Trager® Tools for Somatic Movement and Massage Therapists
The Trager® Approach to Somatic Movement Therapy is pleasurable, gentle, nurturing and non-invasive. Integrating its simple, profound principles into your work helps you address your clients’ specific concerns, whether to bring more joy into life, enhance athletic performance, or address the functional limitations of pain, medical conditions, aging, disease, or injuries. And perhaps even more importantly, investing in Trager as your primary modality leads to a long and joyful practice and an ageless freedom in your own body. Read more about the work at TragerUS.org.
These two Master Classes give you the opportunity to delve deeply into the nature of your relationship with yourself as you work, and to discover how your work takes on new simplicity and precision as you change the focus of your attention and the quality of your intention.
This workshop is focused on softness as an effective attitude, quality of contact and essence of meaning in hands-on therapies. Through discussions as well as your own in-class experiences, you’ll discover the deep impact of a softly inquiring mind, the potency of soft touch, the meaning as skin meets skin and mind meets body, the soft and even feel of healthy tissue, and how elegant ease arises organically up from soft feet. Can we learn to live more generously in the soft animal of our body? Can we learn to love what it loves?
