Lymphatic drainage and detoxification of skin and organ systems
Better mental alertness, focus and relaxation for the client

Tui-Na-Anma Chinese Medical Massage












Get an anatomical review of fascia, and it's role as connective tissue. Explore the web-like structure and gelatinous qualities of this myofascial structure and dig deep into getting "stuck" both physically and emotionally. Using the Fascia Blaster(tm) on clients and on ourselves, we'll learn how to release patterns of holding which keep muscles over shortened, over lengthened and atrophied. Using deep active myofascial stretches, we can reset these patterns on ourselves and learn a toolbox of myofascial stretches to show clients. 

Items needed for class: an item of significance to represent you in our centerpiece, a pen, yoga mat, massage table, sheets, oil, clothes comfortable for deep stretching of the hips, shoulders, legs, and spine.
