Missy Graff Ballone of Wellness for Makers Shares How Artists Can Move to Stay Healthy
While the COVID-19 crisis and resulting quarantine have challenged many aspects of our lives, finding positive ways to guide us through to the other side have been inspiring.
While scrolling through Instagram one day, I came across Missy Graff Ballone’s feed, Wellness for Makers.
A metalsmith, alignment based yoga instructor, and licensed massage therapist, Missy shares how makers can work more efficiency using healthy movement habits.
She combines her education and familiarity with the body to show makers and creatives how to care for their hands and avoid common injuries with mindful movement.
In “Wellness for Makers” Podcast, Missy shares tips for makers in and out of the studio, along with inspiring stories of artists and makers who have recovered from injuries.
I’m happy and excited for Missy to share her specialized expertise, and to give back to makers and artists during the COVID recovery, Missy is offering scholarships for her courses, one of which will be donated through this episode of Jewelry Navigator Podcast!

People from every walk of life and career are susceptible to injury, many of which happen from repetitive movement, poor alignment and posture.
Combining her education and familiarity with the body and movement, Missy has created a parallel business teaching artists and creators to protect their health and their hands.
Missy also offers helpful resources on her website, wellnessformakers.com which include a free self-care guide, her “Guide to Happy Healthy Hands”, her free Mini Course, “Creating Resilience”, and helpful tools for small businesses.
