Why Parkinson’s Responds so Well to the Trager Approach

People living with Parkinson’s disease experience a decline in their ability to control their movements. But the Trager Approach has been able to give some of that control back to them. Trager sessions create a lighter, freer way to experience their body without the tension and struggle that often accompanies Parkinson’s.

“Balance and walking are much easier for me now because of Trager. I have learned that the relaxation element allows me to function,” says Constantine Cassolas, who lives with Parkinson’s. The self-help movements taught during a Trager session also help ease pain and improve balance.

Since Trager is a gentler alternative to traditional massage many people living with chronic pain can experience relief.
