Certified TRE® (Stress, Tension & Trauma Release) Practitioner & Nutritional Therapist
Maria started her wellness journey over a decade ago when qualifying as a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist from The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, UK. After having the life-altering experience of becoming a mother to two beautiful boys, she realised that nutrition, natural supplements and movement were simply not enough to keep her feeling optimally well with all the demands of her life.
She realised that whilst she knew how to optimally nourish the physical body, she didn’t have enough tools to nourish the mind or soul on a deeper level. That’s when she discovered and became certified in TRE® (Stress, Tension & Trauma Release), HeartMath® emotional self-regulation techniques as well as Sound Healing. Whilst studying these powerful modalities, she also dove deep into the emerging field of psychoneuroimmunology and the power of the mind-body connection on health outcomes. Mind-body medicine is integral to her approach in all her consultations.
Maria offers in-person 1-on-1 TRE® (Stress, Tension & Trauma Release) sessions at Vitruvian Wellness. TRE® is a set of 7 simple exercises which initiate a natural neurogenic tremor (i.e. a soothing vibration or shaking) within the body. This neurogenic tremor in-built in all human beings safely releases emotional stress, physical tension and stored trauma held within the muscles and tissues of the body. TRE® instantly switches on the parasympathetic nervous system, responsible for inducing a calm and relaxed state. Many people report feeling instantly calmer and more peaceful after just one TRE® session.
Maria also offers nutritional therapy, mind-body connection coaching and group wellness services for organisations at Trinity Wellness.
