  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Other)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
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.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
