Event description

Description

Pawed is excited to return to Philly for our new Massage event entitled "Bear Body Touch"!



***Combo tickets for both Bear Yoga and "Bear Body Touch" can be obtain at a separate site accessible here: COMBO ***



Join us for Bear Body Touch (“BTT”) on June 30th from 1:30pm-3:30pm. BTT is a massage event that focuses on meaningful connection. For this afternoon we’ll return to the basics of touch without the formality of the massage table. The event is divided into two parts: (1) guided exercises to connect to your own body as well as to connect to the other men in the room; (2) massage based exchanges using cushions and floor mats.

BTT is a massage event especially for bears, cubs, otters, admirers, etc. It will be an afternoon of connection, touch, relaxation, and healing. Men of all ages, body types, and backgrounds are welcome with open arms. This is a friendly, judgment-free space!

No experience is necessary! Come and be part of a relaxing afternoon.


FAQs

How does this event compare to the prior Bear Massage Trades held in January and April 2018?

There intention of both events are the same: to create an afternoon of connection, touch, relaxation, and healing are two main differences. There are two main differences in format. First, we'll spend more time as a group doing guided connection exercises prior to the actual massage trades to build meaningful connections. Second, the massage trades will be done on cushions and mats instead of massage tables.

Do I need massage skills or experience?

No, not at all! This event is less about technique and more about experiencing the power of human touch and connection. You do not need to know anything about massage...but you may pick up a thing or two at the event!

What do I need to bring?

All you need to do is bring a towel, and a pair of shorts (to change into when you arrive).

Do I need to get naked?

No. The first part of the event is clothed. Once the the Massage Trades begin, guys are welcome to undress to their confort level.

So...What should I expect?

• A brief demo before starting the massage trades.

• The room set up for massage exchanges: massage tables, oils, etc. We will alternative between giving and receiving. Everyone will get a chance to massage and be massaged many times.

• A relaxed, friendly environment. You can be clothed or nude, whatever you're comfortable with. This is a real "judgment-free zone."

Is there another class or event this afternoon?
