What you'll do
This is an introductory workshop aimed at teaching you basic massage skills for tension and pain relief. I have offered various introductory workshop for over 10 years, and this version is for couples. It is intended to teach basic massage techniques for fun, relaxation, and minor pain relief. This is a two-hour group class, and you must bring a partner with you so that you can practice. Please note that the workshop price is *per couple*. One person will learn how to give a massage, the other person will be on the table enjoying the massage. In the first hour we will cover stroking, gliding, kneading, and friction techniques on the back, glutes, and legs with our partner laying face down. In the second hour we will practice techniques on legs, arms, head and neck, and chest and abdomen with the partner face up. We follow standard draping procedures and use professional-grade, hypoallergenic lotions. Note: this is a group class, there can be up to 5 couples attending. If you prefer to schedule a private class or one at a time not shown on the calendar, please message me and we can add to the schedule.
I am the founder of The New School for Massage and River North Massage Therapy Center. Our school has helped more than 1,000 students start their massage careers over the past 17 years, and our massage center has hosted over 100,000 massage sessions. I love to share massage therapy with those who are interested in exploring touch professionally or for fun.
Equipment and supplies I will provide a massage table, stools, sheets, towels, and lotions.
