Resistance and Release Work for Neck & Shoulder with Trager Fundamentals with Deane Juhan

June 29 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm

$395

TRAGER PRINCIPLES WITH RESISTANCE AND RELEASE WORK

A Dynamic Addition to Your Massage Skills

Relaxation and stress relief are certainly two main goals of bodywork.  But there is an important addition to your clients’ somatic well-being that more directly addresses the patterns of muscular habituation, posture, compensations due to injury and the restoring of freedom of movement and freedom from pain, and that is the active re-education of the overall sensory motor patterns that have accumulated over time.

The work that will be presented in this workshop is an innovative approach developed by Deane Juhan, based in large measure upon the rehabilitative techniques of Dr. Milton Trager.

Functionally, we are really one muscle that is divided up by the connective tissue structures into different compartments in order to provide specific vectors of motion and coordinated groups of motor units.  We are not robots with hinges, cables and pulleys, but shape-changers, and any gesture involves the participation of wide-spread muscular synergies.

Resistance/Release work is an interactive approach between therapist and client designed to re-coordinate their musculature as a whole and to train more efficient and effective recruitment of muscular contraction and lengthening involved in any position or movement, from feet to head and from sleeve to core.  The result is dramatically improved muscular coordination, adding both ease and strength to all of our activities.
