If you’ve experienced the magic of TRE and you’re ready to deepen your practice OR you need some extra TLC to get you through these challenging times, join a TRE Refresher Group.

These groups are specifically for people who've learned the basics of TRE, who want to get (back!) into the habit of regular shaking and who would love the support and community of a group experience.

A regular TRE practice can leave you feeling more energised, more in control, less stressed, mentally stronger, able
to cope better under pressure and more patient with your family, friends and colleagues. 

TRE (Stress, Tension and Trauma Release Exercises) is a simple but powerful self-care practice you can use anywhere, any time you notice your stress, tension and anxiety levels starting to rise.
