Why Partners in Touch?

I’ve been working in complementary and alternative medicine for many years, and one powerful healing modality I use regularly is massage.  I find that teaching massage is really rewarding  – just a little know-how and technique delivers a whole new experience for those learning.

I’ve been running various Massage classes since 1992, and Massage for Couples (mostly at the Centre of Adult Education, Melbourne CBD ) since 1998.  Then closer to home in venues around the Dandenong Ranges (one east of Melbourne).

Having relocated to Queensland this year 2023, I aim to share this valuable experience with you in the Hervey Bay region.

Let me know if you have a group of people you’d like to organize for me for this event.

I find that learning about massage as a couple is a great way to improve communication and re-connection – as well as being a celebration of togetherness.  The healing power of touch and concentrated time out together (no phones, no kids, no distractions) means that you get more than “a class” – you have time out with your intimate partner.

Connect, learn and communicate

Make a special time to reconnect and share through the power of touch.  Celebrate being with each other and renew and enrich your connection in largely non-verbal conversation.

Together you will learn a skill AND build a non-verbal “vocabulary” to communicate about what your body likes and dislikes. Loving touch can rekindle intimacy.

At the end of the class you will be able to give (and receive) a satisfying massage with confidence and energy.

Learn and re-learn touch

Uncover what you already know about touch – and learn more about techniques for creating relaxation and ease.

I use a structured process developed over years of teaching to share specific techniques that you can use straight away.

Massage is much more than stroking – it’s a craft and a learned practice with proven principles and techniques that deliver real relaxation and renewed connection.

A small amount of guided practice and a new understanding can enable you to have a whole new experience.

The techniques you will learn are drawn from many approaches including:

  • relaxation massage
  • therapeutic massage
  • trigger point therapy
  • acupressure
  • Swedish massage

How does the workshop work?

Each couple gets a height-adjustable massage table to use for the session, along with massage oils. You bring your favourite, softest towels and sheet and two pillows/cushions to create your own private space.

You wear as much or as little as you like – each couple creates their own space within the group. I help create an ambience with music and space to facilitate intimacy within your personal comfort zone.

You stay with your partner throughout – taking the time to learn more about each other and how to nourish and cherish each other.

I take a gentle (yet powerful) approach to teaching you, carefully crafting a supportive and nurturing COVID safe environment while guiding you through specific techniques. This allows safe boundaries to be observed in a group setting.

Usually I have 6 to 8 couples in a workshop, or as social distancing allows. We spend a short time as a group discussing the process.  Then the main time is spent with me demonstrating techniques which you as a couple will then practise. I will walk around and encourage you, answer individual questions or make suggestions for more effective/efficient application of the skills being taught.

Whether you’re looking to celebrate a special anniversary, a deep relationship, a birthday – or just to take some time out and have fun, this is a great way to spend a warm, comfortable afternoon.

(PS: I have all the required certificates: First Aid, Police Check, and Indemnity Insurances for Teaching and Practice.)
