Our Roll with Me! workshop series will teach you how to treat your own muscles, joints, and fascia by rolling on balls, rollers, and more. Each workshop will focus on relieving pain, discomfort, trigger points, and tightness and increase the range of motion of a specific area of the body. Participants will not only find less discomfort and more ease in their daily lives, but they will also notice increased performance in athletic and fitness activities.
This workshop will focus on the upper back, neck, and shoulders. Participants will learn how to mobilize the joints of the upper spine and ribs, as well as how to release restrictions in the soft tissues of the upper back, neck, and shoulders. The techniques learned in this workshop can help relieve upper back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, tension headaches, TMJ, and more! These techniques are especially helpful for computer users, drivers, and anybody who has to sit for long periods of time. For athletes, this workshop is especially helpful for sports activities that require a good range of motion in the shoulders, i.e. swimming, running, Crossfit, golf, rock climbing, basketball, baseball, tennis, martial arts, and weight lifting.
You will need a set of Tune Up Fitness classic therapy balls and a Tune Up Fitness alpha ball. If you don't have these, you can substitute two tennis or lacrosse balls and a sock to tie them in for the classic balls, and a softball or similar size ball for the alpha ball.
