About The Event

Whether you are a Massage Therapist, Rolfer, Physical or Occupational Therapist, Chiropractor, Nurse or Yoga Instructor, learning The Trager Approach and Mentastics will enhance your treatment efficacy and minimize burnout and repetitive strain injuries. If you are a human being this class will enhance your life!

Since it's inception, Dr. Milton Trager's work in psycho-physical integration, has incorporated components of Mindfulness, Trauma-informed practices, Non-Violent Communication, a deep understanding of Neuroplasticity, Epigenetics, Heart-Brain Coherence and even quantum physic's Observer Effect outcomes. Recent findings in  modern science highlight how his work has always intersected these emergent concepts in mind-body integration and explain why there is such lasting neuro-muscular change as a result of it. Explore the essential principles of Dr. Milton Trager's Psychophysical Integration and their applications to some of the most common clinical, musculoskeletal pathologies. Through this unique self-care approach founded on a mindful presence and specific body mechanics, you'll learn to transform touch into a language to dialogue with the nervous system to facilitate lasting neuro-muscular change. And you'll feel great doing it! The system of dynamic mindful movement, Dr. Trager termed Mentastics forms the basis for your self-care at the table, the foundation of the hands-on table work and informs the very exercises you can teach to your clients to elicit similar muscular responses on their own. This course reviews this and is a stand alone course or the first step towards professional certification and self-transformation.

The Level 1 training consists of six days of comprehensive, experiential training involving detailed explanation, demonstration, and practice of TRAGER Movement Education and Mind/Body Integration, including gaining a working feeling and understanding of the scientiDic basis of the mediative state Dr. Trager referred to as "Hook-up"  which elevates touch to the stature of a language.

Weekend 1 of the training will introduce you to TRAGER essential principles, and the projection of feeling-qualities to the unconscious mind, as opposed to mastering "technique"  to manipulate tissue. 

Weekend 2 of the training will focus deeply on exploration of movement in the body and how to use specific handles in order to create and communicate more ease of movement in the body. Throughout all of this, we will continue to deepen in our understanding of using the process in inquiry, which is at the core of Trager Approach's efficacy. 

Students bring to class set of sheets, note taking materials and wear comfortable clothing. Massage tables will be provided by the school.
