“Our Inner Ocean, A World of Healing Modalities ” by LeCain W. Smith

Do you know what is the Trager Approach?

Also referred to as Psychophysical Integration, this form of therapy combines hands-on bodywork with a set of simple movement exercises, called Mentastics or mental gymnastics, to release muscle tension, increase range of motion, and reeducate the body.

It was developed by Dr. Milton Trager between the 1930s and 1950s as a means of releasing deep-seated areas of holding and pain or dysfunction interrelated with the neurological functioning of the mind and body. After using running and gymnastics to successfully correct his frail boyhood condition, he discovered that he had the ability to restore health with his hands, and while training to be a boxer, he found that he was able to heal a number of people, including a polio victim. After giving up boxing and getting involved in dancing and acrobatics, he pursued therapeutic training to support his own growing abilities.
