Our Intensive Bodywork Trainings introduce students to our completely unique from of massage & healing.

These trainings offer students an alchemy of techniques gathered & mastered by Tapesh Paradiso over decades of study & professional experience in both Eastern & Western lineages of healing. His work is accentuated by the presence of Anouk Devi, who brings her own flavor of mastery to this practice, and offers ongoing anatomical clarification to compliment these distinct techniques.

  • "To participate in the Alchemy of Touch Massage Training has been a really special experience.
    I love Tapesh's teaching style and the way he shares from the heart and from his own experiences.
    I have some years of working experience as a bodyworker, but i never saw, understood that a great benefit can come from such an easy and effortless touch. I feel that whole body just melts, leaving no space for pain and tension remaining in the body, by combining several touches into one. I was never really satisfied with classical deep tissues and myofacial release, now I see how it can be modified and integrated
    into something rich and beautiful. Fluid Touch showed me how to be playful and it offers a great potential when it comes to improvising and responding to the specific needs of a specific body client. I also understand better what role the nervous system plays when it comes to opening up and releasing muscles. I had lots of fun in the course and I learnt a lot!"
