Biased references?[edit]

There's interesting content in the article, but it seems that all of the references are from official Trager sources (and one or two books on the method). Are there any peer-reviewed scientific papers by researchers with no connections to the Trager Institute/Association/etc?

Indeed. This seems to be just the kind of page to have a section "Criticism". Without it, I'd approach it with lots of caution. Hexmaster (talk) 11:51, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
This is a fairly established form of bodywork (though I think it was more popular decades ago than now), so I'm certain there are secondary sources - especially books that review and summarize a dozen or so modalities - that discuss it. I will add a couple of sources give the article have a bit more grounding. I'm not sure that anyone currently cares enough about it to write much "criticism" in the sources, but it would be appropriate to state that it (probably) doesn't have any science specifically supporting it (once someone has checked the various channels to ensure that's true). --Karinpower (talk) 22:36, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
