What a rewarding experience to shift our attention to massage and touch healing on a sunny afternoon in Somerset West!
A group of interested enthusiastic participants attended a short course introducing how to use caring touch to enhance the physical and emotional wellbeing of loved ones.
They had gathered to join the Massage for Me & Mine short course to learn how to safely and effectively massage their family & friends and share in Erika and my longtime fascination and experience with caring touch.
WHO WE ARE
Before I give an overview of our opening session, let me introduce who we are and why we want to share our knowledge. We have both been massage professionals for 20 years in our respective practice. To teach our skills and share methods in an introductory and accessible way is our aim to give others the pleasure of conscious touch to allow self to connect to love and loved ones.
THE INTRODUCTORY SESSION
Two hours, Intro Part 1, Wednesday 18th October 2023, Blandford House, Somerset West
Erika introduced a short history of massage in an entertaining presentation filled with anecdotes and images to guide the expounding. She explained that massage has been used for all time as a way of soothing, healing and restoring vitality to the corporeal body.
Many schools of lineage from all parts of the world and a multitude of styles have developed. We teach an integrative holistic massage based on therapeutic massage and intuitive massage schools and best practice, personal well-being principles, contra-indications and basic connective tissue manipulations. There is no need to memorise or take notes as a booklet is provided.
A quick tea break then we hit the floor, and the walls armed with massage balls and towels.
The practical aspect was fun, with sensitivity, humour and enthusiasm demonstrating the effective relief that can be achieved with simple techniques and equipment readily available at home.
Surface exploration into massage for self (me) and mine (loved ones) is gentle and you can build confidence and cadence with Naulene and Erika, professional and experienced massage therapists.
We look forward to introducing you to the magic of massage and what safe and effective touch can do for you, your family and friends.
