TRE for Sport
I want to improve Recovery & Performance
TRE is a cutting-edge self-care technique that supports sustainable high performance by rebalancing the neuromuscular system at its core below the level of our conscious control.
By deliberately invoking the body’s capacity to generate more strength, better co-ordination & deeper relaxation through spontaneous involuntary movement than we can create consciously, TRE helps to improve recovery from strength & conditioning training, deepens sleep quality & shifts the neurophysiology of the body towards more optimal 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.
