Class Description:
So many people have neck pain. It’s great to massage the muscles at the back of the neck, but where is the problem coming from? We’ll look at the neck and its neighbors, learn techniques to open and integrate the neck, and address major neck dysfunctions and how we can help with them. We’ll also pay attention to the nervous system and the pelvis, which play a big role in neck pain. This is a hand-on class, so come in clothing that allows your body to be observed and that you can work and be worked on while wearing.

This is a hands-on class. Please bring your table, lubricant, a pillowcase, paper and pen, and dress in comfortable clothes in which you feel comfortable being worked on and seen.

Presentor: George Russell
