Using principles of experiential anatomy, this workshop explores the balance between sensitive and structural touch, and the interplay of nervous system, skeleton, and muscles. These concepts serve to awaken sensory awareness, fine-tune physical skills, and deepen personal connection with self and others, all of which are skills that enhance the ability to give good bodywork sessions. With this awareness, students will be instructed in sensitive, advanced methods for addressing various segments of the body, adding depth or movement as needed, with plenty of at-the-table guidance to respond to questions and special conditions. Mindful movement meditations and stillness practices will also support students in learning and receiving an effective nurturing massage.
This workshop includes a class that takes place in the healing waters of the Esalen mineral springs, to evoke a deep sense of personal presence, joy, and the flowing signature connection of Esalen Massage.
Come prepared to move and be moved in this journey of physical, emotional, and spiritual embodiment. The workshop is especially useful for those in the helping and healing professions who wish to freshen their vision and skills in working with their clients and patients.
