Esalen-styled Massage

“Relaxation & Relief”

Esalen massage was developed in the 1960s at Esalen Institute on the Central Coast of California and this approach melded classic Swedish massage with sensory awareness practice and slow, flowing t’ai chi. The practitioner works with the receiver, rather than on the client. Today the Esalen massage signature flow is enhanced with deep tissue detail, joint mobilization, passive stretching, and energy work. As I have had an introduction and expect to obtain certification sometime in the future, I include the techniques that I learned at Esalen Institute in an Esalen-styled massage.
