Valentine’s Event: How to 

Massage Your Partner

(and enjoy it yourself!)

Touch is a form of Communication

Valentine’s Day is coming soon, and we’ve been searching for something special to offer you! After we came back sore from a recent skiing trip, it became obvious: Giving nourishing touch and massage to one another is one of life’s greatest pleasures. It’s a sure way to connect you with your partner, and it can often lead to more (wink, wink).

So, join us for a Valentine’s gift that you can use all year long!

Date & time: Sunday, February 15, 2015, 12:30 PM to 5:30 PM

Location: The Pad Studios: 1690 Union St., San Francisco, CA

Cost: $150 per couple or $270 for 2 couples.

If we’ve learned anything from years of practicing body-mind approaches to healing and growth, it’s that touch isn’t just about having the right technique. Touch is a form of communication, and probably one of the most powerful ones when it comes to relationship. Whether it’s a passing affectionate touch, a kiss, or sensual lovemaking, it’s all about being present in your body, and attuned to your partner.

In this workshop, you will discover:

  • Different types of touch (your intention can make a difference…)
  • How to be mindful and present when you’re touching your partner (what we call “heartfelt touch”)
  • And, of course, techniques for a fantastic couples massage! (Yes, on a real massage table…)
The workshop will be guided by Gal & Liron in collaboration with The Love Lab, a trusted and well-known organization for teaching couples massage. We only have space for 13 couples so register early! Also, we would like to you come with your friends, so if you buy a ticket for another couple you’ll get a discount.
If all of this is not reason enough to come, did we mention that Champagne, cheese, and light snacks are included?
NOTE: You’ll be fully clothed at this event. You can expose your back when you’re getting a back massage—but this will be discrete, and you’ll be covered with a sheet the whole time.

If you are interested in coming but can’t afford it contact us and let us know about you. Depending on space availability we might be able to offer partial scholarships.

I believe Gal’s workshop not only can help us build a better marriage, it may change our life. Thank you, Gal!” — Charles C.
