Advanced Esalen Massage® with Special Focus on the Shoulder Girdle

Aug 09 - 11, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Jessica Fagan & Paméla Espinoza

This advanced massage workshop focuses on the shoulder girdle and the neck. Imbalances and chronic tension around the scapulae, neck and shoulder are frequently caused by misaligned habitual movement patterns. These holding patterns result in kyphosis, elevated/retracted shoulders or a depressed chest, all of which affect one’s ability to breathe fully, supporting habits of fear and anxiety.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
