In today’s device-centric society, whether it be for work or pleasure, sitting at a computer has been and continues to be an ever-growing part of everyday life.  If you do repetitive work, whether its typing on a keyboard all day, pouring espresso shots, cutting hair, or operating heavy machinery, you might be at risk of repetitive strain injuries like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  Tiny injuries due to repetitive movements can lead to inflammation and damage the muscles, nerves and tendons resulting in pain and discomfort in the wrists.

Free Your Hip Flexors

Teacher: Raluca
Date: Sunday April 8
Time: 1:30pm-3:30pm
Cost: $45+tax

In Free Your Hip Flexors you will learn how the psoas or hip flexor muscles are one of the main reasons we experience low back pain, and how our repetitive movements, whether it be that you sit at a desk all day, or are active and like to run, jog, or cycle, dictate the resting length and quality of our hip flexors, which for most of us is short and tight. This tightness can radiate throughout the body, causing tension and strain through the soft tissues, which can eventually lead to chronic pain. Massage, physio, and chiropractic work may alleviate these symptoms temporarily, but until we take matters into our own hands and make it a daily practice, the symptoms will always return.

Join Bliss RMT Raluca for this 2-hour workshop, which is designed to empower you by gaining more insight about what is happening in your own body, and give you tools to begin to restore balance so to live in comfort and freedom. With the focus on the hip flexor or psoas muscles, you will learn trigger points, self massage techniques, gentle stretches and yoga postures, so to retrain your body and your brain to improve your posture and alleviate pain.
You will also receive a gift of 15% of a 30-minute targeted treatment massage with Raluca if booked on the day of the workshop.
This is a 2-hour workshop for $45+tax

Plantar Fasciitis ~ Prevention & Pacification

Teacher: Bliss RMT Raluca
Date: Sunday April 15
Time: 1:30pm-3:30pm
Cost: $45+tax

The foundation of our physical form is our feet. They carry us through each day, provide us with stability and help to keep us grounded. When our foundation becomes unstable, all that is standing upon it will also be affected, so the health of our feet is imperative to the healthy alignment of our whole body. Plantar Fasciitis is a common ailment that many of us suffer with. Caused by tightening and inflammation of the plantar fascia at the attachment to the heel bone due to repetitive high impact activities, a tight posterior chain (calf and hamstring muscles), high body mass index, or high or fallen arches.

Join Bliss RMT Raluca for this workshop where you will learn techniques to begin to alleviate some of the symptoms caused by plantar fasciitis, as well as how to prevent it from happening in the first place. Through self-massage, myofascial release, trigger point release, and specific stretches targeted at the muscles and fascial lines that can provoke plantar fasciitis, we can begin to restore the health and elasticity of the fascia in the feet so its distribution properties can be restored to contribute to the overall healthy alignment of the whole body.

This workshop is designed for people who are currently struggling with plantar fasciitis as well as those concerned with their foot health and are focused more on prevention.

This is a 2-hour workshop for $45+tax.

Therapeutic Yoga with Kat

What makes Therapeutic Movement unique is the adaptation of yoga postures, which are practiced in a way to enhance the rejuvenation process while deeply connecting with the self and the body as it heals. This Therapeutic Yoga class is designed to give bodies the opportunity to restore, repair, and recover in an intimate and fully supported environment, receiving personal modifications and adjustments by one of our specially trained therapeutic yoga teachers. In these classes we adopt an attitude of ‘less is more’ and learn simple yet specific postures and movements that require just enough effort to strengthen and create stability to the areas of recovery, while cultivating kindness to leave room for the inner workings of our own wisdom body to begin to move into a state of healing. These exercises assist in not only rehabilitating the body, but also in nourishing and connecting the heart and the mind, which allows us to settle into a state of acceptance and allowance, adjusting our attitude towards our present condition and becoming self-invested in our own healing.
