Esalen Massage Certification Process & Forms

Thank you for your interest in immersing yourself in the 50 year tradition of Esalen Massage. At this time, we are not planning to offer a 28 day training. We are varying the formats of our trainings to better serve our students and the massage community.

We are now offering a 100 hour massage training from November 23 - December 12, 2014 for those who already have a massage certification from another school and wish to obtain an Esalen certification. This allows graduates to call themselves an Esalen Massage Practitioner.

Cost for the 100 hour training is $3750 in the standard shared accommodation and $2850 in the bunk bed shared accommodation. Costs include meals, accommodation and the training.
 
We are also offering a six-week 250 Hour Esalen Massage Certification Training that will run from January 11 - February 22, 2015.

Cost for the 250 hour training is $7500 in the standard shared accommodation and $5600 in the bunk bed shared accommodation. Some scholarship may be available for this training for those who demonstrate a need.

Costs include meals, accommodation and the training.
 
If you are interested in these trainings please let us know by returning
this email to request more information and an application.
