Shake it off Virtual reality
Shaking therapy (or TRE, Tension Release Exercise) aims to help your body “return to a state of balance” by, you guessed it, shaking and swinging your body! TRE practitioner Sylvia Tillmann explains, “It burns off stress hormones and releases tension held in our muscles, in particular the psoas muscle which holds emotional tension.”
It’s said to help with PTSD, although this hasn’t been scientifically proven. Info at tremendoustre.co.uk.
It might sound futuristic, but virtual reality is becoming very popular – and fitness brand Les Mills is embracing the technology with the Bodycombat VR app.
Users are coached while exercising, and can take part in martial arts challenges at a variety of levels – so you can work out in intergalactic deserts and neo-city skylines without leaving the house.
