This workshop will provide a safe and supportive environment for you to explore and connect, to enhance sensitivity, and to reawaken intimate touch. The fundamental elements of Esalen Massage, such as breath awareness, quality of touch, and long integrative body strokes, will be combined with creative stretches and table movements, to support partners in giving and receiving a pleasurable full body massage.
Sessions will include demonstrations and hands-on instruction, with plenty of assisted practice time and opportunity to focus on breath, trust, and staying present.
