Advanced Esalen® Massage with Special Focus on the Shoulder Girdle

Nov 09 - 14 Begins in 3 months
with Char Pias & Jessica Fagan

This advanced massage workshop focuses on the shoulder girdle and the interplay of muscular balance between the neck, thoracic cavity, spine, and arms. Imbalances and chronic tension around the scapulae, neck, and shoulder are frequently caused by misaligned habitual movement patterns. These holding patterns result in kyphosis, elevated/retracted shoulders, or a depressed chest, all of which affect one’s ability to breathe fully and can support habits of fear and anxiety.
