We could all use a few more tools in our self-care kit these days. A simple way to de-stress, improve your mood, and practice kindness towards yourself is An-Mo Gong, or Self-Healing Massage.
We'll use specific tapping, and gentle sweeping, and circular motions to activate the flow of blood, energy, and vitality in our organs, joints, hands, feet, and energy centers and channels. Some practices also incorporate specific breathing techniques and visualizations.
This class is suitable for people of all bodies and abilities.
We offer a sliding scale so people affected economically by the pandemic can still join us. Please support the teacher and the studio if you can. Thank you.
