This program is specifically designed to enhance the quality and experience in loving relationships through the sense of touch. Remaining aware of self while giving attention to another is a foundational practice for all flourishing sustainable relationships, and especially important in giving and receiving Esalen Massage.
This weekend provides practitioners with the opportunity to up-level their current massage practice. Experienced Esalen Massage and Bodywork practitioners will offer unique explorations in the practices of gentle extensions and dynamic mobilization, along with soft and deep tissue release work. Range of motion and passive release techniques will also be brought onto the table, creating an atmosphere of innovation and exploration.
This workshop is a wonderful opportunity for you to enjoy the beauty of Big Sur and the healing waters of the Esalen hot springs, while gaining a foundation in the art and practice of Esalen Massage. During the week, participants will be taught massage methods that address the whole body: Esalen’s signature long flowing strokes that support feelings of wholeness, connection and integration; passive joint movement; and a variety of techniques to work with the major muscle groups of the body.
