  Trager® Introductory Workshop
  May 9, 2015 (Saturday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm)
  7 CEUs = $145 ($165 after April 8) Taught by Judy Rose Seibert, certified Trager® practitioner for 18 years, Trager® core curriculum instructor and LMT www.tragerbyjudyrose.com
   
 

How could your work with clients be easier and more playful?  Come learn the relaxing, rhythmic movements of the Trager® Approach that invite both you and your client to go deeper into relaxation during the session. 

During this workshop you will:   * learn the principles of The Trager® Approach; *explore hands-on Trager® tablework, supine and prone, using body mechanics that create the greatest ease and comfort in movement, and help reduce or eliminate pain, fatigue and tension. 

Trager® is an experiential approach to movement education and mind/body integration. It uses both tablework and self-directed movement exploration to facilitate change in the unconscious mind.  Trager® uses the natural rhythms of the body's weight and structure to help rediscover ease, comfort, freedom from restriction, and fluidity of function.  With the experience of more pleasurable movement, the body/mind is transformed.

During the tablework portion of a Trager® session, each part of the body gets gently rocked like a baby.  These movement stay within what feels safe and pleasant for client, enabling the mind to let go of habitual muscle holding patters, resulting in long-lasting change.  The lovely part of Trager® is that when you give a session, you are also receiving the rocking movements yourself!  Body mechanics for the practitioner are a valuable part of this class; you will learn to work with greater ease and alignment.

Trager® Mentastics are guided by questions like "What could be easier?" "What could feel freer?" and "What could be more fluid?"  Mentastics help both the bodyworkers and their clients to move with greater ease and flexibility, and to retain the effects of Trager® tablework.  Often these movements are silly and fun and use imagery.  In our all too serious world, it is wonderful to have movement tools to help us "lighten up" and feel better. 


* Bring sheets & wear loose, comfortable clothing (preferably not jeans!)

This is Shamanic massage used by the ancient Kahunas to treat the mind, body and spirit and is based on their philosophy of life. “Lomi Lomi” means…to break up into small pieces.  This ancient technique is 1500 years old and aims at releasing all congestions in the body with a full-body massage.  It is known in Hawaii as the “Dance of Massage” because of  the use of the energy of the hips, legs and torso in a liquid flow of  continuous rhythm and beat ,accompanied by selected drum music.  You will learn how to transform a loving touch into techniques for healing.  The basis for Lomi Lomi is an integration of mind /body /soul. Both the therapist and client experience a  spiritual upliftment that is unequalled by Swedish massage.  Did you know that it is a precursor of Trager Therapy?

Self – Care techniques and breathing exercises. You will also learn Stretch techniques for upper and lower limbs.

Many techniques are designed to conserve your energy and prevent injury yourself.  You will learn breathing and meditation exercises for yourself.  Lomi Lomi is fully adaptable to a wide range of therapies, from athletic massage to Swedish massage.  Lomi Lomi can also be incorporated into many Oriental Modalities.

  18 CEUs = $270 ($295 after September 2)  Taught by Wolfgang Luckman, www.wolfgangluckmann.com
   
  Chinese Craniosacral Therapy is a NON-CONFRONTATIONAL, SAFE AND INDIRECT APPROACH to the body's physical and psychological imbalances.  We use a subtle blend of Chinese Acupressure meridian therapy and psychophysicologic craniosacral therapy.  Together we get a self-regulated and self-regulating system of energy medicine.  The body is guided and taught to harness its own bio-electric immune system or "Inner Intelligence". By working on the mind and para  and sympatheic nervous systems first, we turn inflammation and blockages around and lay the groundwork for further myofascial release as well.  In Chinese Craniosacral Therapy the body is a HOLOGRAPH!  We learn how to treat problems on the left or right side with the contralateral side first.  The issues on the top or bottom of the body with the opposite side.  Organ-related issues that are inflammatory with internal organ massage, because all chronic diseases in T.C.M. start in the Digestive system.  You will not simply be taught a protocol but how to treat specific dysfunctions!
