Getting a handle on stress with Tension & Trauma Release Exercises(TRE)
Tension & Trauma Release Exercises(TRE®) are a simple and acessible, yet powerfully effective way to release stress, whether that stress is manifested physically, emotionally or mentally. TRE® is a series of 7 simple exercises that evoke Neurogenic tremors(vibration, shaking) which are a safe and healthy way to discharge stress and calm the nervous system. The exercises can be modified for any body type or disability.
Benefits of TRE
Tension and Trauma Releasing exercises were originally developed to address the impacts of traumatic experiences on the body; however, we have come to learn that TRE benefits all people. Hurtful experiences, stress, and tension are part of everyone's life and we often do not realize how these experiences are etched deep in the mind and body.
TRE, unlike other modalities, is designed to rid the body of this deeply held physical tension and bring the body back to a natural balance where all the systems are working in harmony. New benefits of TRE reveal themselves everyday, as the body releases held tension and traumatic events. Healing occurs on many different levels both physical and emotional. By reducing stress and tension levels within the body, these exercises have secondary benefits that encompass many areas of an individual's life, such as those listed below.
Reported Benefits Include:
Less Worry & Anxiety
Reduces Symptoms of PTSD
