Self-Massage for Chest Binding
Binding (using a special garment or tight sports bra to flatten the chest) is a vital tool for many of gender non-conforming people. Unfortunately, it can have serious impacts on the body because of breath constriction, muscle tightness, and alignment. The class addresses chest opening, breathing expansion, upper back & neck release, and ribcage pain relief by teaching a variety of tools for mitigating the impacts of binding through self-massage, stretching and fascial release.
People who bind currently and are experiencing pain, people who are new to binding but want to develop strategies to stay healthy, and people who no longer bind but are still struggling with pain and restriction.
