PRESSURE POINTS - CREW FLEECE - BLACK
Crenshaw Wellness turns its focus to the ancient healing technique of pressure. The feet are the entry point to the mind, body and soul, and our most direct tool for interaction with our surroundings. Leave only your footprint. Feel the pressure. Graphic on front left chest and large on back.
100% of the profits from the crewneck will go directly to The Umoja Center, which is helping fight back against gentrification through policy change and the purchasing of local land and businesses.
