MOVING IN MINDFULNESS – The Trager Approach for Massage and Bodyworkers – Seattle
November 20 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Trager’s® rhythmic, interweaving waves of soft tissue and joint compression and traction result in profound levels of integration.
Improvisational and fluid, Trager® releases chronic pain patterning while unfolding deepening levels of somatic integration.
Dissolve patterns shaped through protection, injury, and trauma. Restore greater ease and a more pain free life for client and practitioner alike.
What is Trager®? Trager is a unique, neuromuscular approach to bodywork and movement re-patterning. 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. The client is also shown simple exercises called mentastics which help integrate the profound changes in the body.
Sessions include individualized, mindful, somatic movement practices called Mentastics®. These support on-going well being, enhance the benefits of Trager Sessions and teach clients how to integrate the principles into their daily life.
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 as an approach, but also beautifully complements and deepens other styles of massage as well. 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 serves as a prerequisite for the Trager® Level 1 Training leading towards certification as a Trager Practitioner.
Along with gaining mastery and deepening personal growth, Trager® certification bestows a tangible credential in Neuromuscular Therapy and Movement Education and, with permission, the US Trager® Association will list practitioners on its website.
