The power of touch

In an instant, touch can completely change the way that you feel.


A single touch can be: instructive, soothing, sensual,

an invitation, a signal, a warning. Skillful touch can foster safety and trust, and help you be more you. 

If you have ever secretly wished your roommates knew how to massage you just the way you liked, bring them to this workshop.

The Touch Lab is a place where you get to experiment and experience intuitive massage at its best. 

In this workshop you will:

  • learn something about yourself & your partner

  • be given options and ways to explore bodywork that is safe, playful & feels good 

  • learn a series of attuned & embodied listening tools

  • experience deep relaxation

  • take home simple tools to practice 


This unique workshop is perfect for people who; are craving touch, want to learn new ways to give touch that also feels good in your own body, want to develop better listening skills and learn how to ask for the kind of touch you want. Before you know it, you may find that intuitive massage becomes a part of your lifestyle with a few minutes in the kitchen, or lazing on the couch.
