I am developing a couples massage course for my massage practice. I working on determining format, number of hours, and how much is should cost. Secondary issue I am pondering is if I should make it a group experience (multiple couples) or maintain privacy by working with one couple at a time.
Are there any folks in this group that teach couples massage? I would love some input on how you structure your classes and what you charge for your time.
This post is sooooo old, but I would love to hear what you ended up doing! We have taught couples classes for 11 years. We do both group classes and private instruction. Our group classes we do for $75 per couple, 3 hours, on mats on the floor, keep everyone dressed and ask them to wear shorts and a T-shirt...very stretchy and comfortable. We have handouts and include a copy of our Couples Massage video download for them to use at home. When we do a private instruction, we do it on the table in the room, and charge our normal massage rate...usually 2.5 hours. We've had people drive as much as an hour away to come to us for couples massage classes, since so few MTs market it.
We also have an ebook on our site: http://www.professionalmassagenetwork.com/teach-couples-massage.html Our Couples Massage Video is set up either as wholesale or affliate for MTs. It's nonsexual and demonstrated on the floor, so even couples who don't have tables can use it!
