Reflex Response 1"You can be so soft and light. You really have to be this to be effective. Develop a consciousness that is so fidgety! We bombard the mind with stimuli. Until the mind is stimulated, nothing has happened." Dr. Milton Trager
In this class we learn to bring awareness to a specific area, emphasise a feeling or facilitate balance between antagonistic muscle groups. Tense areas can be released. In the case of paralysis, this work is effective in triggering a sense of activity, that is, simulating a feeling of what it would be like if the person had active movement in that particular area. This work requires specific touch including quality and quantity, sensitivity, timing as well as precise verbal cues. This prepares the source of information and input to evoke a feeling experience that needs to be imprinted in the client's subconscious. This usually involves movement, strength and/or balance.
