Partnered Thai Massage Workshop | June 1st

Partnered Thai Massage Workshop | June 1st

Join  Marta Dwaihy LMT, for a special partner Thai Massage workshop for beginners. This class is not intended to be exclusive for romantic partners. Bring a partner, friend, or family member! Each partner will give AND receive a 30 minute massage sequence that they can learn and take home to practice on family and friends.  Thai Massage is a practice done on the floor. Participants need to be able to kneel/lunge comfortably on the floor for at least 30 minutes.


Saturday, June 1st from 1:30-3:30 at Bloodroot Herb Shop in the basement class room (accessible by stairs only). We will have a HEPA filter running. Masks are welcomed but not required.


This class is offered on a sliding scale of $60-$80 per couple. Please email "marta.dwaihy@gmail.com" to reserve your spot. Space is very limited! No refunds for cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice.


WHAT TO BRING/EXPECT:

  • A partner!
  • Each person should bring a yoga/exercise mat topped with a thick blanket/sleeping bag/comforter. Combined with your partner's set up, it should create a comfortable surface consisting of two mats side by side as the base and topped with two thick blankets. If you have sensitive knees, it can also be nice to have an extra cushion to kneel on like a garden knee pad or folded yoga blanket.
  • Thai massage is done fully clothed. Come wearing comfortable loose fitting clothing. Tight sport leggings are not ideal because they're slippery and don't allow for optimal traction during compressions. Come with clean feet or a fresh pair of socks.
  • Water bottle and snack can always be a good idea too!
