At ABQ School of Massage Therapy and ABQ Massage Clinic, couples can hit the tables while the hands of licensed and experienced therapists soothe bodies and minds or hone their muscle-molding skills in massage courses. In one-hour massages, which take place in the clinic, professional and licensed therapists cater to duos with full-body massages that aim to foster better sleep and pudding impersonations. Patrons relax as hands wander across backs and give personalized attention to problem areas and cater to clients’ preferred levels of pressure.
The three-hour class provides enough time to master a fundamental, full-body approach to massage. Instructors’ easy-to-follow directions make it simple for kneading neophytes to induce tranquility and avoid the heavy-handedness that can cause fingers to quit in exhausted protest. Both participants get a chance to test their knuckles, palms, and fingertips, and serve as human guinea pigs for their partner’s practice. Though teachers design the classes for couples, platonic pairs are welcome to join and use the power of professional massage to strengthen friendships threatened by pets or loyal houseplants.
