TRE: Trauma or Tension Releasing Exercises

TRE: Nervous System Regulation

Accessing Your Bodies Innate Wisdom and Ability To Heal

What is TRE

Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (or TRE) is a set of simple yet intelligent set of exercises that help your body release deeply held stress, trauma or injuries. It was created by David Berceli, PhD. TRE is designed to help activate a neurogenic tremor that shows up as shaking or vibrating in the body that releasing tension and helping the nervous system access more calm and connection. It is the same mechanism that wild animals have access to that prevents them from developing PTSD or anxiety-related disorders although they are constantly facing life-threatening situations. This shaking or tremor helps the body go back into its safe and balanced state we were meant to operate from.

Benefits of TRE

Self-Help Tool

Although it can be helpful to have someone teach you TRE and to hold space for the practice it is something you can do on your own. It is a very powerful Self-Help tool you can use to reduce stress and anxiety while boosting your health and well-being.

Heal Trauma + Mental Health

Distressing experiences and emotions can get stuck in our bodies. TRE can help you access these traumas and release them. This can also include the residual symptoms of anxiety, depression, insomnia, fears, worries, dissociation etc. Trauma can also include old injuries or tension held in the body from work, sitting, accidents, etc. TRE can release this tension or emotions helping the body go back into regulation.

Boost Well-Being

When you regulate your nervous system and help is access more calm and connection this will boost your well-being. When we access our ventral vagal nerve part of our parasympathetic nervous system we feel safe with ourselves and with others, we experience more joy, happiness, curiosity, creativity, clarity, calmness, and confidence. Doing TRE helps you access this level of your nervous system many of us have been disconnected from but it is always there.
