TRAGER® MENTASTICS® : LIGHTNESS & FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT***
The second aspect of the Trager Approach, called Mentastics, involves instruction in the use of self-care movements taught in individual sessions or classes.
Dr. Trager developed Mentastics®–a form of movement re-education–to encourage playful exploration of “what could be freer” for your body. Integrating Mentastics® into your daily life will allow you to enhance and recall feelings of ease, freedom, flexibility and joy. Mentastics® can become part of the way you take care of yourself and relieve stress and tension.
The Trager® Approach was developed by Milton Trager, MD. As a wrestler at the age of 18, he discovered the principles of his future work. He spent the rest of his life deepening that work eventually becoming a medical doctor. At retirement age he began teaching his work. Trager® incorporates gentle rocking, stretching and shaking movements that facilitate a deep neurological relaxation response, loosening the muscles and joints.
