Milton Trager, MD, spent most of his life exploring the effects of soft and gentle movement on the nervous system, which he linked to the unconscious mind. His discovery became known as Trager or The Trager Approach. He began working with children with muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis, and his final work was specifically with Parkinson’s disease. He felt this work was particularly helpful with any central nervous system disorders.
Movement is a part of each session and it is designed with a question, “how it could be?”, “what could be lighter?” and because it is contagious, “you catch it like the measles” as Milton said. My own daily practice leaves me feeling lighter and freer, as does every session I give! I entitled a series of workshops at the All Life Center “Moving Medicine” because, self-healing IS possible through movement.
Tablework is also movement oriented in the form of rocking, elongating, sculpting and passive range explorations that allow the body to playfully change unconscious holding patterns. The feeling of freedom is explored immediately after the session and playful Mentastics are given to do in between sessions. The body is often calling our attention, but do we listen? And if we listen, do we respond in gentle, effective and loving ways? This is the brilliance of Trager.
A wide variety of clients benefit from this approach, many of my clients have been told there was nothing else that could be done, when after a few sessions, pain is relieved, and new life has returned. Everyone is taught a way to play with gravity, to become lighter and more active in your life. This creates a feeling of youthfulness at any age. Through rocking, elongating and softly coaxing movement in every joint, you can recall feelings of playfulness and freedom perhaps not felt since childhood. Experiencing these feelings at a tissue level, rather than intellectually, is powerful and transformational. From this deeply relaxed place, structural alignment occurs, the body works in harmony letting go of compensation patterns and realizes its full potential once again.
