After the success of the last session, our beauty guru Jelena Baburina held another one in May in the Clinical Skills Centre, Bloomsbury. The turnout was even better than last time after word spread about Jelena’s expertise!
This time the focus was on hand massage and how to relax which was pretty timely with final exams coming up the following week. Jelena put everyone into pairs and, after an introduction to the anatomy of the hand and reflexology, she led the group through a practical session of hand massage. With hands covered in oil and body scrub, the pairs were soon having lots of fun trying out the massage techniques, eating pizza and generally getting to know each other better!
It was a beautiful and relaxing setting thanks to some aromatherapy, candles, ambient music and lots of delicious nibbles.
One of the group commented “What I really enjoyed about it was the chance to have a good chat with my ‘hand partner’ who I didn’t know very well before. We had a good laugh and we’re pretty confident with our hand massage technique now too!”
