Section 1: Introduction

Hello and welcome to the Learn How to Give an Amazing Amateur Massage Course!

Section 2: Before the Massage

Good communication is vital to a great massage experience. In this lecture, I'll give you some tips on how to effectively communicate with your partner prior to the massage session.

Section 3: The Basics of Massage

The small details can make or break a good massage and how you apply lotion is one of them.


There is a lot of confusion on how to give your partner enough pressure. In this video, I explain the proper way to give the right amount of pressure to your partner.


The initial contact of a massage is important. It sets the tone for the session and can put your partner at ease. In this video, I'll briefly discuss how to make contact and how to transition into a relaxing, soothing scalp massage!

This is a handy document that explains the 4 most basic massage techniques you'll see in this course. It will be good to have on hand when you're viewing the sequences later in the lesson.

Section 4: Watch the Massage Sequence

Before jumping in, watch the video of the sequence you will be performing on your partner. It helps to see the strokes applied in an actual massage session. If you need to, refer to the worksheet with strokes from Section 3.

Section 5: Perform the Massage Sequence

Now it's your turn to perform the massage sequence! This sequence is just to give you an idea of how a massage can go. I encourage you to listen to your partner about what they like and modify your technique to give them the best massage that you can. However, don't hurt yourself trying to accommodate their requests! You should enjoy giving the massage too!

Section 6: Watch the Bonus Massage Sequence

This is another choreographed massage sequence that you can practice with. As you did with the other sequence, I encourage watching it before attempting it.

Section 7: Perform the Bonus Massage Sequence

Your turn to try it! Remember to have fun and listen to your partner as you go along!

Section 8: Wrap_Up

Thank you so much for enrolling in my How to Give an Amazing Amateur Massage course. Keep practicing and I hope you've enjoyed what you've learned!

Instructor Biography

Tranette Williams, Massage Therapist and Instructor

After passing on the traditional "do not collect $200, go directly to college" route, I worked in an office and quickly learned that I wasn't cut out for a desk job.

A year later, I followed my intuition to massage school. I enrolled at the Soma Institute in Chicago right after touring it which was before I had even had a professional massage. (A certain studly massage instructor didn't hurt either.)

It has proven to be the best decision that I've ever made though the hot teacher married his longtime girlfriend and moved to Hawaii. Oh well.

In the subsequent seven years, my career has led me to staff therapist positions at one of Chicago's top spas, schlepping a massage table down Michigan Ave from hotel to hotel, to rubbing down a celebrity or two.

I hope to share my love of massage therapy with couples locally around the world through easy-to-follow classes and workshops. I invite you and your sweetheart to join me and learn how to give better massage, better communication and better loving touch to one another.
