Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises


TRE with Jennica

TRE is a simple yet highly effective technique that uses exercises to release stress or tension from the body that accumulate from every day circumstances of life, from difficult situations, immediate or prolonged stressful situations, or traumatic life experiences (i.e., natural disasters, sexual abuse, 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 tremors. The uniqueness of this technique is that this shaking originates deep in the core of the body, specifically the psoas muscle. 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 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, cycling or practicing yoga. TRE then becomes a quick and effective method for consistent relaxation. Eventually, these tremors will evoke themselves naturally in a resting 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 comes from the daily pressures of life.

Who can benefit from TRE?

Since this shaking mechanism in the muscles is part of our natural behavior as humans, everyone can benefit from TRE. Neurogenic tremors increase the resiliency of the body because they cause deep relaxation that naturally reduces stress levels. TRE can release emotions ranging from mild upset to severe anxiety whether it is caused by work stress, excessive worry, conflict in relationships, physical stresses, or traumas from accidents. Additionally, TRE has been reported to reduce pain, increases mobility, and aid healing of past injuries.

Whether you are a parent/spouse who would like more patience with your family, a victim of violence or accident, a soldier suffering with PTSD, or simply a person who wants to become more resilient and just feel better about life, you can benefit from TRE.
