What do I need to bring?

We will send an itinerary prior to each class, giving you any specifics for the class. At the class we will provide a handout and will have massage tables set up. We will supply lotion, but you may use your own scent-free lotion.

BRING a fingernail file, a bath towel, and a pen and paper. If you would like a blanket or pillow, please bring your own. If you would like to have a water bottle with you during class, please bring one.

We suggest wearing loose, layered clothes to class so that you will find your own comfort level with the temperature in the classroom.
