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; one person will learn how to give a massage, the other person will be on the table enjoying the massage.
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.
We will meet at the River North Massage Therapy Center, 747 N. LaSalle Dr, 3rd floor, Chicago, IL. The class will take place in one of the classrooms of The New School for Massage, a private vocational school that has prepared students for careers in massage therapy since 2002.
The class runs for 2 hours. 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 as time permits with the partner face up. We follow standard draping procedures and use professional-grade, hypoallergenic lotions.
Lotions, sheets, towels, supplies will be provided.
