What is TRE®?

TRE®- Tension and Trauma Release

TRE® is a fast, highly effective method of trauma and long term stress recovery. It is a body based modality that initiates a deep muscle release through the nervous system in a safe and simple way. The uniqueness of this process is in the re-activation of our body’s natural mechanism to letting go of stress and tension.

Who can Benefit from TRE®?

This natural process of release makes TRE® available and beneficial for everyone whether you are suffering from mild stress or deep seated trauma. TRE® increases the resilience of the body through deep relaxation, naturally reducing stress and anxiety levels.

It can release on both a physical and emotional level caused by work stress, excessive worry, conflict in relationships, physical stresses or traumas from accidents, injuries and operations. Additionally, TRE® has been reported to reduce pain, increase mobility and aid in the healing of past injuries.

If you have experienced any form of violence and are suffering from PTSD or you are someone who wants to become more resilient and just feel better about life, you can benefit from TRE®.

TRE® is being used by thousands of people around the world as a highly effective tool for releasing chronic stress, physical tension and emotional pain. It is a self-empowering method of releasing the everyday stress, tension and anxiety that comes from the daily pressures of life.

Once learned this process can be done on your own with occasional assistance from a certified practitioner.

Why use TRE®?

When tension is released anywhere in the body, the brain registers a reduction in pain signals, producing new hormones that promote healing. An enhancing attribute of the TRE® process is that the negative effects of trauma are released without having to actually relive, remember or talk about the event.
