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.
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.
