Tension and Stress Releasing Exercises (TRE)

TRE has been used successfully in over 30 countries.

Self Restoration

TRE stands for Tension, Stress & Trauma Releasing Exercises. It is an innovative series of movements that assists the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma and restore an inner state of peace and calm.

When this muscular shaking is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return to a state of balance. TRE has been used successfully in over 30 countries.

TRE starts with neurological change, psychological change follows. Trust the tremors to lead the process.

When we come to know and then release the stored tension and trauma in our bodies we open the doorway to begin to re-experience the fullness of life through letting go of our chronic and habituated defensive patterns to return ourselves to a state of peace, calm, curiosity and joy that many of us have not experienced since we were young children.

Who is TRE for?

TRE is not just for trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. TRE is for anyone who finds they get charged up in response to the stresses of daily life by getting irritated, frustrated, anxious or worried – and would benefit from unwinding these emotional body based responses to experience greater peace, calmness and freedom in their lives.

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

The TRE modality is used as part of this programme to facilitate release of stored tension and trauma patterns in the body and allow a discharge of the nervous system.

TRE is a body modality that is safe for even 6 year olds to use. It is a somatic therapy that does not require physical touch or verbal communication which results in strong appeal for many who prefer not revisiting past traumas.
