Located in Bend, Oregon, Barrie Robbins, LMT offers gentle, supportive movement-based integrative health approaches to promote physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Trager® psychophysical integration is a movement therapy to improve your quality of life. Gentle, rocking, swinging, wave-like movements flow through the body, uncovering physical, emotional, and mental flexibility. Through table work and self-care exercises, you can rediscover your natural ability to move freer, use less effort, and feel more comfort. Relaxation has become a lost art, many of us unaware of our holding and tension habits that can manifest as pain, stress, stiffness, or even illness. The Trager Approach invites a deepening self-awareness, freeing the breath, unlocking chronic tension patterns, releasing held stress, and calming the mind. Here's Dr. Andrew Weil writing about the Trager Approach.

4. reduced mobility from injury or illness
5. improving postural alignment and flexibility
