It is the wordless way in which we connect, soothe, support and say, I love you.
Would you like to learn how to help your partner to relax and unwind with a massage after a heavy day?
Learn how to open your relationship to more of this loving and supportive dialogue by using the power of massage to melt away the stress of a hard day, reduce specific muscle aches, or just connect.
In this beginners class you will learn how to first create a relaxing and comforting space with music, scent and light. You will then learn the basic techniques for giving massage and some of the most common problem muscles to target.
If you have been reluctant to give your loved one a neck rub because you feel clunky or think you are doing it wrong, then after this workshop you will have the confidence to share this life-time skill with them. And most of all, you will learn the joy of knowing how good you can make your partner feel.
Spaces are limited to eight people (i.e. four couples) to enable one-on-one attention during the class.
What to expect
You are not expected to take off any clothes — you can use the skills you will learn with or without clothing, so you can adapt what you learn as you please. So, while singlets and tank tops are probably the best idea on the day, a tee shirt is just fine, too.
The idea is for you to take away skills you can use to give someone a massage at home, using what you have at hand.

I have been an accredited massage therapist since 2007 having qualified at the NZ College of Massage. I currently practice in Ascot Vale at Feel Better Massage. My industry accreditation is with the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (member # 027422), and I hold a current first aid certificate.
Joining me is my partner and 'stunt body' Claire, who will help provide demonstrations for the class.
As well as providing therapeutic massage services and public classes like this, I provide volunteer massage to PeterMac Cancer Center and the Anxiety Recovery Center of Victoria on a rotational weekly basis.
Finally, I write a blog called The Feel Better Message — come visit!
