Touching Essence™: Esalen® Massage and Essential Oils

May 17 - 22, 2015 Begins in 3 weeks
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.
