When you suffer from stiff muscles or experience emotional blockages, it is nice to apply self-massage. This way you can relax into your body again and experience more energy. You can do self-massage with your hands. But also with fascia massage balls in combination with yin yoga postures. In this blog, you can read more about various ways of self-massage.
Self-massage with your breath
To start with the most important tool that you always have at your disposal. Your breathing. Your breath massages your body from the inside out. Every inhalation, you take space inside. Each exhale releases your tension. You can consciously breathe to the places in your body where you experience tension and create space there.
Self-massage with fascia balls
You can also massage yourself with fascia balls. The fascia is the membrane that holds your body together and where blockages arise due to physical and emotional complaints. Also think of imbalance due to operations in the tissue, due to childbirth or an accident. But trauma-related complaints can also cause imbalance in the fascia. With fascia balls and yin yoga postures, you can regain balance. By seeking out the silence. To go into feeling and to investigate which emotions arise from the physical and emotional body. During my retreats and online breath, yin & fascia therapy workshop we will dive into the knowledge of fascia therapy. Feel welcome to join!
