TRE® (Tension & Trauma Release Exercise)

Do you long to feel calmer, feel deeper connection to yourself, change your sleeping patterns for the better, manage your stress and reduce physical pain? TRE® is a simple and quick set of movements that turn on our body’s natural rebalancing process. By releasing everything from everyday stress to deeply held physical tension and trauma, TRE® provides an immediate experience of relaxation and frees us up to meet life’s challenges with greater ease. Best of all, our bodies do the work; we often get relief without needing to process or retell our story. TRE® is extremely effective as a stand-alone practice, and it deepens all other stress-relief practices such as mindfulness, yoga, and meditation.

Where did TRE® originate?

Developed by Dr David Berceli, TRE® is a self-help technique that deliberately activates our bodies’ instinctive tremor mechanism in a safe and controlled way.  Session by session, these tremors help to release the build-up of muscular tension patterns accumulated in our body during stressful and traumatic life experiences.

These neurogenic, therapeutic tremors occur naturally in life when our nervous system is over-activated (sympathetic overload) and are our organisms’ default way of bringing the nervous system back into a calm and balanced state (homeostasis). The tremor response is generated in the brainstem, but it is easy to learn how to regulate it.

TRE® is being taught and used successfully in more than 30 countries for recovery from chronic stress and/or post trauma symptoms.
