The workshop is for couples, family members or friends (any two people over the age of 18 ) and is approx 2 hrs long. This allows enough time for both of you to give and receive a very thorough massage from each other. There will be an introduction where the workshop will be outlined, then taken in turns.

Practiced regularly in the privacy of your own space the benefits of massage will impact on you both mentally and physically:

Relaxes both mind and body; reduces muscle aches and lower back pain; helps promote digestion; Improves mental health and promotes a healthy mind; boosts immunity by increasing white blood cell count; improves recovery from exercise; improves poor sleep patterns

Carve out the time and space at home after workshop to continue the Power of Touch. If you don’t have a massage table at home don’t worry as strokes can be performed on the floor in a warm space using a yoga mat, pillows and towels.

The Private workshops can be tailored to the part of the body you and your partner both agree on or you can request additional workshops to follow along through an entire body massage.

PRIVATE SESSIONS

For those that want a more personalised and/or private experience we offer individual massage workshops.

The private sessions are usually held at the Greenbank Hotel, however we can set up a session at your home, or hotel suite. If the session is in your home/hotel suite, your therapist will bring a professional massage table and suitable oils. You should prepare a warm, comfortable space with own towels etc

HOW IT WORKS

The best way to learn is by doing the massage. After a thorough introduction on techniques, outline of what will happen and practice demonstrations, you will take it in turns to massage each other. This means that you will both receive a thirty minute massage from each other.
