Advice & Tips: This is for Trager - I have two different types of massage that I use presently - Cranial Sacral and Trager. Both have made a great difference in my day to day living significant enough to keep me consistently on schedule with sessions. The use of massage to control pain levels is critical since I choose to try to avoid narcotic pain medication if I can. I am limited by the Worker's Comp. Adjustor to the number of sessions I may have per week, but it is also dependent upon my pain level for me to be functioning enough to manage keeping up with appointments for all treatments. I am not always able to handle as many in one week as another.

Advice & Tips: I am a massage therapist. I find these very important for treating stress, mood, panic, anxiety, and PTSD. Most of us suffer from some sort or head aches or muscle tension in our neck and shoulder area....all brought on by triggers and stressors. They are expensive but well worth it. Some massages are covered by insurance if you go through a health care provider or chiropractor that has one on staff. I do not pay for mine because I work in the field. The price I am listing is the average mean for this particular massage.
Cost: $200+ monthly
