- What is TRE® -
TRE® (Tension Releasing Exercises) is an internationally very well known self-help method, developed by Dr. David Berceli, to release deep (chronic) tension and daily stress.
This method consists of 7 accessible exercises. The exercises enable the body and nervous system to activate our natural self-healing ability and release (deep) muscle tension created by shock, stress, anxiety or trauma.
These exercises help relieve stress or trauma, prevent mental burnout, restore balance and build strength.
As a result, you gain more inner calm and peace, can more easily deal with stressful factors and release tension safely.
These simple exercises are highly recommended for people who experience chronic stress or trauma in everyday life.
- How TRE® works -
Universally, every body reacts the same way when unpleasant and/or dangerous events occur: with fight / flight / immobility response. In a primary response, we contract certain muscle groups that protect our most vulnerable part of the body: the lower abdomen.
The psoas muscles connect the back to the pelvis and legs. When faced with a dangerous or stressful situation, these muscles contract until the danger is gone. As a recovery, the body then wants to "twitch/shake" the muscles to release from the protective tension.
This is what you see both small children and also animals do after stressful events.
Because the powerful psoas muscles vibrate, in the center of our body, this resonates throughout the body. As a result, (deep-chronic) tensions are resolved naturally.
Adults, unfortunately, have often suppressed and unlearned this important tremors. We safely reawaken this mechanism with TRE®.
However, the body can only release when it is safe, relaxed and in the here and now. Therefore, during the sessions we pay a lot of attention to the techniques of self-regulation so that a release can happen in a safe and comfortable way. And they are very useful skills that you can use on a daily basis!

- TRE® in no way replaces medical and/or psychological treatment. It goes without saying that in case of health problems you should consult your doctor and/or psychologist.
- You follow these sessions for yourself and should not offer TRE® to others unless you have completed an accredited TRE® provider training.

Because the body needs time to trust the process, and the mind - to remember the exercises and to learn self-regulation, I recommend you to take at least 3 sessions with a provider (but of course, the choice is yours). You can do it individually or in duo with for example your friend or partner, or in group.
After that, you will have an easy & efficient relaxation tool for life, which you can take with you anywhere and can practice on your own.
