TRE – Trauma Releasing Exercises

What is TRE & Who can benefit?

                             TRE stands for Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises

TRE is a simple technique that uses exercises to release stress or tension from the body that accumulate from every day circumstances of life, from difficult situations, immediate or prolonged stressful situations, or traumatic life experiences.

TRE is a set of six exercises that help to release deep tension from the body by evoking a self-controlled muscular shaking process in the body called neurogenic muscle tremors. The uniqueness of this technique is that this shaking originates deep in the core of the body of the psoas muscles.   When shaking is evoked at this powerful center of the body, it reverberates throughout the entire body, traveling along the spine, releasing deep chronic tension from the sacrum to the cranium. When tension is released anywhere in the body, the brain registers a reduction in pain signals and produces new hormones for relaxation and comfort. Often, this release of tension is much like receiving an internal massage.

The exercises are a simple form of stretching and are used to gently trigger these voluntary muscle tremors.

Once the technique is learned and mastered after several sessions, the warm-up exercises can be accelerated or replaced with your normal exercise activity like walking or yoga and the technique then becomes a quick and effective method for consistent relaxation.  Eventually, these tremors will evoke themselves naturally in the rest position to reduce any stress or tension that was accumulated over the course of the day.

TRE is being used by thousands of people around the world as an effective tool for releasing chronic traumatic stress, physical tension and emotional trauma.  It is also quickly becoming a popular way to release the everyday stress, tension and anxiety that comes from the daily pressures of life.

Since this shaking mechanism in the muscles is part of our natural behavior as humans, everyone can benefit from TRE.  This shaking of the muscles, or neurogenic tremors, increases the resiliency of the body because it causes deep relaxation that naturally reduces stress levels.  It can release emotions (in a very safe way) ranging from mild upset to severe anxiety whether it is caused by work stress, excessive worry, conflict in relationships, physical stresses or traumas from accidents.

TRE has been reported to reduce pain, increases mobility, and aid healing of past injuries.

Whether you are a parent/spouse who would like more patience with your family, a victim of violence or accident, a soldier suffering with PTSD, or simply a person who wants to become more resilient and just feel better about life, you can benefit TRE.
