I have studied Dr. Milton Trager's techniques of bodywork and prescribe them
frequently for my patients (medical and psychotherapeutic) and corporate clients. They are of great value in treating a large variety of ills, and have the added benefit of creating a high level of wellness and a sense of well being.
I am most enthusiastic about Mentastics. There is such a naturalness about the whole experience, a rhythm that reminds me of dancing. I am always left with a feeling of lightness and freedom of movement.
The advantage of Trager is that the athlete can stay more limber and loose, and thus freer of muscle damage.
Trager work is one of the least invasive forms of body work using gentle rocking and bouncing motions to induce states of deep, pleasant relaxation. It helps facilitate the nervous system's communication with the muscles, so that it can be used as a method of rehabilitation especially by people suffering from traumatic injuries, post-polio syndrome, and other chronic neuromuscular problems.
Trager work is an invaluable aid for all singers. It relaxes the throat muscles and positions the larynx for extended range and better breath support. I rely on it.
As a dance/movement therapist and Trager client I have found this gentle hands on technique creates a sense of openness and centeredness enabling one to explore and revitalize the connection between body mind and spirit.
Milton Trager's work will benefit anyone wishing to lead a healthier and more
