Moving Medicine is an exuberant story of the inspired life of a major innovator on bodywork and health, Dr. Milton Trager: his journey from muscle-happy beach acrobat, boxer, dancer and local Miami celebrity, through the discovery of his healing gift, to his stature today as the internationally recognized genius of a major bodywork system based on “freedom and lightness” of body and mind. Along the way we learn of his successes in rehabilitating “hopeless” cases ( such as polio, MS, and osteoarthritis), his founding of an institute that has taught thousands who have brought benefit to many more thousands, and his discovery of a remarkably easy and straightforward approach to movement reeducation. In addition to telling his life story, Moving Medicine presents a detailed account of Dr. Trager’s work and serves as a complement to his own book, Movement as a Way to Agelessness (the new edition of Trager Mentastics, Station Hill). Milton Trager’s work will benefit anyone wishing to lead a healthier and more dynamic life.”-Deepak Chopra
