Esalen Massage is a unique form of bodywork developed over the last 50 years at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. This technique is known for its long, integrating strokes, creating an experience of deep relaxation supporting the natural ability of body and mind to self-heal.
This training will provide participants with in depth experience and practice of basic Esalen Massage techniques, enabling them to give a professional full body massage upon completion of the course. Our study of Mssage will be complimented by daily meditation, awareness practice, and movement.
Through our daily massage and awareness practice, we will experience in our own bodies the qualities of aliveness and flowing presence central to this method. This process of self-exploration is a key element of grounding this teaching in the experience of the body itself. In so doing, we all have the opportunity to transform what would simply be a “technique” into a true healing art. The deeper intent of our time together is to learn to touch others by first leaning to be touched, not only by the hands of our fellow students , but by an expansion of our awareness though our own bodies, selves and souls.
Learning the art of Esalen Massage often changes lives. Whether your intent is to explore to change of career, deepen your knowledge of bodywork, or to spend time healing yourself though touching, our time together will certainly stay with you for many years to come.
Whatever your intention, join us for this journey. Our hearts will convey our experience through our hands as we learn to heal ourselves and others through this wonderfully effective method called Esalen Massage.
