"In the late 90's I volunteered with AID Atlanta and offered healing & human touch to our family members who had a (+) status of HIV / AIDS. Sadly, at that time in history, we were still being told that rubber gloves were wise to use on our (HIV+) clients. I never used gloves on any patient at AID Atlanta or elsewhere.
Intuitively I knew that they all needed loving, non-sexual human affection. Skin to skin contact was necessary; they needed to NOT be treated as untouchable or unclean freaks."
Special thanks to the research, connections, professional guidance & personal experience of Ames Simmons, Sean King, LMT, Kari Stauder, LMT & Terri Nelson & other partners in this vision.
Many thanks to the multiple partners within our community who have allowed us to learn from their own experience of how to best serve our family of trans brothers and sisters.

GIVE THE GIFT OF TIME & TOUCH
During COVID times we are spending far too much time on our computers and we often cannot get the bodywork that we need from professionals.
Why not meet each others needs right at home?
~ Learn how to lovingly touch your partner(s) and help them reduce their physical pain while learning new and thoughtful body positions which do not hurt either of you.
~ Learn how to turn your weekly movie time into a massage exchange to relieve neck and shoulder pain and increase your physical and emotional connection with your lover(s).
~ Learn how to massage your partner(s) without hurting
your wrists or back.
~ Learn how intentional and focused touch can change the energy of your connection and can stimulate healing on physical, emotional and sexual levels.
~ Learn how your partner(s) want to be touched and reconnect with them, opening up a new level of relationship.
~ Learn how to use a sofa, a bed, a floor or even a massage table as tools for at-home bodywork to help one another.
~ Learn how to be fully present for yourself and your partner(s) as we learn about Ho'Oponopono and how energy can change everything.
All couples or circles are welcome whether you are straight, gay, pan, poly, multiracial, multicultural, multigenerational... you name it- you can join us with no fear of judgement or funny looks!
All types of couples or poly families may be present.
If you have a personal issue with how others experience love, please do not join us.
