TRE® in 100 words

Posted By

‘TRE®, Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises, are a simple set of exercises that trigger a natural tremor reflex in the body.

Shaking can release long-held tension patterns and promote new feelings of connection and ease.

Shaking is a novel stimulus to the central nervous system. New stimuli, approached with safety and curiosity, can support learning and growth.

The psychology of trauma is complex, the physiology is relatively simple. In trauma old parts of the brain are fixed in defence cascades of ‘fight-or-flight’ or ‘freeze’.

TRE® is a safe, natural process to re-boot overprotective reflexes.’

Got asked to describe TRE® for a magazine today. Fingers crossed it gets printed.

    I’d say TRE is something you can do when there’s so much pain in you that you don’t know what to do with yourself. When you move from room to room, unable to sit for long, unable to settle. I’d say TRE is something you can do when you find yourself sitting staring, unable to concentrate cos your head is buzzing or when you open a screen, check what’s happened, close it again, then pick it up all over again so you can’t get to bed, can’t get to sleep. I’d say TRE is something you can do when the feelings inside will give you no peace, and everything is on alert and it’s all too much for one body to contain any longer. Though that’s probably more than 100 words.
