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.
We will be hosting a meeting about twice a month, one in south Austin and another in north Austin. We hope this group can be more about people that just love to share the healing power of massage. A mix of licensed therapists that want to share their knowledge, and people that just enjoy trading massage with friends.
We 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
We always encourage draping to maintain a comfort level for all. For the group meetings, we will discuss anything that anyone has questions on or an interest in. Personal boundaries will be respected and nudity restricted if it makes anyone uncomfortable. We are open to learning all healing modalities.
We would also like to be clear that this group is NOT about any type of sexual or erotic massage. There are groups for that, but that is not the purpose of THIS group.
If you are interested, join the group and come give us a try.
