This workshop is to help you become more familiar with your muscles, why muscles get “knots” in them, what those “knots” really are, and how those “knots” can interfere with proper muscle function. Most importantly, you learn what you can do to help alleviate the pain and dysfunction they cause.
This is also intended to help those that are already using tennis balls or lacrosse balls but want to know other ideas or positions they can use to better release the muscle. We will also go into the importance of continuing with a myofascial release routine for regular muscle maintenance for prevention of injury and re-injury.
If you own a tennis, lacrosse, or golf ball, it is recommended that you bring it to the class. This will be an educational and also hands-on lab workshop, so wear something comfortable. This workshop is intended for all ages and activity levels.
