Couples Massage Class
Improve the language of love through touch
Massage Class for Couples
This class is carefully crafted to guide couples through the essentials of relaxation massage, empowering them to alleviate stress and address minor muscle issues for each other. Participants will be introduced to key massage terms and corresponding movements. A comprehensive written guide to a full-body massage routine will be provided, allowing participants to take home a valuable reference for movements and patterns. As comfort levels increase, students are encouraged to adapt and personalize the routine to suit their preferences and their partner’s needs.
Given the potential for discomfort when employing massage techniques incorrectly, the class includes cautions. Certain body areas, referred to as endangerment zones, will be avoided, while specific movements for other areas will be explained and demonstrated.
Throughout the class, participants will learn and practice various massage movements. Under supervision, each student will have the opportunity to apply these strokes to their partner, gradually progressing to perform a full massage routine.
The class package includes a handbook featuring massage terms, definitions, and a detailed 1-hour massage routine (taught during the class). The handbook also covers crucial information on Proper Pressure and Speed of massage movements, the use of Lubricants (oil or lotion) and where to obtain them, Health Issues and Contraindications, Areas to Avoid, Special Movements for specific areas, Suggested Equipment, draping techniques, and Setting the Proper Atmosphere.
It’s important to note that this class is not intended for licensed massage therapists, as they are presumed to have foundational knowledge of the material. Additionally, participants are not encouraged to charge for massages based on what they learn in this class. Charging for massage services should be reserved for individuals who have graduated from an accredited massage school and obtained full licensure.
Please be aware that the maximum class size is limited to two participants (preferably a couple), interested in learning basic massage techniques for mutual benefit.
