Bellingham, WA

Six Day Course.

What is Trager®?

Trager® is an approach developed by Milton Trager, MD who first developed the basic technique principles at the age of 18 and spent over 50 years refining his work. Trager® is a unique, neuromuscular approach to bodywork and movement re-patterning. Trager® tablework consists of deep, fluid rocking movements (oscillations) of muscles and joints combined with compression and gentle traction. This feeds into the nervous system resulting in dramatic muscular relaxation, along with feelings of lightness, freedom, and flexibility. The client is also shown simple movements called Mentastics® which are a method of self-care that teach the client to integrate the principles of the work into their daily life.

Course description and objectives:

This stand-alone six-day course is the first step of
Professional Certification in the Trager® Approach. You’ll experience and explore both Mentastics® & Table-work through demonstrations and supervised practice.

Trager® is highly effective for pain and injury. It is also valuable for working with trauma internalized in the body, from physical and psychological input, both recent and long past.

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