This is an excellent lesson in combining body mind and spirit.I had a ball! The icebreaker was an excellent idea. I look at this class as a lecture,and a lab,both very helpful and informative.

Joseph Reo did a fabulous job of teaching and reinforcing basic massage techniques for shoulders and arms, hands, and scalp. Excellent class to take with or without a partner to learn how to provide a better massage to anyone.

Description

How many times have you wished that you could snap your fingers and your own private masseuse would appear out of nowhere to magically get that kink out of your neck or reduce your stress headache? If you attend tonight’s seminar, you’ll be on your way to enjoying the benefits of massage, either by giving one or receiving one .. hopefully more of the latter. Massage is a nice present to share with anyone who you think is deserving, whether it be a work colleague, your dry cleaner or someone you would like to know better.

Massage is the ancient technique of manipulating the muscles and soft tissues of the body for pain relief and relaxation. You will actually learn and practice basic massage techniques on the neck, shoulders, hands and scalp. You will also receive an overview of the role of massage in modern health care for reducing stress and easing chronic pain conditions. No oils or creams are necessary — wear loose, comfortable clothing.
