The certified instructors at Potomac Massage Training Institute impart bodywork secrets in a monthly schedule of couples classes and day-long workshops. Pairs trade turns practicing and receiving Swedish-massage techniques in the couples-massage classes. Teachers emphasize awareness of significant others’ comfort so that the gentle circular motions soothe partners’ muscles instead of just tracing Pac-Man tattoos on their back. In the day-long Touch of Massage workshops, instructors explain and explore the relaxing and rejuvenating breadth of effects massage can have. Touch of Massage workshops last six hours, with an hour-long break in the middle for lunch. Students will program their palms to knead aches and pains from backs and necks, soothe weathered feet and hands, and warm up stiff faces fresh from cryogenic stasis. The nonprofit massage school takes pride in every professional therapist it has trained since first opening its doors 34 years ago.
