TRE For Musicians and Artists


Why Use TRE In Music and Artistic Training?  TRE helps teach you how to use your body's own unique natural movement reflexes to rebalance and harmonize your nervous system in new ways that are below the level of the conscious mind.   By learning to listen and following your body's natural spontaneous movements in real time, your body is able to share a very unique and artistic story that helps you to enhance your performance, improvisation workflow, and spontaneous creativity.

By learning how to intentionally evoke and follow your body's natural spontaneous movement process, when used regularly this technique directly helps you to eliminate restrictive, unwanted muscular tension and fatigue that interferes with practicing and playing.  in addition, using TRE can also create greater ease and freedom in your performance so you playing continues to feel effortless so you can keep enjoying and sharing the music you love.  


By interacting and training with movement at lower subconscious levels, this not only helps with technique efficiency when practicing and performing, but it also helps you to more easily access your mind-body's "flow-state" and further develop that true self-expressiveness that is easily identified as your sound.  TRE supports and complements all other existing music and technique training types and approaches.  In addition, it helps improves sleep quality and helps reduce risk of injury from continuous and repetitive practice and performance.  




Why TRE Works for Musicians and Artists:   TRE can be used for as little as 5-10 minutes a few hours before playing/performing and/or immediately following to help release any built up stress or muscular tension that may be present.  This can help an artist feel more at ease during their performance or help with better recovery following.  It is an easy to use technique when your energy levels are especially low or when you are feeling exhausted and in some cases can even help balance and restore energy levels.  TRE integrates easily into any musical instrument, voice, or exercise training program and can provide alternatives to things like static stretching other means of stress reducing techniques thus allowing an musician or artist a more focused approach to engaging and relaxing the neuromuscular system through use of spontaneous movements.   


TRE can also help reduce performance anxiety, so you can access a more "clear-mind" states that you know is important for peak-performance with ease.   When used as a group, TRE also offers a cutting-edge neurobiological pathways for group bonding and collective cohesiveness that can enhance flow states and communications central to high level performance.  






What Are Musicians and Artists Experiencing and What Are The Benefits of TRE?


  • STRESS MANAGEMENT:  By releasing neuromuscular tension below the level of conscious control, TRE provides an additional body-based entry point to reduce stress and performance anxiety and improve performance under pressure.  It can also be used immediately following training to reduce unwanted stress and tension from being carried into next day training.

  • INJURY PREVENTION:  TRE allows your body to address in the moment needs and can help immediately reduce unwanted tension and soreness that sometimes develops from continuous training or back to back performances 

  • ENHANCEMENT MUSCLE MEMORY:  TRE works to help reveal chronic tension and stress patterns that sometimes can interfere with muscle memory, ultimately allowing you to perform with greater ease and movement efficiency

  • EXERCISE AND HEALTH:  TRE provides a unique and personalized way of spontaneously allowing your body to move so you discover healthy ways that often complement very well with other top down training models like strength and conditioning, pilates, yoga, and cardiovascular training.   

  • FLOW STATE  Entrain 'flow' state to help maintain focus, decrease distractions, and improve decision making and performance skills under pressure.  

  • PERFORMANCE RECOVERY:  Through rebalancing of the autonomic nervous system following performance, TRE helps reduce playing fatigue and offers additional alternative recovery training options

  • SLEEP:  TRE helps with immediate calming of the autonomic nervous system following long bouts of practicing and performances and can be used when lying in bed to improve sleep quality and assist with falling asleep so you can be well rested for next day performance and training.

  • SELF EXPRESSION:  TRE allows you to reach and explore depths of artist potential that sometimes are harder to get to with cognitive based training and can allow for a more authentic and true sound to emerge 

  • CREATIVITY:  Safely explore the unknown with your body's guidance and access and generate movements that inspire and support creativity in your music performance
