Our hands are truly amazing! Aristotle described the human hand as the “tool of tools.” And unfortunately many of us develop the unhealthy habit of using our hands too much.
What if caring for your hands were as easy and enjoyable as spending a few minutes playfully rolling with a small bright-green ball? Ball Rolling for Happy, Healthy Hands introduces a fun and accessible method for providing self-care for our overused hands. Learn more than 25 playful healing movements, healthier posture and positioning, greater awareness of ergonomics, better breathing, enhanced relaxation, and whole body benefits.
Participants will receive an instructional book and set of Small Health Balls.
This workshop is open to all students of all abilities, with no previous knowledge or experience necessary.
