On 20th March Kea School near Truro held their annual Pamper Evening where therapists and various shops and beauticians can have a stall. This year Vicky Heffer from the Kea School fundraisers contacted me to ask if I would take part. The purpose is to raise funds towards the cost of a new building extension. I immediately agreed.
We planned to have eight 15-minute sessions where people could sample the treatment, and, because the massage is delivered fully clothed, others could watch and learn about Thai Yoga Massage at the same time. Each 15-minute slot would donate £5.00 to the school funds.
I am pleased to say that not only did we fill the 8 slots, once the audience saw understood what I was doing we had to turn people away! Really sorry to those who missed out, but it had to be strictly first come, first served, and six people had already booked in advance.
Of course, it's not possibe to do a full treatment in 15 minutes, but for me it was a great opportunity to quietly diagnose where each person had a slight tension or problem and try to do something to help. This meant that each "treatment" was different and made for more interesting viewing for the passing audience.
For me it was a great success. I raised £40 for the school and showed a large number of people who had never seen it before what Thai Yoga Massage is.
Many thanks to everyone who came to support the event, to those people who tried my massage and thereby contributed to the school funds, and thanks to Vicky and Kea School for inviting me. I hope we can do it again some time.
