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 is just as enervating as it is elsewhere in the body and it distorts 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 sheets, towel, oil, and clothing (bikini bottoms, swimsuit, or loose fitting shorts) that allows for the exposure of as much upper leg as possible.)
About the Manuals
As part of the seminar you will receive a 32 page, fully illustrated manual (sample page) that includes a summary of all the key points discussed in class.
A separate manual was created for each of the three courses. The manuals are written as a guide to perform each stroke taught in class.
The manuals are especially useful for three reasons. First, each stroke is illustrated with two kinds of pictures; a profile picture showing the relationship of the practitioner's body to the client's body as the stroke is being performed and two, a picture of what the stroke should look like from the practitioner's own eyes.
Second, the description of each stroke is easy to follow because it is divided into the following sections; the tool (body part) the practitioner uses, where the practitioner stands in relationship to the client, the client's position, the direction of the stroke, a description of the stroke, any client movement, and tips which will make the stroke more effective.
Lastly, most of the conceptual material discussed in class is also written about in the manuals so that students do not have to take extensive notes in the class and still have the material available for study outside the classroom.
