Teach to Touch
In today’s fast paced, on-line and increasingly virtual world, one of the most precious gifts one person can give to another is time, and the emotionally and physically healing gift of touch.That was one of the factors that lead me to giving up a successful career in IT, the desire to reconnect with the most fundamental and important aspects of our humanity, touch, time and connection, that philosophy is reinforced every day I do this job,
In my years of being a masseur, one of the most rewarding aspects of my job is to properly connect with my clients body using my sense of touch and a deep love for what I do, I am always so humbled and delighted to observe and share with my clients the genuine sense of well being and relaxation that they feel at the end of a treatment, it is a gift for both the giver and receiver of the massage.
Why not share this gift with couples…?
This is the thought process that has let me to introduce “Teach to Touch”.
Teach to touch is a massage designed to teach people how to properly connect with another person through touch.
It doesn’t matter if you are a couple who have been together for a few months or many years or friends who want to learn and practice this art on each other and others, Teach to Touch will teach you how to deeply connect with another persons body through your hands, how to marvel at the wonder of the human body and how to find or rediscover your innate gift of connection with others.
During a Teach to Touch treatment, I will teach both people how to give and how to receive massage touch.
For the receiver of the massage; they will experience the sense of pleasure and relaxation of a four handed massage as it will be both me and your partner massaging you.
For the partner giving the massage, I will will teach you, leading by example and by gently guiding you how to connect with and “listen” to a body, using your innate sense of touch, I will show you how to still your mind and how to connect deeply with your partner so that you will almost feel as one.
A Teach to touch session will provide a welcoming, warm, fun and relaxed environment for you to fully relax and enjoy the experience.
Both Partners will be given equal opportunity to both give and receive massage while being massaged and instructed by me.
One of the most important things about a Teach to touch appointment is that it will in no way feel rushed, a booking is 3,5 hours long and both partners can expect to receive at least 90 minutes worth of massage each.
Appointments slots can be booked for either a morning, early afternoon or early evening session or a Saturday morning.
You can contact me directly to arrange a booking and for me to answer any questions you may have.

Different types of massage
Typically, massage practitioners use either oil or talcum powder to allow their hands to slip over a person’s skin. Sometimes, a sheet or thin piece of cloth might be used for the same effect.
Different types of massage may include:
- – involves the assessment and treatment of soft tissue pain, injury and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility. Myotherapy is applied to restore and maintain the health and function of the soft tissue structure (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the human body
- remedial – is the objective assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the signs, symptoms and causes of biomechanical dysfunction or injury, using specific mobilisation techniques, in order to restore normal health and function
- therapeutic – also known as ‘Western’ or ‘Swedish’ massage. One of the most popular forms of massage in Australia, this technique is designed to promote relaxation and improve blood circulation
- lymphatic drainage – a gentle whole body treatment which relaxes the nervous system and aids the body’s immune system
- aromatherapy – essential oils made from selected flowers and plants are added to the massage oil for their particular therapeutic properties. For example, the scent of sandalwood is thought to reduce nervous tension
- baby massage – can help to treat constipation, colic and sleeping problems. Studies have found that regular massage helps premature babies to gain weight at a faster rate
- reflexology – based on the principle that certain parts of the body reflect the whole. Reflex points, which relate to all parts of the body, can be found in the feet, hands, face and ears. These points respond to pressure, stimulating the body’s own natural healing process
- shiatsu – an oriental massage technique that aims to improve energy flow by working certain points on the body. The underlying principles of shiatsu massage are similar to those of acupuncture
- sports – this is an application of massage, not a particular massage technique. The type of technique or treatment applied is dependent on the nature of the stage of training or competition, sports injury or condition and the assessment of the remedial massage therapist. Sport massage is a blend of techniques that aim to enhance performance and help overworked muscles to recover quickly.
