Massage or 'structured touching' is touching with a purpose. It is directed toward relieving muscle pain and stress, increasing body awareness and creating equilibrium. The intention is to create a deeper state of awareness and energized relaxation.

Esalen-style massage draws from both Swedish massage and sensory awareness (a method of teaching people to get in touch with their bodies). This style of massage is characterized by long sweeping strokes puctuated by deep specific work, passive joint movement and personal connection. Read about Esalen Massage...

About Esalen Massage

Esalen massage is characterized by long, sweeping, oiled strokes punctuated by deep specific work, passive joint movement, and personal connection, to create a deeper state of awareness and energized relaxation in the receiver. The importance of touch to promote growth, as well as our vast capacity for self healing, has been well documented. Massage reconnects us with that potential.

Massage is “structured touching” or touching with a purpose. This purpose may be directed toward relieving muscle pain and stress, increasing body awareness, or bringing equilibrium to a life in crisis. Tangible outcomes can be experienced in the active stimulation of skin, lymph and blood, relaxation of the muscles and nervous system, elimination of metabolic waste, stretching of connective tissues and release of a tranquilizing effect into the entire parasympathetic nervous system. It is a healthy way of relieving stress and reconnecting with the body. It is a process of re-educating and re-integrating the physical, mental and emotional
bodies.

The recipient is gently urged to become an active participant through heightened awareness and surrendering to a deep sensing place. Long lengthening strokes with gentle rocking and stretching, passive joint movement, sculpting of deep musculature and trigger point work are the hallmarks of this style of massage. Personal attention takes precedence over technique, thus each massage is unique in itself.

ESALEN massage seeks to help the person live more comfortably in his or her own body and integrate body, mind and spirit into a more harmonious whole person. Part of the attitude of ESALEN is that touching is a basic need, as essential as air, food or water: that caring about others is natural; that getting in touch with one's own body leads to a more effective way of loving and relating to others, and that healing comes from within as well as from the outside.
