Workshop Details

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. Each day will include a brief massage demonstration and instruction in various self-care methods, with plenty of time to practice giving and receiving a massage.

Your instructors will work at the tables with each participant to accommodate the group’s different skill levels. Beginners will be taught the basic tools and techniques that will allow them to more skillfully massage their partners, friends, and family. More experienced practitioners will be taught techniques that can easily be integrated into their massage sessions, inspiring and infusing their work with a deep sense of presence and flow. This workshop is also useful for those in the helping and healing professions in working with their clients and patients. Join us for a week of learning, healing, nurturing, and play!
