You do everything right, but you’re still tight. You work out, eat pretty well, drink water, floss daily. But you’re still tight. And sometimes injured. Why?

Because you’re overlooking one of the best medicines for the body: loosening your musculature. Your body tightens as a normal response to everything we do, even the good stuff. Resting, stretching, and strengthening won’t fix this. Loosen Up by working directly with your muscles to unravel the tension. You do this when you get bodywork or massage from a practitioner. Now learn to Loosen Up on your own, in your home or at work, using simple and portable tools.

In this event hosted at Planet Granite San Francisco, we will visit and release the body’s most notorious holding points for tension and stress. You’ll finish this one-hour workshop with a customized, take-home map of your body’s tight spots, easy and clear instructions on how to release these muscles, and some simple new ideas about how to feel comfortable and perform best in your body.
