Spring will be springing soon, which for some of us means allergies, sinus congestion and pain, headaches, and even migraines. In this 90-minute workshop, Erica Heath LMT will teach you massage techniques that you can do to yourself to relieve the effects of congestion in the face and head. You will learn some very basic anatomy of the lymphatic system that will help you to understand why and how congestion happens. Erica will then show you how to drain the fluids that collect in the head and cause feelings of pressure, pain and stuckness. These techniques have their roots in traditional Indian/Ayurvedic head massage and also incorporate Chinese, European and Thai methods. Used regularly, you can expect relief from pain, swelling and puffiness. Details The workshop will be held in person only. All equipment (coconut oil, kleenex, towel, hand sanitizer) will be provided, but please bring water to drink, and wear a loose-necked shirt that you don't mind getting oil on. Please let us know right away if you have a sensitivity to coconut oil. We will not use any essential oils during the workshop, though we will discuss how you could choose to use them at home. You will be seated at a table with the other participants. You are the only person who will touch your face. Erica will demonstrate the techniques on herself, and then give you guidance and feedback as you practice on yourself. It will be helpful to have a phone with you that you can use it as a mirror, or to record yourself practicing the techniques so that you can refer to it at home.
