Yomassage® is the ultimate relaxation experience, and was created to make therapeutic touch accessible to everyone. With Yomassage®, clients can receive hands-on massage therapy in a small group environment (max of 5 per class), fully clothed, while relaxing in restorative positions and practicing mindfulness. The luxurious, small group setting creates a safe and welcoming environment, while costing less than a regular massage, and providing the additional benefits of stretch, mindfulness, and community.
What do Yomassage® classes look like? Yomassage® spaces are warm and welcoming, with soft lighting and relaxing music. You will be greeted by your Therapist (who is a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Yomassage® Therapist) and invited to sit at a station that is set up and ready for you. You should always arrive at least 15 minutes early, as the doors lock 10 minutes prior to class to allow everyone time to settle and start on time. Classes open with mindfulness, allowing participants to let go of their day, focus on the present moment, and prepare their minds and bodies for deep relaxation. The “Yo” in Yomassage® is based on the principles of yoga, which is the focus on the breath and the philosophy of looking within, and these create the foundation for each class. Next, participants are guided through a series of restorative, gentle stretches, each lasting 5-10 minutes. Once everyone is comfortable, the therapist tells the class which part of the body will be massaged in the current position, and proceeds to provide hands-on massage for each person. Following the final relaxation position, participants are guided through a closing meditation, and gently invited to carry on with their day. By the end of class, each participant has received at least 15-20 minutes of hands-on massage, and will float away in their post-massage bliss. Click HERE to preview a class!
