Kind words from learners…

My partner and I really enjoyed the couple’s massage lesson – Devon is a great teacher! Everything was very clearly communicated at every stage, from booking right through to the post-lesson handbook. We learned a lot in a short space of time, and Devon personalised the tips and techniques based on our preferences which was fantastic. She made sure that we felt comfortable from start to finish, and went through everything clearly and thoroughly with plenty of guidance. We left both relaxed and confident that we can do it ourselves at home – highly recommended!

Devon was brilliant! My boyfriend and I didn’t know what to expect from the session but she quickly put us at ease with her friendliness and professionalism. We both learned a lot and felt very relaxed throughout. A great experience.

Lizzie Longley
(Couples Massage Workshop)

What a wonderful experience from start to finish! Devon was very professional but also very friendly. She certainly knows her stuff. I came away feeling very relaxed but also having learnt a lot! I highly recommend.

What happens in the lesson?
The session is bespoke, meaning at the start I ask each partner what your pain points are (such as tight calves/ stiff neck), as well as your preferences in terms of pressure. Then I design a plan for each of you, so that you can learn each other’s ideal treatment. Learning involves watching me demonstrate a move, then practising it. This process repeats until a full routine is carried out. Longer sessions allow for more ‘revision’ too, ie. repeating things more. I also provide pre-made videos afterwards to use in your home practice.
What’s the difference between a 3 and 2 hour session?
In 3 hours you get more time to learn, receive and practice massage. In 2 hours each partner has around 45 mins to learn a routine.
Why the price difference in the 3 hour session fron Keswick to Penrith?
The Keswick venue option is more expensive because this venue costs more to hire. The Keswick venue is located next to Hope Park, very close to Derwentwater Lakes with stunning views, and Keswick town centre.
What’s the booking and cancellation policy?
Booking T & Cs: Full payment or a 25% deposit in advance is required to book, you can pay for this on the webpage. Any remaining fees are due 14 days before the booking date. There is no possibility of a refund, but you can defer the date of your tutorial and all payments made if you need to up until 7 days in advance. After this time frame, any deferrals made within 7 days will be charged upto 75% of the booking value. If you pay with the session by gift card the same policies apply.
Is there a cheaper option?
If booking a private tutorial just for you and your partner costs too much for you atm, another option is the Introduction to Massage workshop. This is held several times a year in Keswick in the same cosy venue, with a small group number of 6 people maximum. The session content is similar; learning an effective back massage routine. The session is cheaper than a private tutorial and lasts longer too (4 hours). Check out the Introduction to Massage course details on the website.
What happens when I book?
Once you have contacted Devon to arrange a time for your booking, you can pay for the session on the webpage. You will sent a welcome letter within 7 days which contains information on the session and a short health consultation form.
What do I wear?
Clothes which you don’t mind getting oil on! Comfortable such as loose or stretchy clothing is advised. No skirts, low cut tops or tight jeans. In other words, dress as if you are going to an exercise class in a room which isn’t too hot!
Do I need to bring anything?
Water, tea and cake will be provided. Please bring any other snacks or lunch you will need, you are likely to be hungrier than usual as both receiving and giving massage treatments is quite physical.
Is this a romantic experience?
By default, learning how to provide your partner with an awesome massage treatment is romantic, and a great way to treat each other. Relaxing music will be played and candles/ aromatherapy can be used to create a calming environment. Please note that the lesson is not sexual in any way, and any inappropriate comments or actions will result in immediate cancellation of the session without a refund.
Is the massage easy to learn?
Yes! You simply watch one move being carried out, then do it yourself. So there is no need to memorise anything. The teacher is very patient and has worked with a huge range of people with different learning abilities. You will also be provided with videos to help you in your home practice, so no need to remember what you learnt on the day.
