Lecture Topic: The Trager Approach: Hands
The Trager® Approach offers great ways of working effectively with hand related issues brought to us by clients. The work also offers excellent practices for developing new levels of sensitivity, skill, quality and comfort for our own hands, arms and shoulders. Drawn from decades in practice and teaching, we’ll share our understanding of kinetic physiology and the interdependent influences of mind and body in movement, as well as insight into the deep, long-lasting impact of potent softness. Touching your clients will never be the same.
Lecture Topic: The Trager Approach: Feet
The feeling and function of our feet has an effect on our entire body. The Trager® Approach offers effective and integrating ways of working with foot related issues brought by clients. Self-care Trager® practices also bring refreshed levels of sensitivity, support and comfort to our own feet, legs, pelvis, back and beyond. In this interactive workshop, we share our experience and understanding of how positive feeling fuels and restores natural function in a fun, pleasurable and educational process. Walk away with a spring in your step.
