When life asks more of you than you can handle, you’re stressed!

Financial responsibilities, health challenges, work or school deadlines, parenting, caregiving, and on and on and on. You are juggling too much and yet there is no end in sight. Being overstretched isn’t just uncomfortable; it leads to health problems, poor decision-making, and relationship difficulties.  All of these, in turn, lead to more stress. It’s a vicious cycle.

But when you have adequate resources and feel strong and capable, you can competently manage those same responsibilities with ease and fluid grace.

So how do you navigate from stress to success?

Easy to learn and simple to practice, Tension Release Exercises (TRE®) are an immediately effective solution. Different than yoga, meditation, working out, or counseling, TRE® activates your body’s own natural rebalancing ability. With independent practice, you are empowered to release stress, feel relaxed in your body, and reclaim your full potential.

Learning this unique method with certified professionals ensures your safety and comfort. With expert guidance, the TRE® movement sequence is personalized for your body type and physical abilities.  You learn the latest science and practice developments. Ongoing skilled support helps you to develop a regular practice for deep, lasting positive change.

  • I have struggled with depression, PTSD, and many other mental and physical issues for more than 35 years. This process has been instrumental in my self-healing, and allowed my body to physically release tension and trauma so gently! I used to take a lot of medicine: 60 mg of Prozac, 150mg of Wellbutrin, 10mg of Xanax, 50mg of Trazodone, 5mg of Ambien; now, because of TRE and my supporting inner work, I am only taking 20mg of Prozac medication. I feel so much better in my body and very capable of living my life, while more easily handling my day to day. I am so excited for my next steps and so grateful to TRE for giving me my life back.

  • TRE has helped me tremendously with my emotional, mental, and physical health. I came from a background of holding in traumas, both big and small. Prior to learning about TRE, I didn’t realize how much of this was hindering my healing process. With the guidance of Nkem, these exercises help alleviate tension and I am able to manage my daily stress. Though I have much more to heal, I am confident that I have the tools and resources to work on my optimal wellbeing.

  • TRE has been helpful to me by bringing greater integration to my activities. I feel less tense and anxious. I feel more clear in my view of life as fun and engaging. I feel freer to be more of who I am. I am less afraid.

  • 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.
