 Trager for Daily life- virtual group facebook chat 

In Canada, more than 20% of adults suffer from chronic pain and have been suffering for 10 or more years. The cost of pain management appears to have skyrocketed with chronic pain sufferers paying out almost 17000$ Canadian a year, from their own pockets. On top of this high cost it is estimated that 75% of those suffering from chronic pain need more pain management option, but do not attempt them, because they simply cannot afford to try anything new. There is a little know method called “Mentastics”, a division of the Massage technique “Trager MD Psychophysical Integration method. It was developed by the creator, Dr. Milton Trager for those unable to afford or have access to a certified massage Trager MD therapist. Some of the health benefits are that it can as induce a state of relaxation and even improve muscular mobility.
