Tension & Trauma Release Exercises TRE®
TRE® is a simple yet innovative series of DIY exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. TRE safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance. For the nerve system the benefits are better sleep, less workplace stress, burnout prevention, reduced symptoms of PTSD and calm nerves. For the fascia and muscle system the benefits are, reduced back pain, neck pain, and reduced tensions in the joints. TRE is a very elegant method to relax the psoas muscle and to release tensions deep inside the pelvis and the lower spine. After the session you feel relaxed, grounded and full of life energy.
