Perched on the bluff above the ocean, and nestled beside the healing waters of Esalen’s renowned natural hot springs, a deeply nourishing massage experience awaits you. Esalen Massage is best described as the interface and integration of form, energy, structure, and soul. With its nurturing contact, integrating strokes, and detailed attention to the whole body, an Esalen Massage provides a state of deep relaxation and healing.
Our sessions are 75 minutes long, taking place in semi-private rooms at the baths. The baths are clothing optional and co-ed. We recommend that you arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of your massage to shower and soak. Your practitioner will find you at the appointed time.
Guests without workshop reservations who are coming from off-site to receive a massage, please review Making the Most of Your Visit for important information regarding arrival time and check-in.
All massage sessions are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend your session, please contact us within seven business days of your appointment and you can be rescheduled without a charge. Cancellations with less than seven days notice will be charged the full price of the massage.
