What is Esalen Massage ?
A presence-based approach to quality touch, with integrating long, flowing strokes over the entire body. This gives the receiver a felt sense o f wholeness and connectedness, and creates a safe container for self-discovery.
The principle goals of an Esalen Massage: to bring embodied awareness to both the receiver and the giver; to facilitate a state of deep, profound relaxation; and to bring the body to a state in which it can reorganize and heal itself.
