A natural way to relieve anxiety

I struggled for years before I stumbled across TRE. By that time I was in my 40s and I had been a personal trainer and health writer for over 12 years. I knew how to keep myself fit and healthy. What I didn’t know was how to get rid of the chronic anxiety I’d suffered with since I was a kid. I tried every technique I could think of to calm my mind and body, but nothing really made a difference, until I discovered TRE… (You can read my story here.)

What is TRE?

TRE (tension/trauma releasing exercises) is an innovative new way to treat anxiety, which taps into the body’s intelligence. It’s a set of simple exercises that trigger a natural shaking or vibrating in the body. This shaking reflex is something we are all born with. It’s the body’s inbuilt mechanism for releasing long-held muscle tension, calming the nervous system, and returning the body to a balanced state, where health and healing can occur.

The beauty of TRE is that…

  • it’s easy and fun
  • it only needs to be done 2-3 times a week
  • it’s effortless – the tremors do all the work!
  • it doesn’t involve talking about your stress or trauma history*
  • it leaves you feeling relaxed and peaceful

*TRE works well alongside ‘talking therapies’ such as counselling or psychotherapy.

Here’s a 5 minute animation which explains how TRE works:

Learning TRE

TRE is easy to learn. You can either book a 1:1 appointment or come to a class. Most people need around 2-3 sessions in order to practise safely and effectively at home. All sessions are held at at the WOW Clinic in Westbourne, West Sussex.

*Please note: Group classes are NOT recommended if you have any major medical or mental health conditions, or have a history of complex or severe trauma. If you have any concerns about this, please contact me for a chat before booking.

Here are some of the things people have been saying about TRE:

“TRE brings me deep relaxation and peace”
“My IBS is so much better, which is fantastic”
“A really wonderful experience”
“TRE is extraordinary”
“I felt fantastic afterwards”
“My whole body relaxes”
