What is TRE?

Tension & Trauma Release Exercises(TRE®) are a simple and accessible, yet powerfully effective way to release stress and grasp wholeness. TRE® is a series of simple exercises that evoke Neurogenic tremors(vibration, shaking) which are a safe and healthy way to discharge stress and calm the nervous system. When the body is able to access safety from within it has an opportunity to soften its disposition and open back up to the fullness of the human experience.

What does TRE do?

TRE soothes the nervous system by discharging energy that was stored in the body from aborted fight/flight/freeze responses and releases the corresponding physical tension allowing the body to find a sense of calm and safety within itself.

TRE gives the body an opportunity to reconcile imbalances and is helpful in working towards equilibrium for the body, mind & spirit.
