introducing massage workshops
Written by Amelia
over the past two decades we have established not only an award-winning day spa, but an oasis of wellbeing.
Now, as part of our ‘Education’ offering, we’ve created a series of six Massage Workshops to share some of our wellness insights with the community.
Starting in February we’ll be hosting interactive, enriching explorations of massage techniques and ancient wellbeing practices in our Wellness Centre. These workshops will unfold one Saturday afternoon per month until the middle of winter.
From muscle release and reflexology to head and facial massage, these sumptuous sessions allow you to immerse yourself in a world of wellness while learning new skills.
The workshops are designed to be booked in pairs, so you can connect with a friend, partner or family member as you cultivate the art of massage.
what to expect
Beginning in the late afternoon, you will be guided through the focus of the session from an expert facilitator. Then, as the sun begins to drop, graze on a selection of cheeses, dips, olives, pita bread, quince paste and lavosh crackers before submerging yourself in our geothermal pools with twilight bathing.
You’ll be able to take your skills beyond the workshop and be empowered to practise on yourself or your loved ones at home, or even enhance your professional offering.
Each workshop has a unique theme, and the six workshops are grouped in twos with similar topics: “Massage for reduced stress and better sleep”, “Facial renewal workshops” and “Ayurvedic workshops”. Those wanting to deepen their knowledge in a particular area might like to book both workshops on that topic.
This activity is beautifully suited to couples, friends or relatives looking to reconnect in a relaxed environment, and can be booked by private groups for hens events, team-building afternoons or special occasions such as Mother’s Day.
