A Gentler Way of Letting the Tension Go:
The Trager approach is a dialogue between the mind and hands
of the practitioner and the mind and body of the client. This dialogue encourages
a new freedom of movement and a shedding of held tension. Through a series of
wave like movements that include lengthening, compressing, swinging and gentle
rocking, the practitioner invites the client to experience their body moving
more effortlessly and freely. This feeling is then deepened through the teaching
of Mentastics, self-care movements that can evoke the feelings of lightness,
freedom and flexibility that were present during the table work. This encourages
and supports this new way of moving in the body so that the client is not simply
going back to their old movement patterns.
Trager in the Workplace: Trager is well suited for the workplace, because no
oils are used and clients can be fully clothed during the session. Clients are
relaxed and refreshed, leaving them with more energy to return to work. Session
times can be anywhere between 20 to 60 minutes in length. A minimum of three
consecutive hours is needed for a booking.
