Traditional Couples Massage
This workshop is designed to begin to help bring massage into daily life. Massage is not only a way for us to reconnect with ourselves through receiving, but can also be a way for us to reconnect with our loved ones. Our fast paced, high stressed busy society needs the calm peaceful surrender of massage. In many parts of the world massage is done in family homes to help relieve each other of some common aches and pains, and we feel that this practice could help to alleviate a great deal of the chronic pain and stress people feel on a daily basis here in the States as well.
By spending just a few minutes with each other you could help to reduce you partners, sore feet, low back pain, neck pain, head aches, help increase range of motion in joints and lengthen tight muscles, and the list goes on and on.
Thai massage is an easy and effortless type of massage that can be done with out causing you sore or tired hands. This type of massage is traditionally done on a floor mat over clothing so requires no special equipment and can be taught to anyone.
This 2 hour workshop will consist of instruction, demonstration and lots of hands on practice.

- Effortless massage techniques that are easy to learn and that actually feel good to give
