Hills Massage presents Yomassage
Michelle used the lock-down time wisely to find new and innovative ways of bringing massage to our clients.
Our Yomassage class is a fusion of restorative yoga positions enhanced with therapeutic touch by a remedial massage therapist (Michelle). Clients relax in these positions on a mat for up 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. 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.
We will be conducting 2 classes a week 90 minutes in duration at Yoga Centred – which is just across the hall from us.
