was designed to create intentional tremors and shaking in the body. This loosens the defense surrounding the muscle patterns holding tension, stress and trauma. These unconscious patterns are held in tight which causes fatigue and illness. Once TRE is activated in the body, a lightness and a sense of unwinding will flow creating a more healthy and stronger body.
It is best to have a certified TRE provider guide you through the TRE trauma healing exercises in order to gain optimal benefits. They will help you release tension and trauma from the body without having you verbally tell the "story". It is a simple process that helps let go of those emotions attached to your "bad" perceptions of an experience in the past. You don't have to know it in order to release it. Each TRE trauma release exercise is designed to help you "shake it off".
There have been numerous benefits reported from the TRE tension trauma releasing exercises. Below is an extensive list of benefits experienced from TRE therapy.
