eGuide > Trager

The Trager® approach was developed by Milton Trager, MD, over a period of 50 years and is taught worldwide. The bodywork is experienced as gentle rhythmic movements of the limbs and a soothing rocking of the torso which loosens all of the joints and muscles. It is non-invasive, gentle and deep. The process re-educates the mind, releasing traumas and stresses that are limiting – physically, mentally and emotionally.

The Trager Practitioner

The Trager practitioner adopts a relaxed and open meditative state of consciousness. The hands are used to communicate a quality of feeling to the nervous system by gently rocking, weighing, stretching and pressing.

The Client’s Experience

A full session lasts 60-90 minutes. The client rests on a well-padded table in a warm comfortable environment. As the client experiences the exploration of gentle movements, he/she is provided with a sense of being able to move freely and painlessly.


Expect Trager to:

  • Revitalize energy
  • Create the experience of flexibility, lightness and ease of movement
  • Release unconscious holding patterns
  • Recognize and ease stress in the body
  • Contribute to mental growth and awareness


The positive effects of Trager are cumulative, penetrating below the level of conscious awareness, and can continue to produce results after a session.
