Enhancing Your Skills in Esalen® Massage and Bodywork

Nov 12 - 17, 2017 Begins in 3 weeks
with Nora Matten & Vicki Topp

Using principles of experiential anatomy, this workshop explores the balance between sensitive and structural touch, and the interplay of nervous system, skeleton, and muscles. These concepts serve to awaken sensory awareness, fine-tune physical skills, and deepen personal connection with self and others; all are skills that enhance the ability to give good bodywork sessions.

Sessions will include basic quieting exercises, brief demonstrations, hands-on guidance, and plenty of time for practice.
