"My husband and I attended the Couples Massage course at
The Happiness Centre as a part of our Valentines celebration. During the course
we were taken through basic massaging techniques including learning
how to massage each other's face, feet and back.

... We were able to observe the instructors and apply techniques
to each other while also having a personal experience as a couple.

At the end of the course we received a written summary of the massage techniques
we had learned and some lovely presents, including massage and essential oils,
handmade chocolates and candles! We have found the course to be very useful and have been using the skills to give massages to each other at home. We have even bought a real massage table to take our skills to the next level. The course was a fantastic way to start our Valentine's weekend.

"Quick feedback is that it was a great course. Instructor was reallygood - competent and had a nice style. Also, liked to the dimension around opening heart and communication.


"Myself and my partner absolutely loved the massage course and yes we practised that weekend and we're going to again tomorrow! We initially went for the course as we both suffer from tense muscles, back ache etc and wanted to be able to help each other more at home when this happens. However one of the biggest things I took away was the connection between us. It was a side I hadn't really thought of but we definitely felt closer and our teacher really made us think about why we were together, this really benefited us when performing the massage as it was easier to read each other.

Our teacher was lovely .... friendly, informative and helpful without being overbearing or awkward. It actually made us relax into it a lot more. I would definitely do something like this again.

Spaces limited to 10 participants (up to 5 couples) for this fun learning experience!


During the course, you will learn how to warm up the body and get the circulation going, to relax both the muscles and the mind. Therapeutic strokes encourage the deeper muscle tissues to release built-up tension, stress and toxins, thus enabling deeper relaxation. You will learn about appropriate posture and suitable weight distribution (learn correct shiatsu posture techniques when giving the massage, to minimise over-stretching or back strain) which will aid the comfort of the person giving the massage, making it an enjoyable experience for both!

Focusing mainly on the scalp, face, back and feet.

Each couple has their own massage table, for practising the techniques as you learn. Participants can be fully-clothed, although most people happily remove their tops once lying face-down in your own massage table. Towels are supplied, when lying face-up for women. It is a very comfortable and fun environment...learning in a light-hearted way!

Instructional techniques are completed as a group, then you practice the techniques on your partner. Instructional Handouts provided.

You will learn about:

  • acupressure points
  • breathing techniques
  • relaxing strokes
  • deep tissue techniques
  • techniques for breaking down knots
  • correct postures when giving massage
  • correct use of aromatherapy oils

Each participant also receives FREE GIFT of Massage Oil to take home, along with a delicious chocolate treat, courtesy of The Happiness Centre.

Don't be shy!

Come and have fun, learn something new!

WHAT TO WEAR: Comfortable clothes to move about it, such as tracksuit pants and a cotton t-shirt or singlet.
