Massage balls for fascial ball rolling

Roll Back Time:
Fascial Ball Rolling Workshop
Sunday February 24 (1:30 – 5pm)

Members and non-members welcome!

Add this tool to your well-being, health & fitness toolbox, and you can use it for life: Keep your muscles healthy and happy with Fascial Ball Rolling presented by Janice Kalyta, RMT.

You may not be aware, but we all hold a tremendous amount of tension and stress in our legs and feet.

Here is a quick test. The next time you are standing in the kitchen washing dishes, stop and feel your legs... I can almost guarantee that you are standing with your legs tight and you are clenching or squeezing your cheeks together! These muscles are so overused and tight, they have forgotten how to function properly.

Overworked and exhausted muscles left un­checked create further pain and discomfort down the road:

  • lower back pain
  • knee pain
  • hip pain
  • numb or tingling feet
  • swelling in the feet or lower legs

Ignored pain creates injury. Once this ‘pain cycle’ begins, the healing process could take weeks, months or longer.

Get Maximum Results Using Fascial Ball Rolling
Rolling is not as simple as just taking any ball and rolling around on it. You will learn specific techniques for maximum results, including:

  • How to engage each muscle's tissue
  • Discover what the target areas are of each of the muscles you are rolling out
  • Learn to feel the difference by rolling correctly
  • Realize how a 10 min rolling session can make a huge difference, and more
  • Some of the Benefits of Learning How to Properly Roll Your Legs and Feet:
  • ease of movement
  • better blood flow to your lower legs and feet
  • better flexibility
  • get better sleep and less achy when rising
  • roll back time and like you're young again! ... ok, only so much a ball can do about that. But come see how rolling can be a game changer.

Exclusive Offer for Early Bird Registration

  • Workshop price is $179. Register by February 16 and pay $89.
  • Plus, discount available for fascial balls
  • To register, please email Janice Kalyta at mhmtkalyta@gmail.com or call 780­-619­-6109.

Check out what participants had to say:

"...after rolling one foot, it feels like it is wider than the other one; now my foot has greater contact with the floor!" 
– J Krossa­Wong CSEP­CPT, NASM­CES

"I feel more open and expanded in my feet and legs. I feel like dancing. I feel lighter! Thank you!" 
– M Russell

“Janice has a wealth of personal knowledge from her own real life experiences, as well as her education and practice as a Therapeutic Massage Therapist ­assuring you are in good hands during the workshop. I appreciate that Janice looks at each person individually and assists each student when needed... but doesn’t do the work for them.” 
– M Tessmer
