Want to feel good again? Feel what it’s like to be freer, lighter, easier..
Are you feeling defragmented? Dealing with nagging aches and pains, or issues such as fibromyalgia, chronic headaches, sleep disorders, hypertension or just want to feel your best? One client recently said, “Trager isn’t like other forms of bodywork, the Trager session stays with me!”
Come hear Betsy Oldenburg, NCBMBT#330 – a Trager Practitioner and tutor for over 30 years. She will explain how and why the Trager Approach® works and give short demonstrations to willing attendees. The hands-on aspect of Trager uses movement and sensation to release subconscious tension habits by teaching the body and mind what it is to feel freer, easier, lighter. The practitioner listens to the body’s holding patterns and uses gentle rocking, stretching and compressions to communicate a new way of being to the muscles, nerves, and brain.
Anyone will benefit from a Trager session, but some conditions most helped by Trager are: Fibromyalgia, Neck and shoulder pain, Headaches, Low back pain, Chronic tension, Arthritis, Anxiety, Neuromuscular disorders, Parkinson’s symptoms, and more. Go to www.Trager.com for more information. Or call Betsy at 336-288-3145.
Betsy Oldenburg will be offering her new book: A Fresh Take on Ergonomics, avoiding Pain in the Workplace, iUniverse Publishing, 2015.
Learn to manage neck, back and shoulder pain
“A Fresh Take on Ergonomics” (published by iUniverse) written by Betsy Oldenburg, is an innovative guide to managing neck, back and shoulder pain with simple modifications of posture, seating and balance. Her unique experience as a Trager Movement Education Practitioner and Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist for 30 years has given her significant insights into how to eliminate, or manage the aches and pains that plague many adults in a myriad of professions. This approach differs radically from traditional ergonomic thought and theory. She places more importance on body alignment than on typical office furniture. A few of her helpful hints were inspired by other sources, but her approach is proven and uniquely her own.
“I want to emphasize that my suggestions for stretches and other movement practices here are in no way comprehensive,” Oldenburg says. “My main focus is for you to understand the importance of getting your body out of collapse whenever and wherever possible, and to share easy ways to find balance.”
