Workshop — The Magic of Touch

Hands touching
Past participants have said:

“I felt a strong surge of support and kinship with all of my group. While previously I had been jumpy and displaced, once I was receiving I felt like I found myself.”

“I experienced a deepening connection to my body and my own inhabiting of my body through the touch of the other people in my group.”

What is it that makes great massage so great? Underneath any technique is the simple power of the magic of touch.

Alive in everyone, accessible to anyone, come learn to create magic with your own hands through experiential exercises with massage therapists Pamela Rosin and Joshua Alexander.

This workshop is for all skill levels, but is specifically designed for people with no professional bodywork training. Even if you’ve never even given a shoulder rub, this workshop is for you!

[The unwinding] “was an incredible experience, and the results have been extraordinary. It's 30 hours since the experience and I've been completely pain-free, for the first time in more than 6 months. And, at the moment at least, I'm able to move my arm in directions I haven't been able to move it, at least not without pain, in a long time.” – Yelp review
