TRE Trauma Release Exercises

 What is TRE? (TRE tremors)

  • A Simple Stress Management Tool
  • Easy To Learn
  • A way to calm the Nervous System
  • Natural mechanism for self care

Trauma Release Exercises process (or finding your TRE tremors) are a series of simple exercises that help the body to release deep patterns of trauma, stress and tension.

The process of physical and psychological transformation that can occur with a regular TRE practice is often astonishing and life changing.

TRE is natural and organic and often reaches the parts that traditional anxiety  therapies cannot reach.

TRE – Tension and Trauma Release

YOU may have heard the phrase ‘the issues are in the tissues’ and often we find that our bodies have ‘frozen’ with pain or become locked down with uncomfortable tension that we find difficult to release. Many of us live in this state for years with no relief.

This is where the TRE process can help as it guides us to return to our natural state of balance.

Developed by Dr David Berceli, Tension &Trauma Release Exercises is a physical technique which can help the body let go of deeply held, negative patterns by accessing our natural tremor mechanism.  

The TRE tremors tap into the body’s ‘internal release tool’ to discharge tension and trauma held in the tissues.

Once you have safely learned how to access your tremor you can let your body do its own healing and gently disperse stress and tension.


Often, to fully move on from traumatic events, we need to work with the whole body/mind system and include our physiology in the process to help reset over active reflexes in the nervous system.

We can get stuck in patterns of fight, flight, freeze and flop which produce feelings of anger, fear, being stuck and ‘zoning out’.

These chronic patterns can also manifest as

  • Insomnia
  • Inflammation
  • Hyper-vigilance
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • IBS/digestive issues
  • Fibromyalgia/CFS
  • Migraine
  • Or simply feeling tired, anxious or scared all the time

Trauma Release Exercises help us to increase our ‘window of tolerance’ on the world in a simple and empowering way. Using this simple technique is a way of ‘you healing you’.

I have found TRE to be life changing, both for myself, and for my clients. 

I sincerely hope you will too.

Kate is a deeply caring and warm character. After she described her work in the field of EFT therapy (‘tapping’) I asked for a trial consultation. Within one hour Kate had not only helped me identify, but also shifted two major blocks I was holding on. I cannot recommend Kate highly enough for overcoming the inevitable emotional stress of modern society. Yoga and meditation are great, Kate’s EFT is better!

Kate is a caring, empathetic and a great therapist. She is personable and approachable and I would certainly recommend her services. If you are in need of a safe space to be held whilst healing Kate is certainly the person to see. 

I am very happy to recommend Kate.  She helped to empower me around a difficult work situation which was really stressing me out. I was feeling very vulnerable when we began to work together but I quickly felt very safe with her; she has the ability to get to the heart of the matter gracefully and confidently. She helped me unlock different angles and reframe my issues.  By the end of our sessions, I felt released and also understood more about what had been blocking me.
