Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (TRE)

TRE is a somatic restoration technique that
releases deeply held body tension and accumulated stress, by "shaking it off".  

Our bodies are built to protect us from stress and shaking is the body’s natural recovery response.  TRE is the practice that activates the body’s recovery process.  Through a series of simple physical stretches (from the ankle to the hips), the body welcomes a natural shaking, which releases accumulated overwhelm, restores balance and builds inner body resiliency (within the nervous system).

What’s TRE?

Dr. David Berceli, an international social worker, developed TRE® for his study of human trauma response. 

He noticed that the human body contracts when faced with threat and that shaking is a primitive response to stress and trauma, shared by both humans and animals.  

Shaking is a neurogenic (nervous system) tremor, which is the body’s natural process to restore regulation of body rhythm and body systems.

"Shaking" is a natural response to stress & trauma, and part of human behavior.

Shaking causes deep relaxation which reduces stress levels, regulates body systems and increases resiliency of the body.  Stressful events and experiences can over-charge the body.  TRE  is the process that activates the body to discharge the excess, by literally "shaking it  off".  

Whether you have chronic stress, anxiety, physical tension, injury trauma, PTSD,
or are simply a person who wants to become more resilient and just feel better,
you can and will benefit from TRE
