Neck and Back Care for Veterans

This class provides anatomical understanding of the back, neck, and body in order to unlearn patterns of overuse and build your body’s best functioning. Learn how to relax tight muscles, correct postural imbalances, and balance effort among the small and large muscle groups of the back, chest, and abdomen. Taught by an acupuncturist and yoga teacher who has made it past years of chronic back pain due to underlying genetic issues as well as athletic overuse, this class will also suggest breathing and acupressure techniques to relieve pain as well as diet to reduce inflammation. Everyone is welcome.
