TRE is a simple technique developed by David Berceli that uses exercises to release stress or tension from the body that accumulate from everyday circumstances of life, from difficult situations, immediate or prolonged stressful situations, or traumatic life experiences (i.e., childhood surgeries, car accidents, divorce, bereavement, natural disasters, social or domestic violence).
Also, during these stressful times with Covid 19, TRE has been proven to be a very helpful way for self care and self regulation. Bringing the body into homeostasis it can repair itself.
Recently David Berceli, the founder of TRE, has been interviewed by Russell Brand. In the episode, they discuss the idea of post-traumatic growth: Do we grow and learn from our trauma, and does it ultimately makes us stronger? Where and why do we store trauma in our bodies and what are subsequent consequences? David teaches people, through his simple TRE exercises, how to release trauma from the body in order to aid illness, both physical and mental. He tells Russell how he discovered these techniques; they also discuss the similarities these techniques have with ecstatic states and transcendent bodily feelings; and how some of us are so conditioned to be composed at all times we’ve lost the ability to relax, let go, or even cry.

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 a 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 evolves comes from the daily pressures of life.
TRE can definitely help people, especially people that are dealing with severe stress or issues in their life, but it can also help with back pain and it can improve the quality of sleep. Stress is a natural part of our life, but it’s how we deal with it that makes the difference. You may not realize it but stress could be affecting you without you even knowing it. It can also help people that want to improve the way they move, or help to get over an old injury.
