Introduction to Esalen Massage®: The Art of Healing Touch

May 17 - 19, 2019 Begins in 3 weeks
with Paméla Espinoza & Silvia Guersenzvaig

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 weekend, 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.


Advanced Esalen Massage® with Special Focus on the Shoulder Girdle

Aug 09 - 11, 2019 Begins in 3 months
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.
