TRE for Health Professionals
I want to improve my Wellbeing & Empower my Clients
All around the world, Health Professionals are using TRE to help optimise their mental health & physical wellbeing and 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 at their core below the level of our conscious control, providing a stand-alone self-care technique as well as a complimentary process to support & enhance the effects of other 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 TRE easy & efficient when Health Workers 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 neurophysiological resilience & coping capacity in the nervous system. By optimising neurological function & reinforcing self-regulation, TRE provides a neurobiological pathway of growth & development to enhance work performance & support healthy relationships in all areas of life.
For cognitive, trauma & talk-based therapists TRE provides a bottom-up technique that addresses the underlying neurobiology of stress & trauma to compliment & support existing treatment approaches. It also offers a trauma-informed model of health & wellbeing that integrates the body & empowers clients with a practical tool for 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 re-regulating the autonomic & neuromuscular systems in a reflexive way, TRE enhances the effects of hands-on treatments & provides a significantly different entry point to consciously directed movement & exercise programs.

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.
