Celebrate National Trager Month!

Milton Trager, M.D., born April 20, 1908, established the Trager® Approach. The Trager Approach uses gentle and natural movements to ease tension, stiffness and pain in muscles, joints and tendons. The approach “re-educates” the mind and body to work together to establish new and more fluid patterns of motion.

Dr. Trager, who died in 1997, found that interrupting someone’s movement patterns with natural, gentle movements to ease tension and stiffness could be life-changing. His approach uses hands-on experiential sessions with a Trager® practitioner as well as self-care movements that help clients move more efficiently.
