February 23rd, 2019 (130pm - 330pm) - Wrist Health
Do you know that if you are typing 4 hours a day, in a week you add over 10,500 pounds of pressure to your wrist?
We also live in a device-centric society, whether it be for work or pleasure, sitting at a computer has been and continues to be an ever-growing part of everyday life. Tiny injuries due to added pressure as well as repetitive movements can lead to inflammation and damage the muscles, nerves and tendons resulting in pain and discomfort in the wrists Many practitioners experience wrist pain while doing yoga, and if we understand the anatomy of the wrists, we know that they are not designed to bear weight in the same way our ankles are. But it is never to late to prevent or reverse the damaging effect of overuse and stop symptoms of pain, fatigue, weak grip or tingling to get to chronic stages.
In this workshop, RMT and Yoga Instructor Raluca Sacalean will offer self-massage techniques, trigger point release, stretches and loads of information to support your wrist health. This workshop is for those who experience wrist pain while practicing yoga, or are suffering from carpal tunnel, as well as those who may be at risk for carpal tunnel syndrome.
