Give your friends and family the gift of relaxing massage. Anyone can learn the basic massage strokes to relieve aching muscles, relax a tense body, or just offer comfort. Instructor: Sue Russell, LMP. Feb 8, Sat, 9:30a.m.-5:30p.m. 6.5 HRs

You'll receive hands-on experience giving simple massage to the neck, shoulders, back, arms, legs, hands and feet. Handouts and massage lotion are included. Since you will be practicing massage techniques during class, inviting a friend or partner is a must so you can practice on one another. You enroll for full price and your friend/partner enrolls free! Both persons must register. Open to those who are age15 and over.

Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:

  • Identify the positive effects that massage has on the body.
  • Identify the “endangerment” areas that should not be massaged.
  • Identify when it is not appropriate to massage a friend or family member.
  • Demonstrate at least five simple massage strokes.
  • Achieve a level of self-confidence enabling you to offer simple massage to a friend or family member.

Please Bring: Each couple should bring two pillows and one blanket. Wear layers, including shorts (that can be rolled up easily) and a sleeveless tank top (giving access to the neck and shoulders).

Meals: One hour lunch break – Bring a sack lunch or eat in Bastyr’s dining commons

Location: Bastyr University Kenmore Campus, room 55. Bastyr University is housed in an older facility with fluctuating interior temperatures; it is advisable to wear layers. Also, Bastyr is a “fragrance-free” campus.
