What Can You Expect ?
During an Esalen massage, you can expect to receive long flowing strokes that travel from the top of your body all the way down, and back up again. This creates an experience of deep relaxation supporting the natural ability of body and mind to self-heal. The practitioner moves slowly, listening to your body's response to the touch.
Your muscles will begin to warm up and relax, and the practitioner will use techniques to move into those deeper muscles of the body. A variety of techniques may be used from rocking, passive joint movement, stretching, deep tissue, accupressure, cranialsacral therapy, or energy work.
With its nurturing contact, integrating strokes and detailed attention to the whole body, an Esalen Massage provides a state of deep relaxation and healing. - Esalen.org
