Dr David Berceli’s Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises TRE® are an amazing tool for helping the body let go of deep, chronic patterns. TRE helps you shake off tension naturally.

Shaking can be remarkably simple and the process of change the shakes facilitate is very easy to self-regulate.

The goal of the TRE exercises is to start a self-directed tremoring process. The tremors are deeply natural and release tension and trauma held in the body.

Once you have learnt the exercises, and can feel and allow the tremors, you just let the body do its own healing and clearing out of overwhelming experiences. It really can be that easy.


Find a Provider or Group near you.

Certified TRE® Providers can help you learn the about the quiet power of tremors in a 1 to 1 setting.

Groups are a safe and cheap way to learn TRE®. Many people first learn how to shake in drop in groups.


New guidelines from TRE for All allow online certification.

Join the TRE® Certification Program to safely learn how to teach TRE® to others as a set of stress relieving exercises.

I liked the structure and the emphasis on self-regulation, slow pace and 'no need to tell the story over and over again'. I enjoyed getting in touch with my body's innate intelligence again.

In trauma its hard to find words for things and that can often be too difficult. TRE is a great way to access a release without being in your head but being in your body and quietly finding peace.
