We are a massage exchange group.  Members can be licensed massage therapists or just individuals that have an interest in giving and receiving massage.  However, we are not set up to teach massage to those with no prior experience.  The emphasis is on trades between people that already know how to give a massage.

I will be hosting a meeting about once a month at my home in SW Austin.  I am a licensed massage therapist and I run a private practice out of my home, but I hope this group can be more about people that just love to give and receive massage.   A mix of licensed therapists that want to share their knowledge, and people that just enjoy trading massage with friends.

I'd like to keep it casual and put the emphasis on learning by trading.  There is no better way to improve your massage skills than to give and receive a massage... so that you get immediate feedback about how something feels.. both when you give it and when you receive it. Even with licensed therapists, trading is the perfect way to practice or experiment with new techniques.  You might even learn something fabulous from that person that is just good with their hands but has had no formal training.  And it feels good too

Here is a link to the web page for my massage business. (  www.massageinthehillcountry.com  ) It has pictures of my outdoor massage area and directions for how to get here.  The outdoor area is very private (on 6 acres of land) so the hot tub is typically clothing optional and draping for the massage is also optional.  For the group meetings, we will discuss that and see if everyone is OK with it.  Personal boundaries will be respected and nudity restricted if it makes anyone uncomfortable.

I would also like to be clear that this group is NOT about any type of sexual or erotic massage.  There are groups for that, and I'm fine with it, but that is not the purpose of THIS group.

If you are interested, join the group and come give us a try.
