with Layna Cirelli

August 12th

Location ASIS Prescott 115 S. Mccormick St. Prescott AZ


Neck and shoulder pain are the most common complaints addressed by massage therapists.  Treating these symptoms, and their causes, effectively can be elusive and frustrating.

This workshop will discuss the anatomical, kinesthetic, and psychosomatic causes of the most common neck and head ailments such as stiff neck, TMJ, headaches, whiplash, etc.  We will discuss how posture, work environment, habitual patterns of body usage, and the effects of stress can cause and/or aggravate these ailments.

We will also learn fascial hands-on techniques, as well as fascial stretching movements, to effectively treat head and neck pain and the tissues involved.

This workshop will consist of connective tissue techniques to address the following:

-       rebalance the musculature surrounding and supporting the neck and head

-       address the common postural patterns that are the cause of neck and head pain

-       address common neck and head ailments such as headaches, TMJ and whiplash.
