The partner massage class is for anyone who wants to be able to provide a higher quality massage to their spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend/partner, friends, family members, and loved ones. You will not have to remove any clothing at any time during the class. You do not have to be in a relationship of any kind to take this class, bring a friend or family member and have some fun! Please wear comfortable clothes that will be easy to feel through and move in. Something similar to what you would normally wear to a yoga class will be just fine. No prior knowledge of massage is needed nor required. You will learn basics massage therapy techniques, some stretching, and a bit of range of motion. You will also learn proper body mechanics and the basics of proper touch etiquette. The goal for the class is for everyone to be able to have the tools to give a back, shoulder, and neck massage with stretches that will last at least 30min.This course does not prepare you to be a licensed massage therapist in any way.
