What is Chronic Pain
Chronic Pain results from exhausting the body’s adaptive capacity through, injury, trauma, or long term, maladaptive load. This results in psychologic and neurologic changes contributing to chronic pain experience. This course teaches techniques to reset the brain, nervous system, and body towards a state of health and regulation.

What is Trager®? Trager is a unique, neuromuscular approach to bodywork and movement re-patterning that is trauma informed, facially focused, and autonomic regulating. The 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. 

Milton Trager, MD, who became aware of the basic principles at the age of 18, spent over 50 years refining this unique approach to somatic movement therapy and bodywork.

Trager® stands alone and beautifully complements other styles of massage. Come and learn the language of the neuromuscular system, and turn the temporary release of tension into an ongoing dissolution of muscular tension patterns. This Introductory Workshop also serves as a prerequisite for the Trager® Level 1 Training leading towards certification as a Trager Practitioner.

Treating the Source of Headache Pain
Saturday, October 30th, 2021
Sacred Roots Massage School, Missoula, MT
9am-6pm, 8 NCBTMB approved CE hours

See Below for Sunday, October 31st, Missoula Class (Discount $50 when signing up for both classes).

Headaches refer to a broad range of pain experienced in the head, face and skull. They derive from any combination of various structures including nerves, sutures, sinuses, arteries,
muscles, and the functional and structural abnormalities. Sources can be both local and remote from the site of pain.

MMF_SF (1)The key to treating headaches is combining the client’s symptom profile with incisive history taking and prolific palpatory assessment. We can then differentiate among the many sources and types of headache and base our treatments accordingly.

In this workshop we’ll differentiate between facial, sutural, TMJ, neurologic, structural and vestibular causes that result in migraine, tension, sinus, cluster and other headaches. We’ll learn both their presentation and targeted methods of treatment.

February

Trager® Level 2 (second module)
Bellingham Certification Series

February 18-20th and 25-27th, 2021 
48 NCBTMB Approved ce’s
*Prerequisite: Level 1 

Instructor: Michael Lear. Assisted by Joe Rodin.  
Bellingham, WA

*Contact info@seattlemanualtherapy.com for prerequisite possibilities.

Trager® has become known as a highly effective neuro-fascial approach to bodywork and somatic movement therapy with applications in rehabilitation, movement re-patterning and psychophysical integration.

The tablework, involving deep, fluid rocking movements (oscillations) of muscles and joints combined with gentle traction and compression, feeds the brain’s natural neuroplasticity and induces dramatic muscular relaxation, along with feelings of lightness, freedom, and flexibility. Sessions also include individualized, mindful, somatic movement explorations called Mentastics®. 

Trager® Level 2, which can also be a stand alone workshop, is the second step of our Bellingham Trager® Certification Series, designed for students to experience a deeper level of personal, professional, and spiritual integration while developing Trager® Approach as a primary modality in their practice. You’ll come away with an initial protocol to integrate into your current bodywork practice and a foundation for development and certification in the Trager® Approach.

The Bellingham Trager® Certification series is an in-depth, ten month training, providing the skills and support necessary to integrate highly proficient Trager® work into your successful practice, to expand the number of presentations in which you can be effective, and to deepen levels of personal, professional and spiritual integration in yourself and your clients.
