Introduction to Trager - The Art of Dissolving Tension Patterns

The Trager approach is different. Not only does it release the tension, but through its specific, rhythmic, gentle movements and oscillations of the muscles it "resets" the nervous system, unhooking it from the dysfunctional movement patterning and facilitating natural movement once again. From this state, the body and mind "learned" or "become acquainted with" a natural movement vocabulary from which they can build to achieve freedom from pain and tension. Trager movements called, Mentastics, are taught to the patient after the session to consolidate and improve upon the changes.

Trager stands alone as an approach, but also beautifully compliments and deepens other style s of massage as well. Come and learn the language of the neuromuscular system and turn temporary release of tension into ongoing dissolution of muscular tension patterns.
