Join us in the Oak Room for a pop-up ELDOA class with Angie Campbell, certified ELDOA trainer and yoga therapist. The ELDOA method creates space and balance in the body by using myofascial stretches and specific osteopathic techniques to improve posture, relieve pain, and prevent injury. This class is appropriate for anyone seeking to improve posture, relieve chronic or acute pain, recover from training, or enhance overall well-being.
You probably know of chiropractic treatment and physical therapy for pain relief and posture work, but did you know there is also a specific branch of training that teaches your body to heal itself on its own? The ELDOA method involves a variety of one-minute exercises specific to a certain joint or area of the body that are designed to self-normalize those tissues. These exercises are very specific and sometimes complex stretches — more adeptly called “extreme end-range contractions.”
It’s that time of year again — sneezing, itching, sniffling, and coughing. Chances are, you’re one of the 24 million Americans who experience seasonal allergies, and you’re familiar with the toll it can take on your body. Due to both the symptoms of seasonal allergies, and the physiological process your body goes through when reacting to an allergen, your health can suffer more than usual during this time of year. And oftentimes, allergy medicines only provide temporary relief. It’s important to keep in mind your body’s overall well-being when dealing with allergies, and not just treat the isolated symptoms.
Why is stretching so essential? What’s the best way to do it quickly and effectively? Learn about the benefits of stretching and the most useful stretches for all the major muscle groups.

Follow along with each stretch from the comfort of your own home. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing to move around.
