Trager Therapy

Uses gentle rocking of the body and manipulation of the joints and muscles.  Dr. Milton Trager (1908-1997), the creator, established the Trager Institute in 1980. Overcoming his sickly childhood, he strengthened his body with gymnastics and dance.  He began his therapy work at 18 years of age and in 1955 when he became an M.D. in Mexico.  He claims this technique not only helps facilitates deep relaxation, increasing physical mobility and mental clarity, it also release deep seated physical and mental patterns.  Using gentle, non-intrusive, natural movements, it connects people with their energy.  Trager created Mentastics (mental gymnastics) to complement this therapy.
