At Esalen Relaxation Massage NYC New York, in the heart of Manhattan, my goal is to help you experience the joy and pleasure of simply being. Have you ever seen dolphins frolicking in the ocean? The sheer pleasure they express through their movement in water is similar to the pleasure of feeling hands flow over your body, and feeling your own energy, presence, and aliveness moving within you. This is what you’ll feel during an Esalen®
relaxation massage. The longer massage sessions that I offer allow you the time to fully experience what the depths of relaxation can bring.
Gold Standard Esalen Massage – 90 Min.
If you don’t have time for the full Deluxe Esalen Massage, the Gold Standard Esalen Massage
will give you a satisfying taste of what it’s all about, from head to toes. 90 minutes
of bliss will leave you feeling energized and refreshed! You just might discover you feel relaxed and happy for days afterwards. Though I must warn you, you’ll soon want to come back for more!
Deluxe Esalen Massage – 2 Hrs+
For the most satisfying feeling of relaxation you may have ever had, try the Deluxe Esalen Massage.
It will take you there. I spend over two hours
awakening the pleasurable sensation receptors in your body, front and back, from head to toes. With nothing to do but relax and receive, your awareness has time to expand and drop into your inner bliss body. This is truly a unique experience.
Mystical Melting Esalen Massage – 3 Hrs
What could possibly be better than a Deluxe two-hour Esalen massage? A three-hour
massage! For the most amazing massage you have ever experienced, the Mystical Melting Esalen Massage
could be for you. The luxury of three hours gives us time for extra attention for your hands, feet, and face, releasing tension you might not even know you are holding, giving you a more youthful, relaxed appearance. One friend told me her husband looked 10 years younger after the massage! I call this the Mystical Melting Esalen Massage because you will feel a golden glow as every muscle in your body melts. Many people feel like they are floating after this massage, and I recommend you take a taxi or walk home afterwards. No driving!
Women Only Esalen Breast Massage for Post Surgery Care – 90 Min.
I am offering a lower rate for this chest massage session, which has been specially designed to put women first, to act as a supportive health care option for woman going through the recovery process after breast surgery. Goals include providing a safe place for touch, increasing and maintaining range of motion, managing pain and discomfort, and all of the other physiological benefits that general massage can provide such as stimulation of the skin, stress management, and relaxation. This is a place where no explanation is necessary and you can relax and let someone help you.
Sexological Bodywork for Individuals and Couples
involves a combination of bodywork, breathwork, education, and massage that I use to assist individuals and couples in going deeper into their erotic experience. This form of bodywork addresses some of the most intimate human emotions and experiences. You can choose this form of bodywork simply to experience deeper pleasure; to deal with issues related to sexual shame, desire, identity, or transformation; to deepen your intimacy with your romantic partner; or to learn to use erotic energy to open into wondrous spiritual realms. Depending on your learning goals, we may work to develop skills over a course of several sessions. Couples sessions are typically 1 hour. Individual sessions are 90 minutes or 2 hours.
I am a Reiki master, which means that healing energy is flowing through my hands naturally during every massage I give. If you are interested in experiencing this unique form of healing energy on its own, I offer straight-up Reiki
sessions using the traditional hand positions. I can do the positions by lightly touching your clothed body, or even with my hands slightly above your body. Clients have reported feeling immense relief from pain from my Reiki sessions. There are no downsides to this energetic healing method that uses beneficent healing energy from the universe and from our bodies. Sessions are typically 60 minutes.
I also offer another form of energy work called Polarity Therapy
, a holistic health system developed by Dr. Randolph Stone. Polarity Therapy is based on the premise that we are fields of pulsating life energy made up of the five elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. I have also worked with these elements in the shamanic system of nature-based spirituality, as well as in Buddhist training. Many of earth’s deepest wisdom traditions incorporate these elements. A polarity session works to balance these elements, which connect to different body parts. Using Polarity Therapy, I will free up the energy so it can flow naturally throughout your body.
Luxury Details and Draping
I use unscented organic oils for all massages. I keep you comfortably draped with luxurious 100% cotton towels and sheets.
If you do not feel comfortable receiving a massage completely nude but draped
, you can keep your underwear on or even receive the massage while fully clothed. Your comfort is most important to me. Also please let me know if you prefer to be undraped during the massage.
