Join Doctor Megan Ciccolo, Physical Therapist specializing in John F. Barnes myofascial release, to discover the missing link in keeping your body healthy. In order to fully open your mind, body, and spirit, you need to open your fascia. You may be asking yourself, “What is my fascia and why do I need to open it?” Fascia is the connective tissue system which creates a continuous three-dimensional web of support throughout the body. Over time restrictions develop causing the tissue to solidify. This causes impairments such as changes in posture, decreased flexibility, and/or pain. By opening the fascia, you will experience more freedom of movement, prevent injuries, and maximize your athletic potential. In this workshop you will learn myofascial release self-treatment techniques using small balls. This course was designed to be an introduction to the principles of fascia and self-treatment techniques. Each participant will take home two myofascial release self-treatment balls in order to incorporate this new knowledge into a home practice. For more information on fascia, visit Megan’s website at www.restrictions-released.com. Price of this 120-minute workshop with take home is $45 in advance; $50 day of and $36 for Monthly pass holders. Please wear comfortable, workout-type clothing. Bring a water bottle as well as a notepad and pen if you’d like to take notes. Please check for scheduled dates under our WORKSHOPS tab.

After developing many layers of fascial restrictions from pregnancy and the birth of her two children, Megan has first hand knowledge of the profound benefits of this work. She is enthusiastic to share her knowledge of the fascial system to empower her patients to take back control of their own health. She is passionate about teaching patients how to release their own fascia allowing for an active, pain free life.
