ZH.) Introduction to Trager: The Art of Oscillatory Compression (Seattle October 20, 2019)


Product Description

Instructor: Joseph Rodin, LMT, Certified Trager Practitioner

What is Trager?
Trager is a unique, neuromuscular approach to bodywork and movement re-patterning. The tablework consists of deep, fluid rocking movements (oscillations) of muscles and joints combined with compression and gentle traction. This feeds into the nervous system resulting in dramatic muscular relaxation, along with feelings of lightness, freedom and flexibility. The client is also shown simple exercises called mentastics which helps integrate the profound changes in the body.

About This Class:
Although Trager is it's own bodywork modality, it can be used to greatly enhance other styles of massage. In this class you’ll:

  • Learn and practice Trager bodywork techniques and principles.
  • Learn how the potency of the Trager three-dimensional oscillations, combined with tissue compression, promotes profound tissue release, dissolves muscle memory, and improves the efficiency of the nervous system.

You’ll leave with immediately effective tools for your style of work and an appreciation for the profound contributions of the Trager approach!

This Introductory Workshop serves as a prerequisite for the Trager® Level 1 Training leading towards certification as a Trager Practitioner.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, pillow/bolster; wear loose clothing.
