DIY Massage - Bringing Massage Into Daily Life
February 16, 2019 2:30-5:30pm
Hark House, 180 Main Street, Biddeford
Learn to massage another human for pain relief and relaxation while avoiding hurting yourself or losing steam after 3 minutes.
The workshop information will be focused on partner trades, but will also cover some self-massage techniques. Each of the following segments is interactive and you’ll go home with handouts to help you remember your new tools.
* Embodiment - feeling and being in your own body
* Safe intimacy - setting, practicing, and respecting physical and emotional boundaries
* Anatomy & Physiology - basic understanding of how muscles work and where they are
* Massage technique - how to use your body to sustainably provide relief and relaxation for a friend or partner.
This workshop will focus on common upper body tension areas including shoulders, neck, and hands.
Participants may come alone or as a pair (or group!). We will facilitate a safe space where consent is key in all touch. If you would rather not be touched by a stranger under any circumstances, we recommend bringing your own partner, which could be a friend, family member or romantic partner.
Online registration is available here, but if you'd prefer to pay us in person, you may send a check to Hark House, 180 Main Street, Biddeford, ME 04005. Make sure to include a note indicating your name, contact information and that you'd like to attend. We will confirm your attendance before the event and before depositing the check.
