“We don’t shake with fear, we shake to be free of it”
TRE is a revolutionary approach that deliberately invokes the body’s innate shaking and tremoring reflex to physically release the effects of chronic stress and unresolved tension and trauma.
TRE involves a paradigm shift in understanding that the shaking and tremoring commonly experienced during stressful or traumatic experiences is not a ‘symptom’ of being scared, nervous or overwhelmed, but rather a key part of our in-built recovery processes to cope with stress and trauma and to restore our body and mind to a calm and relaxed state afterwards.
Using simple exercises to invoke the tremors in a safe and controlled way, TRE focuses upon the physical release of stress and tension and therefor does not require talking about feelings or past experiences. A key component of TRE is learning to regulate the tremors so you are always in control of the process. This means the vast majority of people are able to use TRE on their own without assistance – even as simply as lying in bed before sleep.
Regardless of the cause of your stress and tension, or whether it occurred recently or long ago , TRE provides an empowering resource you can use to literally shake off stress and tension on an ongoing and regular basis for the rest of your life.
