What does TRE® for All report are the benefits?

TRE® for All is the professional body for TRE® globally. It has a very useful website that can be found here and its mission statement is as follows:

TRE® – tension release for everybody and every body.

The accumulation of stress and trauma and lack of tension release creates dysregulated nervous systems and fosters conflict, hostility and aggression among humans.

TRE For All (TFA) supports health, well-being and harmony by providing safe access to tension releasing exercises (TRE®); an effective stress and tension reduction technique that returns the body and nervous system to a healthy baseline.

TFA wants to provide the whole human family - everyone and every body - with training on how to reduce tension and the neurobiological effects of trauma by teaching them how to easily tend to and regulate their own nervous system to help create a sustainable and more peaceful world.

Benefits are reported as follows:

  • Less Worry & Anxiety
  • Reduces Symptoms of PTSD
  • More Energy & Endurance
  • Improved Marital Relationships
  • Less Workplace Stress
  • Better Sleep
  • Less Relationship Conflict
  • Reduced Muscle & Back Pain
  • Increased Flexibility
  • Greater Emotional Resiliency
  • Decreases Symptoms of Vicarious Trauma
  • Healing of Old Injuries
  • Lessened Anxiety surrounding Serious Illness
  • Relief from Chronic Medical Conditions

The range of benefits are further enhanced by the way TRE® can be practised at home, without the need for a practitioner. Learning TRE® and then being able to do it to support stress release, whenever and wherever you like, is such an empowering aspect of this practice. My sessions help you to feel comfortable and confident doing this.

What do people say about TRE® with Kate?

People who do TRE® are often surprised by the results. Some come for a few sessions to kickstart their self-practice, whereas others enjoy the regular group sessions - social engagement is a key dimension of group sessions and nervous systems really do 'speak' to each other. Some of what people have said about TRE® is included below:

Stress relief/Giving energy:

'It’s been the best weekly addition to my life & I always leave one of Kate’s group sessions feeling so much better in my mind & body than when I walked through the door.'

'The whole experience is so uplifting and relaxing. By the end of the session you leave feeling so relaxed and energised. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.'

'I felt at ease straightaway and felt my stress and anxiety levels drop as the session went on to the point where there is a noticeable difference in me physically too … no visible tension in my body language!'

Managing emotions:

'I would highly recommend giving TRE® a try and even more so with Kate. My plan is to continue the TRE® practice at home and then top it up so to speak every so often in one of the group sessions that Kate runs. TRE® has really had a huge impact on helping me to manage my emotional well-being more effectively.'

'I have smiled much more since the session.'

Relief from medical conditions/pain/symptoms of trauma:

'I have ongoing struggles with my health and past traumas and have always held a lot of tension and stress in my body. I’ve practiced yoga and mindfulness but have never been able to relax or stop the constant ‘busyness’ in my mind. I’ve been amazed how TRE® with Kate has helped to release this tension and stress, and it really does feel like a release.'

'Kate was recommended as my son has ADHD and the issue seemed to be linked with tension. My son had 3 sessions with Kate which he enjoyed and found it not only sorted his hip but gave him some methods to relax in an engaged way.'

'I noticed my "crunchy neck" does not crunch anymore since starting TRE®. I expect I carried tension in my neck which has been released by TRE®.'

'I left the session feeling relaxed and re-energised. As an added bonus the long standing lower back pain I had suffered from just disappeared!'

Support with sleep:

'I felt calm and relaxed after the session and had a super nights sleep.'
