Advanced Esalen® Massage Intensive: Gentle Creative Stretches within the Flowing Touch of Massage

Oct 26 - 31 Begins in 3 weeks
with Daniela Urbassek & Nora Matten

Moving a client’s body on the massage table in a skillful, creative, and attuned way is one of the fine skills of an advanced bodyworker. Gentle stretches not only open the body’s tissues and joints, effectively increasing the client’s range of motion, but also support the soul’s capacity to let go and surrender into a natural state of fluidity, grace, and aliveness. By weaving flowing long strokes and creative stretches into your work, you can create a sense of dancing with the body, which adds freedom, fun, and freshness to your massage.

Touching Essence™: Esalen® Massage and Essential Oils

May 17 - 22 Begins in 7 months
with Daniela Urbassek & Ellen Watson

The artistry of a skilled Esalen® Massage practitioner is recognized among connoisseurs of bodywork all over the world.  This “quality of touch” is one of the fundamental elements of Esalen Massage style and philosophy. When we add the use of essential oils, we actively engage another powerful sense. Our sense of smell has a more powerful capacity to take us deeply into our memories than any other sense. When combined with massage, a powerful alchemy occurs: deep relaxation, an opening of the heart, and freeing of breath.
