Trager Approach

The Trager Approach is a form of mind and body work developed by Dr Milton Trager.

Also called psychophysical integration, the Trager Approach is designed to help people regain physical, mental and emotional harmony.  It helps improve your posture, breathing, balance and ability to relax.

During your Trager session, you will experience a mix of:

Trager leg treatmentPassive time where you just relax: While you lie on a softly padded couch, (as with massage but fully clothed if you wish), you will be  softly stroked, stretched and rocked.  What is different from other forms of massage and body work, is that afterwards, you will be asked to experience and notice the changes in your body and mind.  This will help you develop the skill to recall the feeling of relaxation whenever you need it.

Active, conscious movements;  where you are guided through simple movements called Mentastics to help you release any tension you have. These mindful movements can help re-educate your muscles and reflexes. This can improve balance and allow you  to move more freely. You will also experience relaxation and freedom like never before.

Everyone can benefit from the Trager Approach.

The experience is about self-discovery, finding ways to do more with less effort and therefore regain energy.  As with any learning process, the effects are cumulative, therefore a series of sessions is recommended to develop mindfulness in every day life.

Trager sessions increase flexibility, range and ease of movement so they are particularly helpful to improve performance of musicians, athletes, dancers and for people with chronic problems such as asthma, MS and arthritis. Because they also connect to the mind they are very helpful for people who have experienced trauma and experience a disconect between mind and body and are looking for somatic work to help them reconnect with themselves.
