What is TREŽ?

TREŽ stands for Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises, a fast, highly effective method of trauma and long term stress recovery. It is a body based modality that initiates a deep muscle release through the nervous system in a safe and simple way.

TRE consists of six simple exercises that help individuals release tension from the muscles, which in turn relaxes the anxiety of our minds, by evoking a muscular shaking process in the body.


Who can Benefit from TREŽ?

This natural process of release makes TREŽ available and beneficial for everyone whether you are suffering from mild stress or deep seated trauma. TREŽ increases the resilience of the body through deep relaxation, naturally reducing stress and anxiety levels.

It can release on both a physical and emotional level caused by work stress, excessive worry, conflict in relationships, physical stresses or traumas from accidents, injuries and operations. Additionally, TREŽ has been reported to reduce pain, increase mobility and aid in the healing of past injuries.

Whether you are a parent/spouse who would like more patience with your family, a victim of violence or accident, a soldier suffering with PTSD, or simply a person who wants to become more resilient and just feel better about life, you can benefit TRE.

TREŽ is a self-empowering method of releasing the everyday stress, tension and anxiety that comes from the daily pressures of life. Once learned, this process can be done on your own with occasional assistance from a certified practitioner.


Why use TREŽ?

When tension is released anywhere in the body, the brain registers a reduction in pain signals, producing new hormones that promote healing. An enhancing attribute of the TREŽ process is that the negative effects of trauma are released without having to actually relive, remember or talk about the event.


Who created TREŽ?

Dr. David Berceli is the creator of Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE).

David has spent two decades living and working in nine countries providing trauma relief workshops and designing recovery programs for international organizations around the world. He has lived and worked extensively in Israel/Palestine, Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Yemen, Egypt, and Lebanon.

David continues to be involved in trauma recovery programs, not solely for the sake of reducing the suffering caused by trauma but because he has recognized globally that trauma possesses unique possibilities of transformation in the individual, if they pursue their recovery process to its ultimate end.


I offer one-on-one sessions as well as 6-week group courses

You will learn a simple technique that helps your body release stress or tension that has accumulated from day-to-day life experiences, immediate or ongoing stressful situations, and traumatic life events.
