About The Event
If you ask most people where they store stress and tension, they will tell you the neck and shoulders. While this is true, they are unaware that their feet, legs, and pelvis are also chronically tense. Myofascial constrictions in the lower body are just as enervating as they are elsewhere in the body and they distort the way people stand, walk, and move. This workshop will build on and expand the knowledge you gained in the Myofascial Release Massage, Upper Body course. It also integrates what you learned in the Upper Body course so that you will be able to offer your clients a complete head to toe Myofascial Release Massage. By the end of the class you will know the difference this work makes to the lower body alone, and the difference it can make to the entire body. You'll feel more relaxed, more grounded, more graceful, and probably taller. The course will include a hands-on review of all the strokes you learned in the Myofascial Release Massage – Part I: Upper Body.
(Please note: Bring a massage table, sheets, towel, oil, and clothing (bikini bottoms, swimsuit, or fitting shorts) that allows for the exposure of as much upper leg as possible.)
