Shiatsu Massage Workshop
The HUB Rotterdam
Heemraadsingel 219, 3023 CD Rotterdam
Wednesday 4 November

19.00 – 22.00, €10 hub members €35 non hub members

Learn to give a simple but effective massage for friends, family or colleagues…

A skills sharing initiative, offered at minimal cost to facilitate massage swaps in The Hub environment.

During this workshop you will both give and receive a massage with others in the group. That’s right… You get to receive a massage too! The techniques taught are based on shiatsu therapy and are done through clothing (so you will not need to get undressed). We will be focusing on learning to feel what is happening under our hands and then how to work with that to relieve tension and stress.

You will also learn when massage is appropriate and when it is not, and a few pressure points on the body that can be used to help prevent RSI, neck and shoulder tension and headaches. This versatile massage can be done anywhere at anytime, all that is needed is a friend and quiet place!

Your teacher is Sophia van Ruth, a shiatsu and massage therapist from Australia. Sophia has 10 years experience as a therapist and 3½ years experience teaching both massage and shiatsu at a professional training college in Sydney, Australia.
