The Trager® Approach, developed by Milton Trager, MD combines mindful touch of Trager bodywork and the use of effortless, fluid self-care movements of Mentastics®.
By explanation, demonstration and participation (giving and receiving), you’ll learn how to use Trager principles (the foundation of the Trager Approach) both at the table and with movement exploration to enhance your client’s well-being (and yours).
Trager sessions facilitate the release of deep holding patterns and invite profound feelings of peace, ease and comfort. You will find a whole new way to ‘move’ in your life and be with your clients!
Trager concepts can be easily incorporated into your current massage work, improving your level of presence and quality of your touch, enhancing your client’s recovery and healing processes.
Tragerwork has special applications to injury rehab, neurological and orthopedic conditions, fibromyalgia, arthritis and physical/emotional trauma.
An Introductory Workshop (and receiving at least 1 session from a Certified Trager Practitioner) is a prerequisite to start the professional certification training, which is taught in several levels.
