Natural Awakenings Boston

Classes in Self-Massage and Do-It-Yourself Spa Treatments

Jul 25, 2014 12:22PM

The Nurturing Well is a new program for interactive community workshops in an informal, residential setting. Activities include a self-massage series and Sisters Are Doin’ it for Themselves classes, in which friends can learn to do spa treatments for each other.

The program was created by Rezakkah Norins, a massage therapist with 30 years of experience. “The purpose of The Nurturing Well is to teach people good massage and body treatment skills, encourage their sense of comfort in touching and being nurturing to others, and create a community in which people feel comfortable sharing physical touch in a non-sexual environment,” she says. The Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves three-part series includes a Facelift Massage, Body Polish and Treat Your Feet class. The series accommodates six pairs of friends, and those interested can register online at and pay the $50 fee in advance.

The Self-Massage series includes seven classes that teach specific massage and movement techniques to relieve tension. Signing up for the entire series is not required, but Norins recommends that participants take several classes for the greatest benefit. Norins also offers training in Nuance Bodywork, which follows the body’s natural movements and responses to the senses, along with internal, spontaneous impulses to move and stretch. The next round of classes at The Nurturing Well will take place in September, October and November.
