TRE - Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises

Whether you want to reduce stress, worry or anxiety, relax more easily, sleep better or fall asleep faster, or whether you want to strengthen your resilience or get rid of chronic muscle tension and pain in your neck, shoulders and back: TRE - the abbreviation for Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises - is a simple but very effective self-help technique that you can use all by yourself at home for the rest of your life after only 4-5 sessions. Because all the problems mentioned above are 'only' symptoms. The cause lies elsewhere. And that's where TRE comes in.

How does TRE work?

TRE® is the abbreviation for Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises and helps you reawaken the human body's innate (but "forgotten") ability to rebalance itself through spontaneous, involuntary movements. Originally developed by Dr David Berceli to help large populations recover from trauma in crisis and war zones, TRE has evolved into a unique self-help technique that has helped an estimated 5 million people in more than 60 countries around the world.


TRE® is pure bodywork and helps you release stress, relax, be clear-minded and build resilience. What could be more important at this time? TRE® also helps you to reduce anxiety and release chronic muscle tension. It makes it easy for you to quickly come back to a centered and grounded state and your find inner calm again, even when you're completely stressed out and flat out busy, short of going crazy. Ultimately, TRE® is a self-help tool that you really want to have in your toolbox, especially in turbulent times like these.


The reason TRE® is fast becoming an indispensable tool is that nervous system dysfunction due to stuck stress responses creates an imbalance between the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system. This dysfunction is both physiological and psychological. It causes the neurological, biochemical and anatomical makeup and responses in the body to be altered and thus it shape much of the personality; in fact, our personality is greatly affected by trauma. TRE® enables the release of life energy bound up by chronic stress and trauma. This in turn is necessary to enhance your performance, improve your relationships and optimise your mental health and physical well-being. Ultimately, TRE® is an indispensable aid in restoring who we really are. We become more alive, free and natural. It clears the path to living our full potential. Isn't that exactly what we all long for? Learn TRE® now. Either in the popular online course called OSHO Release Chronic Stress & Tension or in a TRE one-to-one session.

TRE and developmental trauma

TRE is commonly touted as a self-help method. This is only suitable to a limited extent in the case of developmental trauma. TRE was originally developed to resolve shock trauma. It is important for the use of TRE that the client is able to stay present and self-regulate during practice. It is important that the client only goes as far as they can stay present with what they are experiencing and that they give themselves enough time to integrate the process. It is better to handle a difficult-to-digest issue in small steps. Translated, this means that TRE can and should be practised in such cases with shorter duration and longer intervals. And often this needs expert guidance from a TRE provider. 

When using this method to resolve developmental trauma, it is important to keep in mind that the main component that contributes to sustainable healing in developmental trauma is the relationship between therapist (or facilitator, which can also be a friend) and client. This relationship must be ongoing, reliable and have very specific qualities. For example, the facilitator must be able to be fully attuned (empathise) to the client, but at the same time maintain his/her boundaries. So there must be no merging or even entanglement. The facilitator must be present without judgement, but with compassion and total acceptance. The facilitator must be able to convey to the client that she can trust and rely on the companion.


It is also important to understand that recovery from developmental trauma, by whatever method, is a process and will take some time. In the case of developmental trauma, careful consideration should be given to whether TRE can be considered as a self-help tool. If the above elements are given, TRE can indeed be used for developmental trauma. I am a testimony to it. It has helped me a lot. And I have practised alone (unaccompanied) for long stretches.

The ACE study (ACE = Adverse Childhood Experiences) shows clearly and incomprehensibly how stressful childhood experiences influence the behavior and health of those affected throughout their lives.

Trauma is on everyone's lips and yet very few have a clear understanding of what trauma actually is. Trauma is not the event, trauma is in the body. It's just a dysregulation of the nervous system.



What to do?

There is a remedy. But not everything helps. For any form of sustainable healing work, especially with trauma, it is important to include the body and the body's sensations.
