Bodywork for Everyone

By bodywork I mean any technique where one person gives therapeutic touch and the other receives. It includes massage but is a broader term that encompasses many different kinds of hands-on work with another person.

In each class we will explore different basic principles and body systems. We will practice specific skills and pay attention to the practitioner’s posture. We will work with anatomical images and learn to distinguish a few key structures by touch. Attitude is just as important as knowledge of technique, anatomy or biomechanics – these classes will also be very much about boundaries, respect and listening.
