Introduction to TRE for Healthcare Providers
TRE® (Tension, Stress and Trauma Releasing Exercises®) is a series of simple movements that turn on our body’s natural rebalancing process—typically providing an immediate experience of relaxation. It enables the body to release deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and constriction by stimulating a gentle, involuntary, shaking response.
TRE® is extremely effective as a stand-alone practice, and it deepens all other stress-relief practices such as mindfulness, yoga and meditation.
How Does TRE® Work: TRE® was developed with the understanding that human beings are genetically encoded to contract to protect ourselves during stressful or traumatic situations. After the stressful event has passed, the next phase of the survival cycle is the release of these contractions bringing the body and mind back to an optimal state of balance.
However, the way the body releases these contractions is through a reflexive, involuntary
shaking and tremoring response. Culturally, we’ve been conditioned to believe that shaking is a sign of weakness. Very early on we learn to unconsciously inhibit this healing response—often by tensing even more. TRE® interrupts incomplete looping defense responses by reactivating this natural healing mechanism-- letting our nervous system know it is now safe to return to a state of balance, relaxation and calm.
