We offer couples massage workshops and classes for couples and therapists. Marcela’s couples massage workshop focuses on helping couples learn about therapeutic touch and how to incorporate it into a relaxing massage and loving the process! Alisa offers a class to therapists on specialized couples massage techniques she developed for one therapist to administer to both partners at the same time. During this class you learn how to use your body and simple equipment to offer competitive client experience while leveraging your income.

Couples Massage for Couples


Marcela designed this workshop to answer two important problems that couples face when offering massage to one another. First ofcourse she addresses the question of proper technique. Marcela’s philosophy is watch , feel and do.

She demonstrates various massage sequences on each partner while the other one watches. Each partner takes turns practicing and giving feedback. Marcela also addresses the problem of lack of desire to give. Plenty of partners enjoy receiving but many will find reasons why not to give! Its common and happens because the giver thinks of it as work.

However, Marcela help redefine the meaning of mutual massage. A few minutes of quality pressure done regularly goes a long way in relieving stress for both partners. Nothing says I love you quite like loving healing touch. Marcela provides tips on how to use body weight rather than muscle force, which helps transform daggers and stones into fluid fingers and palms to save energy while giving a much more therapeutic and relaxing massage.

Marcela will also touch on how to pick scents, lotion vs oil, and create a massage setting quickly for a romantic or relaxing effect. Your partner will fall in love with you all over again!
