TRAGER® APPROACH

Trager® is a new approach to body awareness. This gentle, yet effective way of releasing patterns of tension in the mind and body has a deep and lasting effect. A Trager® session consists of table work with soft touch and gentle, non-invasive, free-flowing movements to the natural rhythm of your body as well as ‘Mentastics’, simple, effortless self-care movements which recall the freedom, flexibility and pleasure of the table work.

You may choose to be partially or fully clothed while enjoying the sensation of becoming thoroughly relaxed as the tension disappears and new movement patterns become effortlessly available.

The Trager® Approach can enhance your daily activities, sporting performance and well being and it can also be a valuable part of any rehabilitation program following trauma, surgery or injury. This system helps release deep-seated physical and mental patterns. It facilitates deep relaxation and re-educates your body-mind to a better balance and increased physical mobility.

Dr. Milton Trager discovered that the awareness for weight and lightness, gentle movements and waves, has a deeply moving effect on the body and soul. He dedicated his whole life to developing the principles that make up the Trager® Approach which is taught and supervised by Trager® International ( www.trager.com ) and the National Trager® Associations. There are certified Trager® Practitioners worldwide.

The History of the Trager® logo represents the wonderful effects of a Trager session: a famous Zen master, after a treatment by Dr. Milton Trager, exclaimed “I feel like a dancing cloud!” and drew up the picture, which later became the Dancing Cloud® logo (as shown above).

The benefits of a Trager® session are cumulative: with each treatment, as you feel the waves of well being resound through your body, ease and flexibility return and your potential for vitality grows!
