The healing power of touch is a force to be reckoned with.

That’s why we have welcomed the amazing Michelle Dornbusch to the team here at Verve.

It has become a way of the world (well, in our Western culture at least!) that we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders.

We sit in the same position for several hours a day, and we develop tension and resistance in our fascia (a sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin that connects all our organs, muscles).

We end up with postural problems, pain and inflammation, and tense muscles.

Mental, physical and emotional stress all contribute to this tension - along with our diets, lifestyles and state of health.

So, what can we do to combat the tension we carry with us?

What can we do to relieve stress, improve movement, shift pain and feel awesome (despite our busy lives)?
