We all know that stress affects everyone, everywhere, all the time. It’s inescapable. It’s invasive. It’s infectious. Stress changes our lives in fundamental ways. It impacts the way our DNA functions, how we relate to loved ones, how well our businesses and organizations operate, even our financial well-being.
There are many approaches to reducing stress, but these approaches may not be getting to the heart of the matter. There is a way to accelerate stress release that we often ignore—The answer is actually already inside your body. It’s a practice that activates your body’s natural response for releasing stress at its root. This is the practice that people come to when nothing else has truly worked.
This practice is Tension Release Exercises (TRE®).
TRE® is a simple and quick set of movements that turn on our body’s natural rebalancing process—providing an immediate experience of relaxation. By releasing everything from everyday stress to deeply held physical tension and trauma, TRE® frees us up to meet life’s challenges with greater skill and ease. Best of all, our bodies do the work; we get relief without needing to process or retell our story.
TRE® is extremely effective as a stand-alone practice, and it deepens all other stress-relief practices such as mindfulness, yoga, and meditation.

Nkem is a super mentor. Simultaneously, she was able to enlighten, encourage, instruct, inspire, and support me in my journey to become more capable as a TRE practitioner. In my experience, counsel the quality of Nkem's is rare indeed and I feel so fortunate to learn from and work with her.
TRE came to my attention through one of our group members. I was skeptical at first, but was convinced of the benefits of the TRE practice after the first session that I attended. Approximately 48 individuals have participated in the TRE series at Cancer Support Community Pasadena since September, 2014, and the positive word-of-mouth has spread so much that each scheduled series has an extensive waitlist. Our members report better stress management, deeper relaxation, and better sleep. One participant was so excited because she no longer needs sleeping pills since completing the TRE series and utilizing the practice at home. The therapeutic tremor is a natural, pleasurable, and relaxing experience with long term benefits. Nkem is a fabulous instructor as well as a caring, giving human being.
As an educator and coordinator of classes for a major trauma center, I had the challenge of finding techniques that will help nurses deal with the trauma they see every day. TRE Los Angeles held several TRE classes for more than 150 registered nurses. Since then, nurses have reported to me that the TRE has benefited them by releasing the trauma that they have held in over so many years. Nkem explained the science behind TRE simply and put us at ease. We all had a sense of looseness and calmness after the class. It felt natural and easy. I myself have incorporated TRE in my evening regimen and I go to sleep with ease, and sleep well for 7-8 hours a night!
TRE was simple and profound. It is powerful to know that my body has the wisdom to take care of itself. TRE has given me an easy tool to use anywhere. Now that my body has been turned on, it chooses TRE on its own. I have the choice to use it on the spot or wait until later. I feel relaxed and clear after shaking. I know the release is deep and long lasting.
