About Tension and Trauma Release Exercises

What is Tension and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE)?

Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises is a series of simple physical exercises that stimulate the muscles of the legs and hip flexors, triggering a shaking or vibrating sensation, in order to release tension related to stress or trauma.

As the pattern of muscle tension changes, the brain relaxes, releasing endorphins and other stress-reducing chemicals throughout the nervous system and restoring the individual to their natural chemical balance.

Who should consider Tension and Trauma Release Exercises?

Anyone can benefit from TRE, but especially those who are experiencing minor or significant stress in their lives, or who have suffered physical or psychological trauma in the past.

Psychological stress and trauma often result in physical symptoms. TRE has been shown to improve physical conditions triggered by stress such as:

  • Migraines
  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Insomnia
  • Gastro-intestinal issues
  • Chronic pain
  • and more!
