Trager® Intro Workshop for Massage Therapists


Event Details


Massage Therapists… How could your work with clients be easier and more playful?

Come learn the relaxing, rhythmic movements of the Trager® Approach that invite both you and your client to go deeper into relaxation during the session.

Trager is an experiential approach to movement education and mind/body integration. It uses both table work and self-directed movement explorations to influence the unconscious mind. Using the natural rhythms of the body’s weight and structure, a Trager therapist can help the client rediscover ease, freedom from restriction and fluidity of function.

During the table work portion of a Trager session, each part of the body gets gently rocked like a baby. These movements stay within what feels safe and pleasant for the client, enabling the mind to let go of habitual muscle holding patterns, resulting in long-lasting change. When you give a session, you are also receiving the rocking movements yourself! Body mechanics for the practitioner are an integral and valuable part of this class – you will learn to work with greater ease and alignment.

During this workshop you will:

  • learn the principles of the Trager® Approach
  • explore hands-on Trager table work, supine and prone, using body mechanics that create the greatest ease for the practitioner; special emphasis will be given to releasing the Psoas
  • discover Trager Mentastics® – gentle playful movements which increase body awareness, and explore comfortable movement. You will feel more relaxed and comfortable in your own body as the workshop progresses!
  • laugh & have fun!
