Students hold each position for around 8-10 minutes while a massage therapist performs manual massage techniques. The classes are limited to 5 participants per class and lasts for approximately 90 minutes.
Benefits of Yomassage™ include improved joint range of motion, increased extensibility of muscle tendons and periarticular connective tissue, improved neuromuscular balance between muscle groups, reduce compression on joint surfaces, and reduced injuries. Yomassage™ classes are led by Dolores J. Gozzi, a Licensed Massage/ Alternative Therapist (MA37360), who has completed a 16-hour Yomassage™ certification.
