Therapeutic Couples Massage Class
Touch is a powerful tool to further everyone’s relationship with their bodies and is an essential aspect of intimate relationships. Diane has been doing massage for over 20 years, she owns an award winning business, has authored a book on massage, has provided 20,000 “hands on hours” to clients, and given input to the most prominent workshop providers in self-care industry. Because of the rave reviews Diane has received from couples regarding her work, including those participating in the Healing through Connection Workshop sponsored by Breakthrough at Caron, she has decided to offer classes in the local community and beyond.
The session will provide basic tools to enhance your relationship with your body, your partners body, and increase body awareness. The therapeutic touch shown in this class allows couples to connect physically in a non-sexual way, reducing stress, and building trust. Touch is also a tool to promote self-care together, showing affections mindfully, and communicating in a new way. Diane demonstrates and guides each couple in basic partner massage in a 90-minute session. Each couple remains clothed, this class will uphold the integrity of a professional massage atmosphere, and cater to the needs of each couple. You will not only learn basic techniques, but more about the body, self-care, and your relationship. Though the techniques will be basic in nature they will evolve for years to come.
Classes are currently limited to three couples per class at Freedom Massage in Malvern. Why not come for the class and leave with tools that will enhance your life forever?
