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.
Working in the side-lying position opens a wide range of new possibilities for both the practitioner and client, allowing the practitioner to simultaneously access the front and back of the body and move the limbs in a variety of ways. This position is especially wonderful for pregnant women as well as people who are facing physical challenges and are unable to lie on their backs or fronts.
This workshop is suitable for practitioners, doulas, and all others who are interested in exploring Esalen Massage from the side-lying position. It is especially useful for those in the helping and healing professions in working with their clients and patients.
