TRE Engages the Bodies Natural Release and Stress Recovery Mechanism
Benefits of TRE
TRE is the most effective practice I’ve come across for maintaining a state of health and wellbeing by directly engaging the Central Nervous System to release muscle tension and free the body from the effects of stress and trauma.
The reason TRE has so many benefits is that it engages the bodies natural way of directly releasing stress, tension and building resiliency. Some of the many reported benefits include :
Reported Benefits Include:
• Less Worry & Anxiety
• Reduces Symptoms of PTSD
• More Energy & Endurance
• Improved Marital Relationships
• Less Workplace Stress
• Better Sleep
• Less Relationship Conflict
• Reduced Muscle & Back Pain
• Increased Flexibility
• Greater Emotional Resiliency
• Decreases Symptoms of Vicarious Trauma
• Healing of Old Injuries
• Lessened Anxiety surrounding Serious Illness
• Relief from Chronic Medical Conditions
The core release and reduced muscle tension from TRE is an effective sports recovery method and can benefit anyone who has or is experiencing any type of trauma who is experiencing emotional stress, physical pain or chronic tension in their body. TRE promotes better sleep, improved energy and endurance while reducing stress, physical tension, muscular pain and general worry and anxiety.
TRE is beneficial for severe trauma and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well as for physical complaints such as low back, hip and pelvic pain, as most are either caused or exacerbated by chronic stress and tension in the body.
TRE can be used as an effective sports recovery process to decrease the lingering effects of heavy training and post competition tightness as well as helping athletes to perform from a more relaxed base line and is easily integrated into existing exercises routines including cardio-vascular programs, gym and weights, pilates, yoga and relaxation.
While some people find the exercises immediately invigorating, giving them an instant burst of energy to get through the afternoon or kick start their day, many others find them deeply relaxing and use them to promote deep and restful sleep for the first time in years.
TRE is a powerful tool to relax the mind after stressful days at work or in times of conflict by bringing greater physical ease and emotional balance to the situation.
As TRE is a process that can be used regularly on an ongoing basis to gradually release the body’s chronic holding patterns over time, most people will experience ever greater freedom, grace and ease in their body resulting in a more positive outlook and greater psychological and emotional stability.
One of the benefits of TRE is it helps people feel more calm, relaxed, and grounded in their body in the present moment, rather than their thoughts of the past or future being lived out and experienced as a chronic physical tension pattern. Many people also find the practice of TRE a spiritual experience creating a deeper connection with themselves and the present moment.
While usually learnt in a group setting, anyone who has experienced severe trauma or has concerns about how they may respond to the process should be guided through the trauma release process individually by a health professional.

TRE offers a unique self-empowering self-care method designed to release deep chronic tension directly through the body experience, the release from the Central Nervous System making it very effective. Such a practice is invaluable and empowering to people who are otherwise suffering to some degree or another. TRE can be learned in a class or a private session. The words stress, tension and trauma are all referring to varying degrees of excitation in the body as a person becomes overwhelmed by thoughts and feelings about circumstances, perceives a threat or experiences injury. Humans and other mammals have the natural capacity to release accumulated tension/trauma from the body/mind; this is a survival skill and an evolutionary process. Whereas other mammals do this instinctively, humans have typically been conditioned to shut down the physical ability to release and in doing so the skills lay dormant within us.
Engaging Natures Simple Release Mechanism
When a threat is perceived or a trauma encountered, the brain energizes the body through activation of the Sympathetic Division of the Autonomic Nervous System, a process that is called the fight/flight response or stress response. The limbic system of the brain automatically takes charge, signaling the release of hormones from the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands. The body produces chemicals, pumping them into the muscles to reinforce our ability to defend ourselves. Being a primitive survival instinct, all logic is suspended. The flexor muscles on the anterior side of the body contract, bringing the extremities together to protect the vital organs, genitals and head, priming the body for fight, flight or freeze. For other mammals, once the danger has passed, they will enter the discharge phase of the stress response, which brings the organism back to homeostasis or balance. This phase produces Neurogenic Movements (trembling and shaking) as the body clears the levels of adrenalin and cortisol out of the muscles.
