Tension/Trauma Release Exercises
Tension/Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®) is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. It is a natural and innate process that all mammals (including humans) possess.
HOW TRE® WORKS:
TRE® is a simple tool, that teaches the body how to turn off the stress response and a return to feeling grounded, safe and calm.
TRE® safely and easily activates a natural tremor/vibrating reflex in the body which releases muscular tension and regulates stress hormones in the body.
WHO CAN DO TRE®:
TRE® is accessible to all ages.
It can be used in conjunction with most other modalities and therapies.
It is not suitable for those who are pregnant or who have had surgery in the last 3 months.
HOW STRESS AFFECTS THE BODY:
Our body experiences stress when we feel under threat or unsafe. For many of us, this is a daily occurrence.
We worry about our finances, our relationships, our personal security, the safety of our children; and our bodies react.
This reaction is the tensing and preparing of our muscles to deal with the impending threat. It also involves the instantaneous release of stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, which instigate an immediate physiological reaction; preparing our bodies to deal effectively with the any threat.
It is this what is referred to as the Fight/Flight reaction.
This stress reaction is helpful and necessary when we are in fact under physical threat and need to react quickly.
Our bodies tend to be very good at turning ON this stress reaction however we have become less in touch with the mechanism of turning OFF this stress reaction.
We end up with a build up of stress hormones and tension in the body that leave us feeling tense, irritable, angry, overwhelmed, anxious, frustrated, disconnected, depressed, hopeless, numb and physically unwell.

TRE® discharges the tension in the muscles associated with stress.
