TRAGER® LEVEL 1 Joseph Rodin with TBD

October 23 - October 29

$200.00 – $1,245.00

This Trager 1 course takes place October 23-25th and 27-29th in Lewiston, Idaho. Trager work has become known as a highly effective neuromuscular approach to bodywork and somatic movement therapy with applications in rehabilitation, movement re-patterning, trauma informed care, and psychophysical integration.

Trager Level 1 is a stand alone course as well as the first step of Trager Certification, designed for students to experience a deeper level of therapeutic effectiveness and integration.

Course description and objectives:
This course is designed for students in the fields of massage therapy, physical therapy, body-centered psychotherapy, fitness training, yoga, and other somatic practices. This first step in Professional Certification in the Trager Approach can be taken as a stand alone course. Both Mentastics (mindful movement) & Table-work are taught through demonstrations and supervised practice, and you’ll come away with a an full body protocol to integrate into your current bodywork practice and a foundation for  subsequent certification to offer the Trager Approach as a primary modality in your practice.

The class will teach effective applications for pain and injury, as well as relief from symptoms of sustained social, emotional and psychological stress. It will also highlight ways of working with manual therapy and body sensation to address the effects of internalized trauma, both recent and long past. Trager is a valuable approach for anyone who wants to elevate awareness in themselves and their clients. 

About Trager 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.

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, achieving high levels of success with effects of Parkinson’s, MS, Post Polio Syndrome, Back Pain, Migraines, and Chronic Pain, while helping patients reconnect to their inherent sense of ageless ease and joy of movement.

It is highly recommended to have taken an Introduction to Trager Approach class, live or online, and receive one or more Trager sessions prior to class to get the most from the training. 

Instructor: Joseph Rodin is a Trager Practitioner and Tutor, and a practicing bodyworker and psychotherapist in Seattle, WA. He teaches continuing education courses throughout the Northwest and beyond. Into his courses he weaves this background together with a love for Percussion and Afro Brazilian Dance.
