50 Min. Myofascial Release Session

$135.00

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

*gratuitites are not accepted for MFR sessions.

Physical Therapy Workshop: Sex Shouldn't Hurt. Period. Registration & E-Pay

$5.00

Do you experience discomfort during intercourse that causes you anxiety or decreases your enjoyment of sex? Perhaps you've come to accept this discomfort as a natural part of being female, or life after giving birth.

We have good news - painful intercourse is very COMMON but it is NOT normal. There are many physical and emotional factors (childbirth, hormonal changes, accidents, trauma) that can negatively effect your pelvic floor which in turn can cause painful spasms.While some health challenges such as pregnancy and postpartum periods seem insurmountable, when pelvic floor dysfunction is directly addressed these symptoms can be vastly improved.

As part of our commitment to educating women about their bodies through our partnership with Pelvic Floor Specialists Body Connect Health & Wellness we are excited to invite you to our upcoming workshop. With over 20 years combined experience Body Connect Physical Therapists know how to create a relaxed and professional atmosphere where no question or topic is too personal.

The class will focus on stretches and self care that can be done in any setting (don't worry, we will all keep our clothes on) Body Connect Physical Therapists can also point the way for future healing to determine if self care at home is enough for you, or if a consultation with a pelvic floor specialist would be appropriate.

Who should take this workshop:

  1. Anybody who experiences pain or discomfort that inhibits their enjoyment of intercourse
  2. Women recovering from childbirth
  3. Every woman.

RSVP & Pay Online: Writing the Body: Poetry Writing Prompt Workshop

$30.00

Writing the Body: Poetry Writing Prompt Workshop

In this monthly workshop, we will write in response to prompts. The prompts will begin with our bodies (muscles, five senses, physical memories) and may bring us anywhere. As we can slowly stretch our body to allow an opening, we will focus on our physical experiences and related memories in order to understand them better. Writing, which includes naming our experiences, is part of how we understand and navigate our world.

Our time together will be spent generating writing in response to prompts. Writers will be invited to read their in-class writing, if they choose to. The focus will be on the creative process (rather than editing and revising the work.)

Writers of all levels welcome.

Please come with a writing surface (clipboard or book) and paper or charged laptop.

You are welcome to register for one or more classes. Each one will be unique and stand on its own.

Chloe Yelena Miller, author of the chapbook Unrest (Finishing Line Press), teaches writing workshops at Politics and Prose Bookstore and privately.

This workshop is offered complimentary as part of the Women's Health Series co-sponsored by The Spa Room and Body Connect Health & Wellness. We do invite you to make a donation to the DC Rape Crisis Center through clicking here.
