Celebrate the holiday season by enjoying the natural beauty of the Esalen land, while learning how to give an Esalen Massage.
Esalen Massage is a continually evolving, creative form of somatic bodywork. The essence of this practice is the awareness and presence with which one addresses individual needs, balances the whole person, and honors the healing power of touch. This workshop provides a safe and supportive environment for participants to explore sensitivity and connection through massage.
Esalen offers two levels of basic certification in massage: For those already certified in massage by a state-approved school, the 100-Hour Esalen® Massage Certification Program provides all instruction required to earn an Esalen Massage Certification. The following 250-hour Esalen® Massage Certification program meets all core requirements of the CAMTC in California. In both cases, many of Esalen’s weekend and five-day workshops qualify for follow-up continuing education credit.
