I recently had a visit from my sister who was complaining of RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) and wondered if I had any suggestions that might help her. Being a nurse, my sister had already considered decreasing her caffeine, increasing her electrolytes, taking hot showers before bed, taking or applying Magnesium, and she even had tried wearing compression stockings during her shifts. None of this seemed to affect her restless legs.
As it turned out, I was conducting an evening Release class while she was in town, so she joined in to see what her little sister (that’s me) was up to. After 1 hour of releases, she reported feeling very relaxed and hungry. So, after class we made a fabulous meal while listening to Brandi Carlile, watched a great movie, and went to bed.
The next morning I asked her how she had slept. She was ecstatic and reported that she did not have any RLS! And it was the best she had slept in months! She was sold on the idea of releasing and stretching every night before bed to have a better night's rest. Such a small thing can make such a big difference!
If you would like to learn helpful self Release strategies focused on releasing the fascia not only involving your legs but also affecting your overworked feet, you won’t want to miss my next RELEASE class on Wednesday, November 13th, from 5 - 6:30 pm! I know you will be so glad (like my sister) that you did!
I hope to see you there!
