A Combined Approach: Hands-On and Cupping Techniques for Neck Fascia

Course Date/Time: Monday, March 21, 2022, 2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. MDT (Live Q&A 3:45 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.)

Course Description: Fascia is one of the most diverse, specialized, and fascinating tissues in the body. This complicated, highly variable, and seemingly magical stuff that wraps, insulates, and connects all the things inside of us can be especially tricky to navigate in the neck. In this dynamic course, Allison Denney and Dr. Joi Edwards team up to bring you a variety of techniques to work the fascia of the neck associated with three specific muscles: the sternocleidomastoid, levator scapulae, and scalene muscles. Learn hands-on techniques from Allison and myofascial decompression techniques using cupping therapy from Joi.
