What is Trager®?

Dr. Milton Trager recognized well before contemporary knowledge on neuroplasticity that new information introduced to areas in the unconscious mind, gently and with skill, activates positive neurological changes that improve movement patterns. He referred to his work as psychophysical integration.

Trager® Practitioners work in a calm, cultivated, meditative state, what Dr. Trager called “hook-up. “Using the language of touch and movement they promote sensory awareness and ease of movement. Trager® sessions include gentle bouncing, stroking, elongations, and a variety of playful body movements received in a calming, pleasurable atmosphere. 

Reasons for Trager® Certification: The Certification Program is expressly designed for students who want to develop Trager® Approach as a primary modality in their practice. It offers highly focused, in-depth training with the exploration, supervision, and feedback necessary for students to establish a successful Trager® practice. This training gives you a unique and deeper access to your own self-developmental awareness. Being certified also allows the practitioner to market themselves with a tangible credential. Upon certification, with their permission, the US Trager® Association lists practitioners on its website as part of its referral network.
