Trager® Level 2, is both a stand alone course and the second step of  the Bellingham Trager® Certification Series.

Trager Mentastics® (Mindful Movement) & Table-work are explored through demonstrations, somatic explorations and supervised practice at the table. You’ll come away with an initial  protocol to integrate into your current bodywork or somatic practice, and learn a foundation for deeper self development, certification and mastery in Trager® Approach.

Trager® Level 2 is designed for students in the fields of massage therapy, physical therapy, body-centered psychotherapy, fitness training, yoga, and other somatic movement practices. This first step in Professional Certification in the Trager® Approach can be taken as a stand-alone course. Both Mentastics® & Table-work are taught through demonstrations and supervised practice, and you’ll come away with an initial protocol to integrate into your current bodywork practice and a foundation for subsequent certification, to offer Trager® Approach as a primary modality in your practice.

The class will teach effective applications for pain and injury, and relief from symptoms of sustained social, emotional, and psychological stress. It will also highlight ways of working with manual therapy and body sensation to address the effects of internalized trauma, both recent and long past.

Trager® is a valuable approach for anyone who wants to elevate awareness in themselves and their clients.
