What is YoMassage - Our Australian First Service
Our Yomassage class is a fusion of restorative yoga positions (like Yin Yoga) enhanced with therapeutic touch by a remedial massage therapist (Michelle). Clients relax in these positions on a mat between 8 to 10 minutes while the therapist performs therapeutic massage techniques to deepen the practice of Yoga.
Michelle undertook the intense 3-week training course that is ONLY available to Remedial Massage Therapists or allied health practitioners. Michelle received Honors in the course and as such we are the FIRST to bring Yomassage to Australia. Yomassage originated out of Portland, Oregon founded by Dr Tiffany Ryan and Katherine Parker.
Yomassage was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to therapeutic touch.
In addition to offering massage at an affordable rate, Yomassage classes appeal to more people because they are fully clothed, and the class is offered in a safe environment with Yoga props such as a mat, bolsters, blocks and blankets.
The Ýo’ in Yomassage is based on the principle of Yoga: focus on the breath and the yogic philosophy of looking within. The combination of touch, gentle stretch and mindfulness provide an avenue for relaxation and healing.
Yomassage classes are kept small so each client receives individual attention from their therapist. One therapist can serve up to 5 clients in a single session, and up to 10 clients if they have an assistant. We have been running the classes for a couple of weeks now and with every new project we have ‘tweaked ‘it a bit to make the experience even more enjoyable by changing class numbers.
Sundays will be 1 therapist to 4 clients
Mondays and Thursdays, we will be adding a Supporter, so class size will be 6 people, but 2 therapists to do the massage.
Clients can expect a warm room with mood lighting and soft music. Everything will be provided for you, so there is no need to bring anything. Yomassage classes are suitable for all levels, no experience required.
We have of course included all necessary COVID safety precautions.
