Emy’s massage workshops are creative explorations that encourage our capacity to give and receive goodness. They mix knowledge, practical skills, passion, curiosity, rely on group intelligence, and can be real transformative experiences.
The Stones That Teach Massage
A poetic initiation to touch, intuition and intention in massage, where stones picked up from the country guide our anatomical discoveries and sensory experiences. What will they teach us ?
The Body as a Landscape (massage as a promenade)
In this favorite workshop Emy uses analogies with nature to share some fundamentals of massage. Observe the landscape of the body, find your way, create paths, know when to pause at a remarkable point of view… Massage becomes as easy as walking and a rejuvenating experience for everyone, similar to a nice hike !
This workshop is in two parts :The Hills and Valley of the Back and The Abdomen and the Aquatic Worlds
In information and communication technology, the “handshake” is the process by which two devices establish a connection before they start to communicate. Emy so named an illustrated manual for hands massage which she wrote with the collective Hacking with Care. The manual is available for printing and sharing freely as a zine ! In the workshop, Emy guides you through a selection of best moves from the manual. This handshake is perfect for fortifying your bones, your friendships, and expressing your solidarity !
Monkey Mind Massage
Emy shares easy head and face massage moves. Together in a sequence they make for a lovely treat she likes to call the Monkey Mind Massage, perfect to calm restless, hyperactive minds, and maybe… fall asleep Z Z Z Z. Emy and her friends from Hacking with Care created an illustrated manual for the MMM , available as a postcard set !
Observe – Hack – Massage
In this workshop, Hackers ethics, curiosity and ingenuity are applied to the learning and sharing of massages. How are you going to solve, and dissolve, that discomfort you’re feeling ? First you’ll have to observe… Then ? Piece of cake/care 🙂
