In today's modern culture we live in contexts where many suffer from a lack of connection, intimacy and touch.
On a planet of 7 billion humans we are more disconnected than ever.
As the same time, the ancient art of massage has existed for thousands of years, not only through specific massage traditions but also in our DNA.
We as human beings, have an extraordinary innate and intuitive knowledge and understanding of the body. We know how to cause pain and we know to create pleasure.
This course is about learning how to move past our insecurities and lack of confidence when it comes to massage and unravelling our natural wisdom when it comes to the body.
Of course skill and theory is important but this course is not about that. It is about connecting to yourself as a foundation of connecting with others, about using your own body to understand massage on a deeper level. How to deconstruct our limiting ideas about massage and to look at massage culture as a whole.
Fundamentally this course is not just about learning how to give pleasure but it has a deeper social emphasis of moving from a culture of stress and disconnection to a culture of intimacy, friendship, community and love. Massage is one of the most powerful ways to do this.
I hope you enjoy this course <3
"I loved this course! I found the approach so unique and intuitive, as well as simple to follow. Tissione is a natural teacher - his voice is soothing and calm, his words articulate, and his message empowering and encouraging. I feel much more confident in how I massage as a result of this course."
Deborah Newton, Lawyer, United Kingdom
"This course is very useful even for someone who works professionally with massage, like me. The lessons are taught in a very simple and accessible way and are very deep! It changed completely how I work and now I get a completely different experiences and results. This course taught me important principles about how to humanize my work, not letting it become automatic and numb".
Raphaela Simoes, Massage Therapist and Yoga Instructor, Brazil
"I feel like I've just saved myself a year of time, and a tonne of money. Highly recommend this if you want to learn about massage but don't know where to start."
Niall McKeever, Athlete, Ireland
"An amazing course! I am not aiming to become a professional masseuse, so it was refreshing to bypass any in-detail theory of muscle groups, technique or kinesiology, and actually concentrate on how to give massages to my loved ones that de-stress and feel good! I loved the approach of using meditation and exercises to tune into my own feelings and emotions first to gain a deeper connection to the needs of those that I actually give massages to. Highly recommended!"
Kaisu Koskela, PhD Student, Finland

About The Teacher
Hi I'm Tissione, and welcome to the course!
I created this course because most people in modern society are stressed and in need of genuine connection and touch.
However, I feel frustrated that learning massage is often unnecessarily complicated, costly and time consuming.
But it doesn't have to be that way. My purpose with this course is to show anyone how they can learn quickly and easily what I've spent the past fifteen years working on.
Since a young age I found I had a natural sensitivity and intuition for massage, starting to massage members of my family from as young as 6 years old.
I decided to develop my skills further by learning from various courses, books and teachers, but almost all of them were missing the crucial elements which came naturally to me.
After received hundreds of massages from around the world, I can tell what separates the best massages from the average ones.
I will show you how anyone can reconnect with this natural sensitivity to the body.
For the past 5 years I have spent significant amount of time in Thailand learning about the mind as well as the body, being trained to lead meditation by Buddhist monks, which gave me a deeper understanding of stress and the body.
So this course also integrates the importance of the mind when it comes to massage and the 'internal' states necessary to give incredible and transformational massages. Counter-intuitively, massage hacking is not about learning special techniques and theories - it's about connecting deeply with yourself first.
I look forward to seeing you in the course!
