The Art of Self Care & Healing Massage Workshop

I'm teaming up once again with lululemon athletica (my all time favorite exercise clothes store) to present a new workshop The Art of Self Care & Healing Massage. This time in partnership with Zoe Levine, personal trainer extraordinaire and MELT method instructor.

@ lululemon athletica

472 Bergen St. @ Flatbush Ave in Park Slope (2/3 to Bergen)

Wednesday, November 4th, 7-8:30pm

It's FREE!!!

In this workshop, body practitioners Zoe Levine and Elyse Sparkes will share techniques on self-care and healing others through the MELT method and Thai yoga massage. Learn easy ways to make your body feel great on your own and with the help of a partner. Awaken and energize your hands and feet with MELT methods, and then use your increased sensitivity in full body assisted stretches and Thai massage. You'll leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

The M.E.L.T. Method® (MELT) is a self-treatment technique that helps prevent pain, heal injury, and erase the negative effects of aging and active living. In this workshop MELT instructor Zoe Levine ( will guide you through simple yet powerful self-treatment techniques that reduce pain and tension in your whole body by treating just your hands and feet. Regular treatment can provide relief from neck and low back pain, arthritis, bunions, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

These quick self-treatments can be done anywhere – home, work, or travel.

Thai yoga massage is a modality that combines stretching, reflexology, energy line work, yoga poses, and massage. Learn to be both the giver and the receiver in this workshop, which will focus on increasing flexibility and improving circulation for your whole body. Your instructor Elyse Sparkes,, will show you ways to reduce stress and feel completely relaxed.

Bring a friend so you'll be able to practice these new healing techniques at home!
