Why Come To a Self-Care Class?

Why Self Care Classes?

I regularly provide self-care instruction as part of a treatment session. However, it seems like there is seldom enough time to cover the topic fully. The full range of self care instruction includes:

  • Anatomy/Medical Background

  • Guided Self-Exploration

  • Targeted Self-Compression

  • Test Range of Motion

  • Stretching and Conditioning

  • Retrain Basic Movements

  • Reduce Perpetuating Factors

Where and When?

Classes are offered three days a week in our beautiful Campton Hills location:

Mondays at 10am
Wednesdays at 7pm
Saturdays at 8am.

At $15/session, you can’t beat the price!
Includes effective use of rollers, tennis/lacrosse balls and “knobbers” – suitable for all ability levels.

Space is limited so book your first class today.

Self care tools and other materials provided. Yoga mats available or you may bring your own. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. Compression garments are not recommended for this class.

What Will I Learn In This Class?

What is self-care? Some of think of it as an exercise class but it is both more than that and less at the same time. We provide important background knowledge and teach you how to explore and treat your own muscles and connective tissue. We will be using self-compression, muscle activation, stretching and conditioning techniques. No self care class is complete without reviewing movement patterns and factors that perpetuate myofascial pain and dysfunction:

  • Background knowledge. We’re not going to medical school here. However, it is important to have some basic knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and specific techniques to address challenges you might be experiencing. In this class we will present more material than we have time for as part of a treatment session.
  • Self-exploration. You are the expert in how you are feeling. In a treatment session, the therapist can feel changes in the consistency of your muscles and connective tissue and maintains a dialogue with you about it. During a self-care session, you are your own therapist, searching for specific areas of discomfort and variations in range of motion.
  • Self-compression. Pressure release is the foundation of myofascial self care. You will learn where to apply self-compress for the best results, depending on what you have discovered in the self-exploration of your muscles and connective tissue.
  • Range of motion. We typically run the body part associated with the area we are caring for through its full range of motion in conjunction with self-compress. We will review safe and effective ways of doing this.
  • Stretching and conditioning. Some tissues typically benefit from stretches, some muscles need to activated or reconditioned to increase strength and restore balance with tighter areas. I will teach you how make the most effective use of a limited amount of time in this aspect of self-care.il
  • Movement training. Over time, the almost perfect movement patterns we are born with change in response to various activities. Educational, sports and recreational activities of children, and later, the demands of our occupations and modern technology alter these patterns. We’ll practice reprogramming these patterns.
  • Perpetuating factors. We often say that anything that can cause an episode of myofascial pain will perpetuate it if we don’t eliminate that factor. We’ll review common perpetuating factors and discuss how to reduce or eliminate them.

Janet was great – knowledgeable and she found all my “hot spots.”

Seriously, if you are looking for massage therapy that actually does your body good–that changes its function for the better and actually makes pain go away–then this is the place you need to come. Not Massage Envy. Not a chiropractor. You need trigger point from knowledgeable experts in the craft.
