TRE® is an effective tool for managing and relieving stress, tension & trauma.

TRE® is simple and easy.

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.



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.



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.


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.
This often relieves physical pain.

It works on a neurological level to process traumatic memories therefore eliminating symptom of PTSD.

It assists the body to release emotions associated with stress and anxiety leaving one feeling calm and grounded.

TRE® is a physiological process, therefore it requires no talking or rehashing of disturbing events in order to process and move on.

During the time that the body is tremoring the participant is fully conscious and is totally in control of what is happening.

I can never put into words how much Renee changed my life by teaching me TRE.
I suffer from Psoriasis: a life-long auto-immune disease, with no cure, as the doctors put it.

I was covered from head to toe, my hair was falling out, I couldn’t sleep at night because Psoriasis is painful, uncomfortable and relentless. I never wanted to leave my house. My work life, social life and love life all looked like they were grinding to a halt. I didn’t want to get up in the morning and found myself crying more than smiling.

My Psoriasis was triggered by a trauma that talking about just made worse. I was so desperate for help but didn’t know what to do. I went to multiple dermatologists and specialist doctors and they all told me the same thing: Cortisone was the only thing that could help a person with Psoriasis as severe as mine and that I would have to be on it for life!

Then I met Renee and the transformation began. The difference once I started TRE was so marked I still cry (with happiness and relief) when I think about it! Renee saw that my adrenal and cortisol levels were high (two key players in my auto-immune disease) and that we could lower these through the TRE Exercises!
I won’t bore you with my amazing revelations and the beautiful process, but I will tell you that EVERYONE who saw the difference in my appearance and my demeanour was amazed. I use TRE on a regular basis now and will continue to do so, not because I “need” to, but because now that I have discovered TRE, I think that everyone could benefit from it in ways they can’t imagine!

I feel grateful on a consistent basis for the amazing gift that Renee gave me! I will never be able to thank her enough for helping me and for being such a wonderful source of love, support, guidance and a firm hand when I needed it. Thank you Renee."
