When more and more activities become difficult and painful, you may be experiencing repetitive strain. It begins with localized weak, aching muscles. Without treatment, symptoms spread as neighboring muscles pitch in. Swelling may develop... and even nerve tingling or numbness.
A healing regimen includes resting the affected muscles (a brace may help); gentle stretching; appropriate bodywork; and remedial exercise. In order not to compound or repeat the injury, it's also essential to change the activity patterns that caused it in the first place.
Specifically, we need to spend shorter times in activities that fatigue the muscles, and take more and longer breaks from them. For example, my schedule is changing to include:
  • 75-minute as well as 90-minute sessions 
  • Some shorter days (now adding Tuesday evening!)
  • Yoga offerings interspersed with massage.

*These classes are designed for older adults, newer students, and anyone who experiences some stiffness or range-of-motion limitations. We start in a chair, move to standing at the chair or wall, then come down to our mats. On the mats, we are on our sides and backs; not hands and knees unless it is appropriate for everyone in class. You complete a health history form so I can design a class that is safe and beneficial for you. Cost is $12 per class or, for your convenience, 6 consecutive weeks for $60 paid up front.
