Below is a 6 minute overview of TRE from a South African Medical TV show documentary – there is more information on TRE below the video as well.

TRE overview from South African TV with Dr Berceli:

Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) are a breakthrough in stress management and trauma recovery. It is a body centred process that releases deep chronic tension created during traumatic or stressful events.

It is easily learned, immediately effective and self empowering as the TRE process consists of a series of simple exercises to initiate the body’s innate tremor (shaking) mechanism (see FAQs) to release stress, tension and trauma.

  • “Much in my attitude to life has changed since doing TRE. Before I would wake most mornings with awful anxiety -now hardly ever! Over the past 20 years I have experienced many processes/counseling including Hypnotherapy, NLP, psychology sessions (EMDR, TFT, TAT, etc.) counseling, Rebirthing, Polarity therapy, Past Life regression, Crystal healing, Reiki, Bowen therapy, NET…..phew! However, the TRE sessions have been the most profound” Sue, Central Coast, NSW

TRE invokes these innate tremors in a controlled and sustained manner to release deep chronic muscular tension from the core of the body where the protective pattern of muscle contraction is created, returning the body to a more calm, relaxed and balanced state.

While originally named and developed for their ability to process severe traumas, they also have a significant impact on reducing general stress, anxiety, tension and pain, (especially in the low back and pelvis,) making them ideal not only for survivors of extreme trauma, but anyone with chronic stress and tension seeking greater wellbeing in their lives.

  • “As a psychologist, I am so excited to have discovered Trauma Release Exercises. In my experience, sometimes the talking therapies do not go deep enough. TRE is a pathway into releasing stress and trauma in a simple and private way. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this process. It is deep and profound work. I intend to continue with TRE for my own wellbeing. I am also recommending it to my clients as a process that beautifully compliments other forms of treatment.”
