is a longtime member of the Esalen massage staff. Her work is strongly influenced by her studies in craniosacral work, movement, yoga, and dance.
Experienced Esalen Massage and Bodywork practitioners Daniela Urbassek and Rob Wilks will offer unique explorations in the practices of gentle extensions and dynamic mobilization, along with soft and deep tissue release work. Range of motion and passive release techniques will also be brought onto the table, creating an atmosphere of innovation and exploration.
During this weekend workshop, we will explore the basic principles of Esalen Massage: quality of touch and presence, long, integrative and flowing strokes, and passive movement, with the client lying in the side position.
During an Esalen Massage, we experience a remarkable web of interdependence: a listening touch, a deepening breath, a sense of connection with another. When we receive a massage we remember an easier time and "come home."
