has been practicing and teaching massage at Esalen for more than 40 years. She has also been involved in childbirth education and practiced midwifery in Big Sur for 15 years. Peggy is the author of the book Connecting Through Touch.
During an Esalen Massage, we experience a remarkable web of interdependence: a listening touch, a deepening breath, our nervous system soothed in connection with another. When we receive a massage we remember an easier time and "come home."
No one is ever competent enough, nor is any technique effective enough. It is only the continuing growth of the practitioner that can guarantee competence and effectiveness.
