TRAGER LEVEL 2
A unique, neuromuscular approach to body and movement re-patterning.
This stand alone CE course also serves as the second step towards Certification in the Trager® Approach. You’ll deepen your experience of both Table-work and Movement Mentastics through demonstrations and supervised practice. Trager® is a valuable approach for anyone who wants to elevate awareness in themselves and their clients.
WHAT IS TRAGER
Trager® 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 movements called Mentastics which helps integrate the profound changes in the body.
