Do you walk around with tension and/or chronic pain in your necks, backs, hips or elsewhere? 

Sometimes, we’re in such chronic pain that we don’t even notice it anymore! The intensity of modern lifestyle tends to promote tension in the body and stress in the mind. We can’t change the whole world around us, but we can support our own wellbeing with simple self-care practices.

Massage doesn’t have to involve getting naked on a table and paying another person to “fix you”. There are many easy massage protocols that you can do on your own feet, hands, arms, legs, neck – and even parts of your own back!

Join Leigh-Ann Renz to learn how to incorporate easy self-massage techniques to soothe your body (and mind!) Saturday, September 29th, 2 – 3:30 PM.

Space is limited: to save yours, use the form below or register on our class calendar.
