About the event

Self-muscle massage uses a tennis ball and clinically proven myofascial release techniques to

relieve stress, improve circulation, and promote holistic wellness through preventative health

management. A simple tennis ball offers a helpful and portable way for anyone (of any age or

mobility) to take care of their body and treat/prevent soreness or tight muscles that can lead to

discomfort or injury. You can even utilize this self-care modality during your workday! This

technique of myofascial release is particularly useful for folks who have difficulty with physical

touch due to past trauma; it provides an autonomous way to experience touch positively.

Guided Self-Massage FAQs

What will happen in this healing circle?

You will be gently guided through a self-muscle massage with a focus on various important

muscle groups.  At the end of the session, there will be an opportunity to ask questions or share

insights that came up.

What do I need for this?

  • a computer/device with access to Zoom
  • a tennis ball, softball, or lacrosse ball (whatever you have in your home)
  • a relaxing space to lie down in (carpet is great, and if you have a floor space, you will want to put down a yoga mat)

Tips for Maximizing your Relaxation:

  • Turn the lights low and/or light candles
  • Gather objects in your home that can create a spa-like atmosphere (flowers, oil diffuser, tea or infused water to sip on).  Get creative and make an occasion out of it!
