What is TRE?

TRE® (Tension, Stress and Trauma Releasing Exercises) is an innovative series of simple exercises which assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma by inducing a gentle muscular shaking response. This natural response generally feels pleasant and soothing, and after doing TRE many people report feelings of peace and well being.

I have been using TRE for a year and have also proposed it to various people, some very affected by trauma. The feedback is very positive. Traumatized individuals reconnect with their body, letting go and letting their bodies “do the work.” I appreciate Maria’s professional qualities both in group and individual coaching, and all underlined with a great sense of humor.

TRE was explained to me in such a beautiful and clear way by Maria. This was the practical self-healing modality I had been searching for to help our veterans find peace and healing within their own homes. TRE is a very powerful tool and I highly recommend it to all.

As a teacher, Maria is very sensitive and invigorating. She is also a warm person with a great sense of humor. She is able to inspire her students, motivate them and, perhaps most importantly, keep them laughing during some challenging times.

I was surprised how TRE helped participants release stress and trauma held in their body without the need for private, long-term, individual treatment. After experiencing TRE personally, I decided to become a Provider of TRE and Maria has been my trainer and supervisor during the certification process. She shepherded me through it providing insight, wisdom and great support. I am grateful to have had her as a mentor.
