The Trager® Approach is pleasurable and gentle, yet the effects are deep and lasting. In a Trager session, your body is supported and gently moved within its pain-free range and natural rhythm.
Every movement and every touch that you experience while lying on a Trager table communicates how free your body could be. It calms the nervous system, the muscles relax, and the body is able to let go into the play of the movements. As your body and mind yield to these soft movements, tensions disappear and new movement patterns become possible, the natural, free flowing movements we all used to know as children.
As you receive your Trager session, you may choose to be partially or fully clothed.

The lightness, expansion and liveliness that you feel at the end of your session can be recalled at any time, using simple movements called Mentastics.
In your session you will be helped to discover the Mentastics which suit your individual needs. Integrating Mentastics in your daily life will allow you to enhance, remind and recall these feelings of ease, freedom, flexibility and joy.
Benefits of a Trager session are cumulative, with subsequent sessions allowing for deeper and longer lasting change.
The Trager Approach is a way of learning through movement and touch.
In a Trager session, you receive repeated lessons in what it feels like to move with more and more ease and freedom. Your head, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, back and torso are supported, gently moved, elongated, jiggled and rocked in your body's natural rhythms.
As your mind and body yield to these soft, wave-like movements, tensions disappear and new movement patterns become possible.
Passive and Active:
Passive movement – you are being moved so you experience your body with new freedom, lightness and ease, you re-discover your original state of freedom and relaxation.
Mentastics – an active movement exploration with emphasis on feeling, discovering how freely and comfortably we can move and live.
Many people seek a Trager session for relaxation, personal growth, or increased feelings of joy and wellness.

In stroke recovery, a fortunate few return to normal activity with some time and professional help. Most others encounter blocks or difficulties that slow or prevent full recovery. This article identifies some common blocks to recovery and discusses how Trager movement reeducation can help one work through, avoid or go around such blocks.
The Trager Approach is an educational process that uses gentle, rhythmic movement to help the functional mind learn. A post-stroke individual can usefully create self-movement or can be moved by another, like a Trager practitioner.
