SARGA.Rx is not a passive massage method, rather a more technical, client-active therapy that uses time-tested myofascial techniques and applies them to focused, barefoot bodywork. Sessions are performed on a floor pad/yoga mat with clients wearing elastic-type attire such as running shorts/sports bra for women and briefs/running shorts for men. Techniques taught in this class can be useful in rehab, Structural Integration, or Yoga Therapy settings. SARGA Rx is best suited for the structurally minded therapist with a floor-based practice. No Prerequisites.
