Workshop: myofascial release of back, neck and shoulders


Sign up

Tuesday 29 December 2020, from 17.00 to 19.00

With massage therapist Katrien Maes

Do you want to release tension in your upper body? Are you tired of being dependent on physio-massage therapist or osteopath to feel less pain or stiffness? Do you want to have some tools to release myofascial tension and pain in back, neck and shoulders?
In this workshop you will learn how to treat your upper body yourself:
  • You will discover where you have (cumulated) tension in your upper body, by means of a self-test and a body awareness exercise.
  • You will learn some basics about (myo)fascia: what it is, why it is so important, why it gets dehydrated and what you can do to rehydrate.
  • You will learn several exercises related to myofascial stretching and self-massage with the help of a tennis/massage ball.

During the interactive workshop, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. You will receive the exercises by mail after the workshop, so you can continue to treat your upper body yourself.


The teacher

Katrien Maes is an Ayurvedic and manual therapist. Manual and massage therapy is often very effective in treating (built up) tension in a body, but sometimes kine/osteopathy/manual therapy is not enough, sometimes more is needed to get or keep a body tension-free.

Katrien discovered the importance of treating the connective tissue in and around muscles – the myofascia- and experienced that frequent work on this tension-sensitive zone of a body, by means of connective tissue stretching exercises and self-massage, is sustainably effective in treating muscular tension.

Next to her practice as a manual therapist, she developed workshops and webinars in which she teaches people what they can do themselves to get or keep their body tension free, by working on the myofascia. More about Katrien on her website www.katrienmaes.com.
