Enjoy a rewarding afternoon learning simple massage techniques. Learn the benefits of giving and receiving relaxing, nurturing, therapeutic massage. Discover quick-release techniques for common “trigger points”.


The material covered in this workshop will include lecture and hands-on of the following:

- building trust with your massage partner
- pressure points to release common pain patterns
- an overview of common chronic pain release
- “endangerment sites” to avoid in the body
- proper warming techniques
- an insight into how to “listen” with your hands
- healthy body mechanics for you while you work
- “good” pain versus “productive” pain

As you will be clothed during the class, wear loose-fitting, comfortable apparel in which to work and receive with free movement.

Bring smiles, your compassion, and loving intention.
