How does Esalen Massage work

Repetition of strokes helps the body to de-stress and drift into relaxation. Soothing touch and an atmosphere of nonjudgment allows the body, mind and soul to unwind and relax.

Before every Esalen Massage the therapist takes time to clear their mind of emotions and expectations. The therapist remains open to finding connections of tension and emotions in the client.

How does Esalen Massage feel

Esalen Massage is also a very soothing and light massage but the emotional aspect of the person is also considered. Esalen Massage emphasis is on a seamless flowing massage with continuous contact between therapist and client for the duration of the massage.

Traditionally the sound of ocean waves or other nature sounds are often used during an Esalen Massage session. This natural pattern of background sound is thought to aid the body in finding it's own natural rhythm and reconnect with it.

How to get the most out of your Esalen Massage

Clients are encouraged to feel free to explore any emotions, memories or thoughts that come up during the Esalen Massage session. The therapist provides no judgment, evaluation or interpretation to the client. This is not a psychological or psychotherapy treatment. The client may feel free to keep all experiences private or if they choose they can express emotion, memories or thoughts that may arise as a result of the Esalen Massage.

Do I HAVE to be undressed for a Esalen Massage

No: Your Esalen Massage is best enjoyed while fully undressed, however you are always draped and only the areas being worked on are uncovered. Be sure to let your therapist know if there is any part of your body that you DO NOT want to be massaged. Our trained massage therapists strive to respect your boundaries while giving you the most therapeutic massage possible. 

Esalen Massage requires the use of oil or lotion. The training I have received included Relaxation Massage with a strong basis in Esalen Massage. I have received through training in Swedish Massage Technique. Please call today to schedule an appointment.
