We are so excited to offer the gift of massage education to our community during our monthly Taste of Massage workshops. Each month we will explore a different segment of massage therapy. No two workshops are the same. Anyone is welcome to join us for these free workshops. Absolutely no massage experience is necessary to participate. We encourage you to bring a friend and join us for an evening of fun and knowledge.
After joining us, you'll walk away unable to deny the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we use to describe massage (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Children's Massage - Wednesday, June 21, 2017 (6-8 PM)
During this free workshop, explore Children's Massage techniques. Touch is the first sense to develop in humans. It is essential to our health and well-being. Babies have been known to fail to thrive and even die without an adequate amount of physical contact. Adults, as well, can become depressed and ill if they are isolated from this most basic of human needs. Children who learn healthy views of touch and are provided with positive tactile experience by their caregivers are more likely to grow up to be adults with healthy self-esteem, a sense of appropriate boundaries and long-lasting intimate relationships.
Chair Massage - Wednesday, July 19, 2017 (6-8 PM)

Experience hand and foot reflexology. Reflexology involves the application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
