TRE or Tension/ Trauma Release Exercises – Heal your body, heal your brain


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).

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. These gentle tremors reverberate outwards along the spine releasing tension from the sacrum to the cranium.

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.

I am a qualified TRE practitioner and have successfully worked with, first one on one clients, and the last year also with groups.
