Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (or TRE® for short), are a set of simple exercises that encourage a natural tremor, vibrating or shaking reflex in the body.

This response can release long-standing patterns of tension held in the body and support connection, ease and relieve stress.

Shaking works with the central nervous system. In trauma, parts of the brain get stuck in defence responses of ‘fight-or-flight’ or ‘freeze’.

TRE® is a safe process to calm over-protective reflexes and discharge tension. It helps a person to deal with overwhelming experiences.
