Trager® The Gentle Approach to Muscle and Mental Mastery
All forms of body work are intended to help us maintain our balance, to nourish our spirits and to help our body perform at its best all the time. When you begin to look for methods of optimizing your body's physical and mental performance you'll find many choices. These choices range from the physically invasive to the gentle and cathartic.
For wholesome, total body renewal, growing numbers of people are turning to the Trager Approach developed over the last 50 years by Dr. Milton Trager and his colleagues. The Trager Approach has been called by some "the evolution of touch". It offers a unique therapeutic system of body work in which every touch, movement and suggestion is intended to remove muscle and mental tension and facilitate a deeper relaxation.
Trager's dynamically gentle and deeply penetrating compressions and elongations will melt tension and stress and untie even the deepest knots. These techniques are supplemented by use of a rhythmic rocking that sends waves of relaxation across your entire muscular and nervous systems and into your body's fluid structure where the lymphatic systems are positively affected.
It is easy to see how a physical and energetic therapy such as Trager benefits a wide range of conditions including stress, back and neck pain, muscle spasms, headaches, fibromyalgia, physical/emotional trauma and sports and other injuries. Trager's gentle techniques also allow mothers-to-be to enjoy Trager throughout the entire term of the pregnancy.
The benefits of Trager are cummulative and repeated sessions enable you to recall the pleasant sensations of your session and to re-experience them. This effect prolongs the benefits of Trager beyond the actual session.
No special equipment is needed for a Trager session. You lie on a padded table wearing light, loose-fitting clothing. Since oils and lotions aren't used, no messy cleanup is necessary following a session. You leave the table with a relaxed feeling that you're better able to cope with any mental, physical or spiritual challenges you may have.
Nourishing ourselves may be viewed as a luxury in our western work-based society. Break out of this mindset. Take time for yourself. Whether you have pain and discomfort or you would like to experience just how far into peaceful alignment you can go - schedule an appointment right away.
Simply put: You are worth it now! Caring for yourself allows you to have the best possible experience of this life, at this time, in this body.
