Myofascial Release and Stretching Workshop- April 2, 2017 12:00-2:30 pm

Join Joanie for an afternoon of relaxation, stretching and myofascial release.

She will lead you through a series of releases and stretches that you can use as part of your daily health and well routine.  You will leave feeling relaxed, refreshed,  more mobile, educated and empowered to heal.  We will cover all areas of the body including your feet, legs, arms, torso, neck, head and face.

Myofascial Stretching is a self-treatment technique that results in lengthening the body’s connective tissue.  It has the capacity to dramatically improve health and quality of life.  It can help relieve chronic pain, muscular tightness and postural dysfunction.

Fascia is tough connective tissue surrounding every cell from head to toe.  It creates an integrating mesh that envelops our bones, muscles and organs.  It forms our tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones.

Fascia can become restricted from thickening, shortening and tightening of connective tissue caused by injury, inflammation, poor posture, age etc… Restrictions can adhere to and put abnormal pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones and organs resulting in inefficient function of these structures.

Fascial Release and stretching frees up the restriction throughout the body by applying gentle sustained pressure into the fascial barrier or restriction then stretching.  As the barriers release greater flexibility is gain and structures regain normal function.

Investment:  $30.00 prior to March 26, 2017, $35.00 thereafter.

Enrollment includes 4″ vinyl massage ball.

Books available to purchase for $25.00 day of workshop- SPECIAL WORKSHOP PRICE
