TRE® — TENSION AND TRAUMA
Anxious. Stressed out.
These words are all too common adjectives to describe how we feel on a daily basis. Life is stressful, but that reality doesn’t have to control you. Tension and trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®) is an innovative approach to managing and mitigating the effects of stress in your body and in your life.
In this practice, you will learn a set of 7 gentle and adaptable exercises to elicit an intentional, self controlled, therapeutic muscular tremor from deep in the core of the body. This tremor reflex seeks out and gently vibrates open deeply held patterns of tension in the muscle tissue and fascia of the body while at the same time, naturally quieting and regulating the nervous system. The tremor originates in the brain stem, and because the emotional and thinking brain are not involved, historic patterns of trauma and stress can be safely and gently released without triggering painful memories.
Who benefits from TRE®?
people with ptsd and cptsd
people experiencing anxiety and panic challenges, those with varying stress levels, chronic or unexplained pain, fibromyalgia, gastro-intestinal issues, chronic headaches or migraines
TRE® is accessible and easy to learn. The intention of each session is to train you in the practice of TRE so that you can then begin to practice on your own. You will be guided and supported through these sessions to ensure that you become familiar and comfortable in the process. TRE® is meant to be a self care tool that you can access for the rest of your life to promote health and wellness on all levels.
Whether you are suffering from symptoms of post traumatic stress, or just trying to keep your head above water in a fast paced and chaotic world, TRE® has something to offer you.
Sessions are offered on an individual and group level, and consist of single sessions and series of three and five sessions. Many people find they are able to self direct their TRE® practice after three to five sessions.
TRE® is a safe and effective stress release technique for most people. The TRE process should not be used as a substitute for trauma recovery therapy or procedures of a medical or psychological nature.

what people are saying
How do you say 'thank you' to someone whose skills, talents & personality literally 'dissolved' 25+ years of shame body-armoring muscle pain, hard unidentifiable 'lumps' on the spine and trapped body trauma / tension in LESS THAN 5 SESSIONS ? Meg, i'm speechless with gratitude… absolutely verklempt!
Meg- you saved my life. Not kidding. Breathe that in for a moment… exhale release.
You helped me create a 'new & improved Me'… using the power of the breath, from the inside out, and in doing so i 'discovered' (recovered?) my most authentic true Self… By offering your "tools & skills - not pills" i found i had what it takes to "save myself"… how empowering! now i feel 'BETTER THAN EVER' because of You…
I could not have done it without you. Heartfelt thanks. Namaste!
