AFI – Key to Excellence and Sustainability

An Exploration of Basic Core Principles of
The TRAGER® Approach to Psychophysical Integration
~ A Playful and Effortless Way of Working and Feeling Better ~

In this class we explore the power of Awareness, Focus, and Intention, basic core principles of The TRAGER Approach. We learn about a safe and effortless approach to self-care and the healing potential of mindful touch.

 This class offers an insight into how and why the TRAGER Approach works. From here you are able to make an informed decision whether this modality is for you to pursue further. There is no obligation to enter the TRAGER professional training after this class; what you learn here is yours to use and apply in your life and practice. However, only certified TRAGER practitioners who are active members in good standing with the USTA are legally permitted to use the trademarked TRAGER logo, and the terms “TRAGER®”, and “Mentastics®” to advertise and describe their work.

No prerequisites are necessary for this class; you don't have to be a massage therapist to participate in this class.
