TRE for Sport
I want to improve Recovery & Performance
TRE is a cutting-edge self-care technique that rebalances the neuromuscular system at its core below the level of our conscious control.
By deliberately invoking the body’s capacity to create deeper relaxation & more efficient & effective movement patterns through spontaneous involuntary movements than we are able to create consciously, TRE supports existing approaches, enhances recovery from strength & conditioning training, improves sleep quality & heart rate variability & empowers athletes to shift the neurophysiology of their mind & body into peak performance states.
For Stress Management
By regulating the autonomic nervous system & releasing neuromuscular tension below the level of conscious control, TRE provides an additional body-based entry-point to reduce stress & performance anxiety and improve performance under pressure, in a significantly different, yet complimentary way to consciously directed techniques such as mindfulness, visualisation, relaxation, stretching & breath training.
Recovery & HRV
By down-regulating the autonomic nervous system, relaxing the neuromuscular system and generating spontaneous movements that stimulate blood-flow, lymphatic drainage & tissue repair, TRE helps to reduce training soreness & recovery times, improves overnight Heart Rate Variability & offers a viable alternative to ice baths when they are unavailable or not preferred.
By activating spontaneous movements that calm the autonomic nervous system in a significantly different way than we are able to do consciously, TRE supports & enhances the effects of consciously directed calming techniques and can be deliberately used lying in bed to improve sleep quality & assist with getting to sleep after high intensity training & performance.
Strength & Conditioning
By reducing training soreness & recovery times, TRE supports the sustainable high performance of ongoing strength & conditioning training. As ‘neurogenic movements’ have the capacity to generate greater contractile force than we can create consciously in a 1 repetition maximum effort, integrating TRE into resistance training programs also provides a competitive strength advantage.
Dynamic Core Stability
By improving functional neurology, rebalancing neuromuscular tension & reorganising posture, balance & movement patterns below the level of conscious awareness & control, TRE provides a game-changing approach to optimise dynamic core stability at the subconscious & automatic levels of movement, helping to prevent injury, improve skills performance & enhance static core stability training techniques.
Getting in the Zone
By naturally slowing brain waves & generating meditative ‘flow’ states, TRE provides a cutting-edge technique to train the ‘clear-mind’ required for peak performance & the execution of skills under pressure. While supporting & enhancing mindfulness & visualisation, TRE provides a significantly different, yet complimentary approach that integrates flow states with movement & skills performance in normal waking states.
Why Athletes Like TRE
As TRE requires almost no mental focus & little physical effort, it is easy & efficient when athletes are most fatigued & energy poor. It provides a viable alternative to ice baths & can be used alone or in groups in as little as 5-10 minutes, or even used lying in bed to assist with sleep.
Easily integrated into existing recovery routines, TRE can also be used to help reduce performance anxiety & access the ‘clear-mind’ states required for peak-performance. Practiced together as a team, TRE offers a cutting-edge neurobiological pathway to team bonding & collective flow states central to elite team performance.

“My tremors appeared quite subtle but clearly big results still occur.”

“Not only does TRE help my athletes concentrate & train better, it calms their nervous system so they can get to sleep & improves the quality of their sleep as well.”

Training Peaceful Warriors
Originally developed to empower large populations in their recovery from mass-scale trauma, TRE is now at the cutting edge of elite recovery & performance training. In Australia, Professional Surfers, Olympic Athletes, Elite Volleyballers & AFL Footballers are already using TRE & other similar ‘tremoring techniques.’ The use of spontaneous movement for elite performance however is not without precedent.
The Ancient Samurai practiced a similar technique called Seiki Jutsu, a key to their super-human capacities & their ability to be lethal warriors one moment then chilled out Zen masters the next. Along with other martial arts such as Katsugen Undo & the use of shaking in Qigong, spontaneous involuntary movement has been used to support a culture of elite performance amongst warriors for many generations.
