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:
- passive time where you just relax
- active conscious movements
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. The difference it has with other forms of massage and body work, is that after you will be asked to experience and notice the changes in your body and mind. You will also be 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.
Sessions are more than just a treatment. 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.
