Yomassage was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to therapeutic touch. In order to make this happen, Yomassage Founders, Tiffany Ryan and Katherine Parker, created a modality in which clients can receive touch in a small group setting. In addition to offering massage at an accessible rate, Yomassage sessions appeal to more people because they are fully clothed and offered in a safe environment.
The “Yo” in Yomassage is based on the principles of yoga: focus on the breath (pranayama) and the yogic philosophy of looking within. The combination of touch, gentle stretch, and mindfulness provide an avenue for relaxation and healing.
Yomassage Therapists are trained to make sure everyone feels comfortable and welcome throughout the entire session. When you walk in the room, you will be greeted with warm smiles. Your therapist will walk you through a series of comfortable and supported Yomassage positions that will be held for 5-10 minutes. While you are relaxing in these positions, your therapist will guide you through breath work and mindfulness exercises as they walk around and massage you in each position. You will end the session having received a full body massage, and feeling a state of ultimate relaxation.
Yomassage sessions are kept small so each client receives individual attention from their therapist. One therapist can serve up to 5 clients in a single session, and up to 10 clients if they have an assistant. Clients can expect a warm room with mood lighting and soft music. Everything will be provided for you, so there is no need to bring anything. Yomassage sessions are suitable for all levels, no experience required.
Sessions range from 60-90 minutes, and are kept small with a limit of 5 clients. With this small group environment it allows for each session to be custom created for the clients attending as well as allowing for plenty of hands on massage time.
The Yomassage therapist will massage and adjust you in every pose. These techniques are highly relaxing to the nervous system and can improve range of motion, increase flexibility of connective tissue and reduce compression of joint surfaces.
