INTRODUCTORY BLOCK THERAPY™ CLASS

Send To Friend?

Instructor: Joanne Holt

Block Therapy is done lying down on a yoga mat as you relax and breathe using your diaphragm enabling you to work through scar tissue. This therapy is excellent for anxiety, depression, pain and headaches. A cedar Block Buddy™ and other equipment are provided for the class.

There are three parts to the Block Therapy classes:

  1. Core & Back –Release the compressed tissue in your stomach and rib cage to get deeper access to the diaphragm muscle. This helps benefit all the systems in the body with better functioning of the diaphragm which dramatically increases oxygenation to the cells and the abdominal organs. Heart and lungs receive improved blood and energy flow allowing the body to function more efficiently as a whole. This class wraps up with some amazing back positions.
  2. Pelvis & Legs –Melt the compressed tissue in your pelvis and legs and improve circulation to your organs of reproduction. It all benefits muscle function and improves the appearance of tissue.
  3. Head, Neck and Arms – Melt the compressed tissue in your upper body, arms, neck and face. This improves muscle function and tissue appearance and realigns the head taking pressure away from the upper back and neck. Increased circulation benefits all the structures in the area, including the brain, hair, eyes and thyroid gland. This provides an improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin.

Some Benefits of Block Therapy™
