TRE for Health Professionals
I want to Empower my Clients & Improve my Effectiveness
All around the world, Health Professionals are using TRE to improve their wellbeing, optimise their effectiveness & empower their clients in the self-management of their conditions.
At the heart of TRE is the deliberate use of a natural recovery reflex that rebalances the autonomic & somatic systems below the level of our conscious control, providing a stand-alone self-care technique as well as a complimentary process to support & enhance the effectiveness of existing treatments & self-care practices.
While TRE is body-based, the movements generated have a calming effect on both the body & the mind, helping to support mindfulness, deepen relaxation, enhance embodiment & improve recovery & sleep. The technique can be used in as little as 5-10 minutes simply lying on the floor or even in bed at night, making it easy & efficient when we are most time & energy poor and least likely to undertake more demanding self-care practices
TRE can be used as an early intervention strategy to ‘debrief the body’ after critical incidents, or on an ongoing & regular basis to reduce anxiety and build resilience & coping capacity in the nervous system over time. By reinforcing self-regulation & optimising neurological function, TRE provides a body-based pathway of growth & development to enhance performance & support healthy relationships in all areas of our life.
For cognitive & talk-based therapists TRE addresses the underlying neurobiology of stress & trauma to compliment & support traditional top-down treatment approaches. It also offers a trauma-informed model of health & wellbeing that integrates the body & empowers clients with a practical tool for ongoing self-regulation.
For movement, exercise & body-based practitioners TRE provides a trauma-informed model of the body & helps to optimise posture, movement & tension patterns below the level of conscious control. By regulating the autonomic & somatic systems in a reflexive way, TRE enhances the effects of hands-on treatments & supports the benefits of consciously directed movement & exercise programs such as Yoga, Pilates & general exercise.

Peer-reviewed research has shown TRE helps to reduce domestic violence & mental health conditions, as well as improving quality of life & the capacity to deal with adversity. At the individual level, the benefits of TRE are instantly verifiable using wearable technology that measures sleep quality & heart rate variability, key physiological markers of optimal wellbeing & performance.
