The Trager Approach, each 1-hour session more relaxing than a massage

I’ve been receiving ‘Trager’ for a few months now, and am so impressed that I want to share it with you.

Glennda charges $65/hour.  I find her to be a quiet, gentle person with whom I would imagine anyone would feel as ‘safe’ and comfortable with as I do.  To contact her, Glennda’s email address is
