We have had many testimonials from clients over the years.
“(Trager) It was amazing, a huge physical release, and emotional, and mental. It is a profoundly deeply emotional thing.”
“So there it was, I’d found it. The reason for this spiritual journey. A cathartic experience which freed me from memories I’d been living with for years. … a fabulous experience.”
– Jerry Hall, speaking about her experience of The Trager Approach, BBC documentary Jerry Hall’s Gurus.
“Milton Trager’s work will benefit anyone wishing to lead a healthier and more dynamic life.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I have a severe curvature in my lumbar region and, as well as distorting my posture, it causes a lot of backache and misalignment of the pelvis. The treatment, I found, made great improvements on my posture and subsequently relieved any backache I had been experiencing. Due to the nature of the other problems I have, it has been required for me to have an ongoing maintenance programme. This has been a godsend for me and has relieved me of so much pain I would otherwise have been experiencing. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who has postural problems, pain or various other conditions.”
“Getting off the table after a Trager session, I felt some 20 years younger in my body. Coupled with this came a sheer delight in how my body chose to move, to express itself, effortlessly and with delight. It has given me a renewed sense of awe for how lovely having a body is. This only lends to wanting to look after it the best I can – and that insight is the best one could ever wish for.”
“As a dance professional my body is under constant physical stress. I find TRAGER to be beneficial in assisting me to re-balance my often depleted energies. After a treatment from Adrian I find that I am centered and revitalised.”
“After a few sessions, the stiffness in my neck and arms had completely freed up and I can now stretch as high as I like, completely pain-free. It may not sound much compared with some health conditions, but to me it is a mini-miracle”
“I first had some private sessions with Julie, which massively helped my back and hip, and made life a more pleasant and relaxing place to be in, reducing the amount of codeine I needed.
I then attended a Mentastics day (with Dante Marchini) which encouraged us in the ability to think nicely and kindly about our bodies and joints and to marvel at them, whilst so gently moving them, that it was a pleasure. After this my pain killers went down about 60 percent more. This was a revelation after needing them so long – liberating!
I have continued with private tablework sessions and now after the year I am almost pain-killer free, and certainly it is a few now and again, over a month. I can move without fear of pain. Previously I couldn’t walk more than 100 yards without pain. I have recently come back from walking up and down hills for a couple of hours a day on holiday. Walking gives me so much pleasure now and I don’t dread it. I can now walk the dog and enjoy the outdoors.
Trager has literally been a life saver. I cannot over-state this. It should be available on the NHS. After 10 years of severe, debilitating pain, several operations of mixed value, and on huge amounts of pain relief, I heard of Trager. I am, one year later, off pain killers.”
“Each session is like a transmission of deep peace and relaxation, a reminder of what it feels like to be free of bodily tensions and blockages of energy. After a session I can sense my body more as pure fluid energy. I feel lighter, more spacious and present.”
“Trager for me offered something more profound than any other bodywork treatment I have experienced in a long time. A paradox to say that although deeply relaxing, I felt highly energised and acutely aware of many different sensations in my body… a smoothing out of tension and blocked / imbalanced energies which I have been aware of accumulating in my mind and body for a while.”
