Yomassage™ by Balanced Wellness Works
Yomassage was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to

and welcome throughout the entire class. When you walk in the room, you
will be greeted with warm smiles. Your therapist will walk you through a
series of comfortable and supported Yomassage positions that will be

Yomassage classes are kept small so each client receives individual attention from their therapist. One therapist can serve up to 5 clients in a single session, and up to 10 clients if they have an assistant. Clients can expect a warm room with mood lighting and soft music. Everything will be provided for you, so there is no need to bring anything. Yomassage classes are suitable for all levels, no experience required.
All Yomassage™ classes are lead by appropriately licensed professionals who have completed a 16-hour Yomassage™ certification.
