Relax and Restore with Body Rolling Register View Cart



 


Relax and Restore with Body Rolling 


 Connective tissue (fascia) is a gel fluid and strong fibers that surround every muscle, joint, vessel, bone and organ 
to support, protect, store energy, provide strength, flexibility, and cushioning.   
Fascia can become dysfunctional (too weak or tight) from repetitive postures and movements, aging, injuries and surgeries. 
Dysfunctional fascia can cause poor posture, muscle imbalances, compensations, misaligned joints, stiffness, weakness, and pain.


However, connective tissue has the remarkable ability to be restored and maintained.  This class offers techniques (using balls and a soft roller) that trigger the relaxation response and improve connective tissue function at the same time.   
Appropriate for most fitness levels.

What people are saying about this class! 
" Whether I'm using a foam roller or ball, I now know how to work on a problem area using self-massage to get relief from tight or knotted muscles. I believe this class is responsible for this 71 year old having a healthy body, great golf game and keeping me happily employed full time."
