Celebrate the holiday season by enjoying the natural beauty of the Esalen land while learning how to give an Esalen Massage. This seasonal workshop offers the talents of two experienced teachers and a weekend of touch. This is a weekend of mutual giving and receiving for those of you who wish to learn the fundamental elements of Esalen Massage. The essence of the Esalen style of bodywork is the awareness and presence with which one approaches massage.
Esalen offers three levels of basic massage certification: For those already certified in massage by a state-approved school, the 100-hour course provides a certificate in Esalen Massage. The 250-hour Esalen Massage Certification Course meets all core requirements of the CAMTC in California to become a Certified Massage Practitioner. Many of Esalen’s weekend and five-day workshops qualify for follow-up education credit, and can fulfill the requirements for the CAMTC 500-hour Certified Massage Therapist designation.
