Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up for massage or meditation classes?

Contact Diane!

What is a massage class?

Where we come together as a group and I teach couples how to massage each other. You will receive instruction in the Kriya Massage techniques. I start by showing you how to massage, then you do the massage. Kriya is about intention, flow, and energy.

Are the massage techniques difficult?

No, not at all. Actually, they are as easy as washing your own body.

Will we be naked?

Yes, but only while on the massage table.

Will others see me/us naked?

Possibly, but to the best of my intention, only briefly and, for the most part, you will have privacy. This is the most difficult logistic to handle, as we are in a group setting. There is the possibility women may see other women, and men will see men naked ~ again, only for a moment while changing places on the table.

What do we wear?

It's best to wear casual clothing which you are able to get in and out of easily. Bear in mind, we will be using massage cream and it may not be fully absorbed when you put your clothes on.

Are the workshops sexual?

Not at all. There will be no “hanky panky” during the workshops. Save your lovefest for the privacy of your own home.

How long do the massage classes last?

The weekly classes are generally one and a half hours, and the one-day workshops are three and a half hours. Remarkably, the time we spend together goes very quickly.

What if we are not enjoying the workshop?

You are free to leave at any time. Receiving massage is one the most vulnerable positions in which to be, so I want very much for you to feel safe.

How much personal instruction will we receive?

I will do my best to move among the couples, equally. I encourage you to ask questions if and when you have them. During the retreats, I will have designated time during which you may receive private instruction, if you feel you need/want more attention.

What makes you an expert in working with couples since you’re not a couple?

I’ve been licensed since 2001 and working predominantly full-time. I feel I’ve surpassed that 10,000 hour mark where one becomes highly proficient in their art/work.

What are the benefits?

You have the opportunity to love, connect and grow through touch as a couple. I really mean this - from my own experience as a therapist and working with clients. I’ve learned, firsthand, I have to trust my client, and they have to trust me. To me, magic happens in that space. The magic becomes love and intimacy. Pure connection. Kriya.

Is this workshop for professionals?

This is not a course which offers continuing education units. This is strictly non-professional. You will not receive a professional certification by taking this course.

Is this workshop available to singles?

At this time, I find it is best if you come to the course with your loved one or a very good friend whom you trust emphatically.

What do you - Diane - love most about the workshops?

In short, I truly believe you get to have the pure, physical, experience of love while indulging in Kriya Massage. That is, if you look at it as a practice….and you practice. Like any spiritual work, it becomes a practice to achieve different levels of consciousness. Kriya massage is no different. Therefore, I love that I have the opportunity to share this experience with couples who are either madly or mildly in love with one another, or the couple who has at least an ounce of desire to get back to where they once were with one another.

  • Her expertise coupled with her clients' wellness is amazing.
    I received so much healing through her.

  • Your massage was a game changer, Diane. It was as if you knew every corner of my body, and you went in there and fixed them all. I have been experiencing constant lower-spine pain for years now, opposed to having surgery, opposed to opioids, and it has been five hours since my first massage at your studio and I am still pain free. It's been years since that happened. So as of now you are stuck with me! I'll be back in a couple of weeks to get fixed again. Thank you so much.

  • One of the best massages I've ever had. Very relaxing, she makes you feel at ease. The essential oils are wonderful, too.

  • My husband and I both have been getting regular massages from Diane for nine years now. We've had a number of masseuses over the years, and we both feel Diane offers the best experience and outcomes. It's no surprise to us that Diane has been named top masseuse in Sarasota.

  • I saw Diane for the first time on a recent trip to Sarasota. It was a revelation. A healing experience and a restoration. Her energy is amazing. Cannot recommend her more highly. If you want to restore and relax and heal this is the place to go.

  • She's the best!
    I have seen Diane every Friday for 90 minutes since 2008.
    That says it all!!

  • I am an avid squash player and have played football, basketball, participated in field events, and played many years of club tennis. Ms. Lane has kept me showing up three times a week to play squash when many friends have fallen by the wayside due to hip and knee injuries and repairs (one friend has had all four joints replaced). I take no medications, play pain-free, and credit it all to the superb massage therapy I have received over the years from Ms. Lane. I recommend her without reservation.

  • I have had numerous 2-hour deep tissue massages with Diane and all were superb. As I am getting older my exercise routine is taking more of a toll on my body, but Diane's skills are keeping me going strong! The finest massage I have ever had.

  • You never know what you're going to get when you book a new therapist so I didn't have big expectations when I booked with Diane while I was in Sarasota for vacation. She was amazing! And quickly/intuitively figured out just what my body needed! Would see her all the time if I could...

    Jamie Barrutia

  • My massage was nothing less than amazing and I cannot imagine ever going to see someone else now. I was totally relaxed with you - not easy to get me there. You're about as good as one can get.

  • A unique massage experience, Diane has extraordinarily sensitive fingers with which she found those places where I unconsciously carry tension. Using light stretching and joint movements, combined with continuous massage of affected muscles, she relieved various pains and tightnesses I typically ignore. This she did without asking me where to she would like me to focus.

    James Wright

  • If I could give 6 stars I would.
    I was in town for work and was looking for a good massage after a long week. She was a quick walk from The Ritz to Downtown, on Main Street. Her style of great deep pressure and stretching was perfect. The hot towels at the end are a nice touch! Go see Diane, you won't regret it.

  • Best massage EVER!
    Diane intuitively spent time and adjusted pressure to the areas I was holding and I felt like a completely new person when I left her! Slept like a baby and feel like I can slay dragons today!! Thank you, Diane!!! You for sure have found your Super Power.

    Tracey Prescott

  • Diane is very thorough, passionate about her work, and takes the time to make her treatment the best in the business.

  • Thank you for the peace you so graciously bring to my life through massage….1 and 1/2 hours of healing to my mind, body and spirit. The gift of nurturing hands as a professional massage therapist is very much appreciated from the heart! World travel and many spa experiences have given me the opportunity to compare the bliss of your talent…you are the best!
