Stressless TRE® – Trauma Recovery App









Tension Releasing Exercises (TRE®)  stretch and slightly fatigue muscles, a process that induces therapeutic tremors. These tremors release deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and trauma, calm the nervous system, and help the body return to a state of balance.

What TRE® can do:

  • Release tension from inside contracted muscles, causing deep relaxation.
  • Enable you to release stress and trauma without the need for effort, conscious control, or even awareness of the releasing process.
  • Help you release stress and trauma without having to re-live or talk about it.
  • Enable you to heal trauma that you can’t remember (because you were very young or because you dissociated).


This App .. called Stressless TRE® … takes you through the TRE® programme of exercises and is available to purchase from iTunes and GooglePlay for android.

At a cost of between £6-8, this application takes you through exercises that encourage your body to let go of trauma and achieve a deep sense of relaxation.

This application will take you through 7 different physical exercises that will encourage you body to let go and release.

This Application shows each exercise in detail through both description and videos.  There are also sections on understanding the releasing process, as well as a tracking section where you can monitor you own progress.

Power Posing, “Faking it until you become it” By Amy Cuddy


Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves.

In the TED talk below social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Amy Cuddy presents a compelling argument as to how we can change how we are perceived but also, arguably more importantly, what we believe about ourselves.
