Workshop Details

This workshop introduces the core concepts of Esalen Massage. Through brief lectures and demonstrations, and with plenty of personal supervision of hands-on work, the workshop presents essential tools and information including the long, integrating strokes and gentle stretches that are the foundation of Esalen Massage. The principle elements of bodywork, including breath and sensory awareness practices, grounding, movement and quality of contact, will also be introduced and practiced, creating a firm basis for learning massage.

This experience offers foundational skills for the newcomer, a fresh approach for the experienced practitioner, and is especially useful for those in the helping and healing professions in working with their clients and patients.

Come prepared to enjoy the healing waters of the natural hot springs and the magical beauty of the Esalen property.
