External conflict comes to an end with the dawn of internal peace. (David Berceli, PhD)

Welcome to TRE® FOR AFRICA

This website is an information resource for TRE® (Tension and Trauma Release Exercise) for  South Africa and neighboring countries.

TRE® (Tension and Trauma Release Exercise) is a simple set of movements that turn on our body’s natural re balancing process – providing immediate relaxation. By releasing everything from everyday stress to deeply held physical tension and trauma, TRE® frees us up to meet life’s challenges with greater skill and ease.  Our bodies do the work; we get relief without needing to process or retell our story.

TRE® as a new method to manage stress and release trauma, works on many levels:

Neurologically: helps to restore the capacity of the brain to operate from higher cortical functions – improving concentration & focus and helps to restore our autonomic nervous system  – leaving us feeling calmer, more peaceful, balanced and connected

Anatomically: helps to relax muscles and fascia improving posture and mobility

Biochemically: helps to rebalance the body’s chemistry thereby restoring homeostasis

Within the context of South Africa, TRE® is a powerful modality to assist a wide variety of individuals and groups to cope better with the daily demands of life.

It is a self- directed, empowering modality for ongoing stress release and relief from symptoms in the aftermath of traumatic experience.
Continued practice is proven to substantially raise emotional and physical resilience.

While TRE® is extremely effective as a stand-alone practice, it also deepens all other stress-relief practices such as mindfulness, yoga, and meditation and supports trauma counselling and psychological interventions.
