The experience and philosophy of Esalen relaxation massage

Esalen® relaxation massage goes beyond the physical, and can nourish the receiver on more subtle levels as well. But we begin with the physical, and Esalen relaxation massage is well-known for its long flowing strokes over the whole body, helping release the stresses of everyday life, leaving the receiver feeling whole, integrated and deeply relaxed, in a natural state of well-being. As a Manhattan-based Esalen relaxation massage practitioner, I am dedicated to connecting deeply with each client and can usually accommodate specific requests and preferences within the Esalen relaxation massage modality.

The Wish, The Experience

At the heart of all relaxation massage sessions is a sense of empowering each individual to regain a sense of harmony, reverence, and balance, and to awaken inner resources for healing. It is not unusual for me to hear, “That was the most amazing massage I’ve ever received.”

Making It Right for You

I adapted the above description of the philosophy and experience of Esalen relaxation massage from the Esalen website. I will similarly adapt the Esalen relaxation massage to the unique needs of each client who enters my Manhattan studio.
