Fascial Approaches: The Shoulder
November 24 @ 9:00 am - November 25 @ 5:00 pm$400.00
The shoulder joint, is the most flexible joint in the body. It is surrounded and influenced by over a dozen muscles which allow it the greatest ranges of motion possible of any joint of the body. When the integrity of this joint is affected by trauma, most of these muscles and their associated fascia will respond by creating excessive tensile forces to protect this area from any further harm. Upper trapezius and levator scapula muscles when they are stressed by physical, mental and emotional trauma as well as posture can take on a seemingly solidified texture.
Join us in exploring how to assess and treat this area using fascial techniques and exercises to bring about release to the muscles and fascia of the shoulder region.
