TRE on the floor


Founded by Dr David Berceli, TRE (Stress, Tension and Trauma Release Exercises) activates the body's instinctive tremor mechanism in a safe and controlled way. These tremors release the tension that builds up in our bodies because of every day stressors and challenging life events. 


  • improve sleep, energy levels, focus and concentration
  • reduce tension, stress, pain, anxiety and depression
  • recover more easily from injuries
  • build more harmonious relationships and stronger social connections
  • develop greater resilience

Hannah explains how TRE has helped release the tension in her shoulders and relieve her anxiety and depression:

Led by international TRE Certification Trainer Ingrid Regenass, this 3-day experiential workshop is perfect if you want to learn about and practice a technique you can use for your own health, healing and self-care.

It is also the first step in the TRE Global Certification Training Programme (GCTP) for those who want to learn how to use TRE in a therapeutic or healing context to help others release stress, tension and trauma.


"I did my TRE training when I was going through a very challenging time in my life... it was the beginning of a transformational phase for me.

I pursued the training mostly for my own healing and it certainly did deepen my knowledge of TRE and engage me to practice regularly. 

Ingrid facilitated with passion and commitment. She has an extensive knowledge of how the physical and emotional body operate and practices with caution and respect. This woman really has dedicated her life to alleviating suffering and restoring the traumatised. I’m eternally in gratitude to her. 

TRE is beautiful, simple and extremely effective, everyone should have access to it."

Have a taste of the basic skills of teaching TRE to others

This practical workshop covers the basic theory of TRE and includes several opportunities to practice TRE. It will help you develop the skills you need to manage your own stress better. TRE is effective as a stand-alone practice and also enhances other stress relief practices such as mindfulness, yoga and meditation. 


This 3-day workshop is open to the general public and is ideal for anyone who wants to learn a valuable self-care technique that can be used to manage stress and tension for the rest of their lives. TRE promotes inner peace and wellbeing and helps to increase resilience to life's inevitable challenging events. 

TRE can also be used by professionals whose work supports those affected by stress, tension, anxiety and trauma and who want to add a body-based, self-empowering techinque to their existing services. 

This includes therapists, counsellors, social workers, occupational therapists, osteopaths, physiotherapists, doctors, chiropractors, cranio-sacral therapists, bodyworkers, coaches, parents, teachers, fitness instructors and others in alternative health fields. 

Those who wish to teach TRE to others or use it as a therapeutic technique will need to certify as TRE Providers. This requires completion of the full TRE Global Certification Training Programme (GCTP).

Certification in the GCTP requires participation in a second 3-day workshop and a comprehensive supervision programme. The process usually takes around 12 months depending on each participant's personal progress. Full programme details are available on request. 

PLEASE NOTE: Attending the 3-day Exploring TRE workshop does not equip you with the skills and competencies required or qualify you to teach TRE to others.

"As a counsellor I often work with loss and grief, and I could sense that in many of the clients the trauma and experience of loss sits in the body - and just talking does not give access to that deep-rooted experience of loss. 

I heard of TRE and after an open class with Ingrid, I was so fascinated by the process, that I signed up for the training. And looking back, maybe co-incidentially, but maybe because of what TRE does, a lot of life-transformative processes happened to me during my training.  

As a teacher, Ingrid created a safe and welcoming space for all of us. She inspires students, motivates them - and most importantly, can listen to and laugh with students as a fellow human being.  

Any student will be lucky to have Ingrid as a teacher!”

"If you are still considering doing the TRE training, don’t consider it, do it! It will truly be one of the most valuable gifts you will give yourself. 

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that TRE and in particular the provider training, was life saving for me. And I couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgeable, caring and supportive trainer than Ingrid. 

I had done TRE for an extended length of time before doing the training and the benefits were immense. But doing TRE as a client only is one-dimensional. It’s a bit like having a paint-by-numbers portrait. You can see all the elements of the scene but it lacks colour, depth, contrast, texture and light. Having done the training allowed me to colour in the portrait and make it a work of art and bring it to life. 

Ingrid was the perfect mentor to help me do this. I have since successfully used the training and applied it in a myriad of different contexts from school students to professional sportsmen and women, private clients and I still regularly use it myself. 

The old adage of 'you stop teaching when you stop learning' is certainly true for TRE and the people’s lives you will change through it. The more you know, the more people you can support and the more your life will change as well, for the better. "  

Warwick Wade Business Owner (former teacher)  


I was introduced to TRE some years ago after having had experienced personal chronic anxiety and trauma. I was so impressed with the benefits of the technique, that I decided I wanted to share it with others. 

I joined the TRE training programme at Integral Health, studying under Ingrid Regenass. I was a little apprehensive at first as I felt quite vulnerable in a group setting. However, Ingrid conducted the sessions in such a way that I felt held and safe at all times. The extent to which Ingrid shared insight, experience and learning material was extremely professional and thorough. 

I left the course feeling confident and supported for my own practice. I would highly recommend this training.”
