And of course if you live in the Winnipeg and surrounding areas, I do private one on one sessions to gear the work to what you need. Cost $75.00 per session which is typically about 60-90 minutes. This is a great way to learn this practice gearing it towards your needs. Prices include 2 people (husband/wife/friends) or a private one on one session for approximately 90 minutes in your home or mine home studio.
What is block therapy and why would anyone do this kind of work?
Block Therapy is a is a therapy, exercise, and meditation combined and is a wonderful complement to any exercise because it improves blood flow and mobility. Students have reported the benefits of this therapy are that it improves circulation and lymphatic drainage, releases toxins, speeds healing of acute injuries, improves the appearance of skin and hair, and reduces cellulite.
The first class of the 3 always begins with the core where we learn diaphragmatic breathing and then the second week it is all about the leg/pelvic region and the third class is about working through restrictions in the head and neck area.
Join me, you won’t regret it.
