Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) – what it is and how it can help you
I love my hands-on work – but with the overnight lockdown landing in March 2020 I was suddenly unable to perform any of my usual therapies for a while. I have been helping clients overcome pain, stress and tension since 2004, but now my hands were tied.
At the time I was also nursing a double-sided Achilles injury. This became worse over the first weeks of lockdown, so I couldn’t even go for a walk, let alone a run (my go-to sport to de-stress). Then, quite suddenly, an old back injury and a shoulder niggle returned for no particular reason.
I didn’t feel sorry for myself but I needed to find a way to get over my own physical niggles. I also felt frustrated and sad that I couldn't serve my clients but I still wanted to help people overcome their challenges.
What could I do to help the world overcome this collective trauma, one person at a time?
I googled various things and stumbled across TRE.
