Myofascial Release: Full Body Massage with Leah Barnett in Queen Anne
March 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $40
We all have individual “maps” in our bodies detailing where we’ve been and where we are now. Depending on our daily habits, working life, physical activity, trauma/s, and much more, we all have unique “issues in our tissues.” This workshop offers you a guide into your own personal body-map. Using therapy balls you will begin at the temples and work your way to the toes, giving attention to ALL THE THINGS. You’ll learn rolling/deep massaging techniques to break up tightness, adhesions, and other potential stress-holding patterns in your body. These are powerful tools to gain better proprioception (SPECIFIC awareness of what is happening in the body) and therefore a greater ability to function more prosperously.
Here are a some things having a regular therapy ball practice promotes: less pain, better sleep, better mood, less injury, faster recovery, enhanced physical function, more mind body connection, better breathing, less stress, less toxins, more flexibility, increased immunity, and better circulation.
All therapy balls provided for use during the workshop. Most of the duration of this practice is done on the ground, on a yoga mat. Dress in clothing that fits close to the body- otherwise the balls can get stuck inside of a very loose shirt or pants! Come ready to treat yourself to a massage that you give yourself! Expect to leave feeling more relaxed, calm and at ease in your body.
