tension Releasing Exercises (TRE®)
Chronic stress and trauma tense your body, causing suffering like sleeplessness, back pain, headache, anxiety, anger, digestive issues or burn-out.
TRE® is a pleasant and easy technique that helps you release current or past tension from stress, anxiety or trauma, without having to talk or remember. These exercises help release deep chronic muscular and fascia tension, which in turn relaxes the mind.
The innovative and easy exercises evoke a muscular tremor process, called “neurogenic tremors”. They cause your body to voluntary shake in a pleasant and controlled manner. Your muscles “let go” of any stored tension, providing you with a relaxed, relieved and grounded feeling.
What are Tension Releasing Exercises (TRE®)?
There are seven straightforward exercises that activate and stretch the muscles from feet to hips. The exercises are inspired by Yoga, Tai Chi and bio-energetic.
The simple exercises prepare for a muscular tremor process, starting with slight and pleasant vibration in your legs. Once tremors are activated, your body vibrates calmly by itself. These vibrations or tremors are your body’s natural way to release tension.
In my experience, the combination of the mind- and body-based techniques are most transformative, as a calm nervous system supports the impact of new beliefs and visa versa.
