Dr. Milton Trager recognized well before contemporary knowledge on neuroplasticity that new information introduced to 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, vectored elongations and compressions within a variety of body movements received in a calming, pleasurable atmosphere. Beyond reducing tension, the rhythmic, oscillations ‘reset,’ the nervous system, unhooking it from the dysfunctional movement patterning, and facilitating natural movement once again.
Cumulative in nature, this work promotes ease, physical mobility, and a renewed lasting awareness of agelessness for the client. The therapist benefits from the fluid, meditative approach, rekindling the joy of bodywork done creatively and with an ease that promotes joy and professional longevity.
Reasons for Trager® Certification: Level 1 is also the first step of the Certification Program, designed for students to develop Trager® Approach as a primary modality. It offers highly focused, in-depth training with the exploration, supervision, and feedback necessary for students to establish a successful Trager® practice. Beyond gaining mastery, certification bestows a tangible credential and, with permission, the US Trager® Association will list practitioners on its website.
