Alvina Quatrano

Alvina Quatrano

Licensed Massage Therapist and veteran teacher Alvina Quatrano will lead a Couples Massage class from 5 to 8 p.m., November 2, and a Meaningful Touch class at the same time on January 2. The Couples Class includes a Meaningful Touch review, a massage routine and practice with oils, setting the stage for massage with partners and to have it reciprocated with the assistance of Quatrano, who will perform the massage with participants and provide a manual, anecdotal examples and personalized practice that can be continued at home.

Meaningful Touch is based on work by Dr. Frederick Fritz Smith. who founded The Zero Balancing Health Association and his concept of “interface”, which is a respectful and a boundary-aware type of touch that is also taught in Art of Holistic Massage and Soul Lightening International Acupressure classes. Types and the criteria for touch are discovered and an understanding of the body’s energy system of chakras and meridians is also presented.

Quatrano says that learning Meaningful Touch is the first step to applying skills of massage, assisting yoga classes, nursing, doctoring (palpating), friending, parenting and coupling.
