Trager Therapy

Trager is a highly developed form of integrative touch and movement that begins with this remarkable idea: It is possible to teach anyone to experience themselves as healthy and whole.

Course content

The genius of Dr. Milton Trager was his understanding that nothing long-lasting happens until the patient feels the changes in his tissues and is taught to return to that feeling state through practice.

As the Trager therapist we, learn to read the clients habitual movement patterns and to teach them how to shift to a more comfortable way of being and a more efficient way to move through their lives. We learn to do this with a remarkable honesty and gentle touch that can recall for the client the memory of a child being cradled and rocked by a parent.

Through lecture, demonstration and practice, we will learn:
  • Mentastics® Self Care Movement exercises to keep us comfortable as the therapist as we work. We will teach these to our clients so that they may elicit similar changes on their own
  • How inquiry and a meditative presence transform touch into a language that reaches the clients unconscious
  • In these two days we learn some basic manipulations

Course aims

  • are able to use the Trager principles without effort and without feeling the tension of repetitive movements
