Movement Education, Mind/Body Integration

A Lighter Way of Being

Imagine a child... carefree... expressing himself with natural, easy, and fluid movements... his body a source of joy, pleasure and vitality. This feeling is your birthright. You can recover this feeling in Trager sessions, and learn to restore it to your everyday awareness.

The Movement Sends the Message

The Trager Approach is a way of learning through movement and touch. In sessions, you receive repeated lessons in what it feels like to move with more and more ease and freedom. Your head, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, back and torso are supported, gently moved, elongated, jiggled and rocked in your body's natural rhythms. As your mind and body yield to these soft, wave-like movements, tensions disappear and new movement patterns become possible.

An Approach for Every Body

The Trager Approach is pleasurable, gentle and nurturing. It's wide appeal comes from the deep and long-lasting effects. Some people receive sessions for relaxation, for enjoyment, for personal growth, or to enhance athletic performance; Others because they are challenged by the functional limitations of pain, medical conditions, aging, disease, or injuries. Inquire about the benefits of a Trager session for your specific concerns.

An Investment in Your Well-Being

Benefits of a Trager session are cumulative, with subsequent sessions allowing for deeper and more long-lasting change. But even after one session clients say:
I feel deeply relaxed and energized at the same time.
I feel less pain and have more flexibility.
I feel more connected to my body, my emotions, and my soul.
I feel like I have come home to myself.
