If stress, surgery or cancer treatment have created swelling in your body, this class is for you. We will practice techniques that you can take back to the comfort of your home. Breathing techniques, exercise and self massage will be included in this 45 minute class. Bring a water bottle to keep hydrated and improve the flow.
This program will be offered IN-PERSON on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
A Japanologist by education, Liz Hoffmann solidified her movement toward the healing arts by becoming a full time shiatsu practitioner in 1994. Her certification from the Ohashi Institute was followed by training in reflexology, aromatherapy, massage, and eventually Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) for general health and cancer patients. In 2022, she became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist. As a non-smoking lung cancer survivor, she personally experienced how MLD and bodywork enhance healing. She has a private shiatsu and MLD practice a few blocks from the Smith Center. For more information see www.5elementwellness.com.
