Communication Through Touch- Level 1
During the “Communication Through Touch level 1” seminar you and your partner will be lead through an exploration of the mind/body connection, various communication skills and exercises in massage techniques.
The mind/body connection is a concept that states our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning. In other words, our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are. We employ the mind/body connection as a platform to construct a foundation for a profound connection between partners. Who better to assist you managing both providing comfort and alleviating your aches and pains?
The communication skills that will be developed throughout the course of this seminar will help enrich various aspects of your relationship. The ability to communicate effectively will not only enable you to give a great massage but will also help you to relate to your partner in a deep and profound way. The massage techniques are presented in a simple format that will allow even the most inexperienced person to render a relaxing massage.

Frequently Asked Questions
What will we need to bring?
You will need to bring:
- very loose fitting, comfortable clothes that are easily transitioned in and out of
- wear biking shorts if you are especially shy
- a bottle of water for each of you (Leave your caffeinated beverages at home, it’s time to relax.)
- massage lotion/oil (This only pertains to individuals that have especially sensitive skin. Please bring unscented lotion or oils, as not to disturb others.)
- hair ties/clips for long hair
Will the massage be sexual?
Touch, especially sustained and focused touch, is intimate by nature and can be sensual. We believe that the complete and non-sensual nature of this workshop can greatly benefit any couple’s sex life, but this is beyond the scope of the workshop and our facilitators. The massage techniques covered during this course are therapeutic in nature and non-sexual.
Will my body be exposed to the other participants?
Professional draping standards will be taught used at all times. Your partner will only undrape the area where they are working.
Will there be time to ask questions and get personalized help with the hands-on portion?
You can be sure that all your questions will be answered. The agenda allows for everyone to receive the personalized attention as you navigate your way through these powerful tools.
