Esalen Massage Defined

Esalen Massage Defined

The sound of the waves provides a soothing background for any massage session at Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California. This sound, coupled with the cliffside natural hot springs and the educational community dedicated to exploring the "far reaches of human potentiality", inspires a unique approach to bodywork known worldwide as Esalen® Massage.

The ocean provides a slow-moving rhythm very much akin to the internal rhythms of the body. The receiver rests on the massage table, draped, and the practitioner's hands begin quietly, with presence, attending to breath, allowing the receiver to drop inward. The long, slow, t'ai chi-like strokes awaken awareness, and as the tissues open to the warm of touch, the contact deepens, nudging bound-up muscles, drawing forth expanded movement. A relaxing sigh resounds through the body, and the practitioner responds with integration strokes into related areas. The massage continues, seamlessly, wrapping the torso arms, legs, hands, feet, neck, and spirit into a united whole.

The practitioner brings a knowledge of strokes (many have roots in Swedish Massage), of muscles and bones, of movement, of listening to the body as well as the words. Prior to the session, he/she pays attention to his own physical comfort, and quiets down internal chatter to welcome inner guidance, or intuition. As he massages, the practitioner responds to the signs of relaxation: deepened breath, enhanced circulation, a sigh, perhaps flutters of the eyelids. Each session is unique, tailored by personal requests, comfort level, physical tension and release, the felt sense of intuition.

The effects of this intentional touch, loosely categorized as "wellness/stress management massage", range widely. For some, it brings a renewed sense of health and vigor, others may regain a sense of safety with regard to touch. Often old tension patterns break free and old emotions are released. It signals a return to one's nature, a switch from everyday consciousness into a calmer, more colorful space less inhabited by the constraints of time and place. An out-of-ordinary reality.

The sources of this rich work are endless: it was informed by sensory awareness, Swedish massage, oriental medicine, meditation, gestalt practice. The influence of deeper work borrowed from Ida Rolf's teachings, Moshe Feldenkrais' sense of neural co-ordinates, Milton Trager's passive movement to awaken the mind, yoga stretches, somatic mind-body psychology, and more energetically based polarity massage and cranial-sacral work continue to "grow" the work. Each practitioner translates this into his/her personal art form.

At the heart of the session 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 to hear, "That was the most amazing massage I've ever received."

Aveda sponsors AIDS walk in Camden

For beautiful eyes look for the good in others
For beautiful lips speak only words of kindness
For Poise walk with the certainty that you are never alone

I like this alot. I decided to be the makeup artist and therapist at the Aids Walk for Children. It was really nice, I went with three other girls we set up an AVEDA booth and gave free hand and arm massages and makeup touches to the peole that were walking. It was such an experience to meet these children that have AIDS, but not only to meet them but to meet the people that adopted them ( most were born with it and placed for adoption or taken from the birth mothers who had drug problems).. It was veryt inspirational for me to meet all these people that loved them. I think it is so sad to come into the world with a death sentence but everyone is here for a reason and God will protect them with angels. We are everyday angels and we should all try to just give back a little bit more

Power of Touch


What is the power of touch anyway?

Science tells us that a touch triggers the release of brain endorphins: an endogenous analgesic more powerful than heroin or morphine. But touch is more than just a scientific confluence of brain chemicals.

My late grandmother used to tell me that the only way to tame a wild cat was to rub the cat's forehead several times. One day, a relative from the mountain village gave my family a wild female cat. She was small but fierce. Nobody in the house dared to touch her.

Grandma's wisdom compelled me to try. I approached the cat. Initially, she would jump and would bend its body and tail in rage. Meanwhile, a loud, ferocious cry would come out from her vicious mouth. Each time I attempted to touch her, she would run away. Eventually I prevailed. She later gave in and allowed me to rub her forehead: initially, for a few seconds, then for a few minutes.

After a few days, she considerably softened that she would allow me to rub her head almost no end. Eventually she became my pet. We became very close that she would run to meet me when I come from school and would convey a lonely cry when I depart. Yes, like real close friends.

A touch can indeed tame a wild animal. But can it tame and soften a disturbed child? A study shows that children who have not been hugged enough have a tendency to be violent and aggressive compared to those who receive hug more often.

Perhaps, there is more to hug and touch than just release of endorphins.

A touch provides comfort in a freezing night. It makes us feel secure because it unites us with an affectionate, loving, and feeling human being. The warmth it brings is better than the warmth a fireplace can provide.

A touch shields us from the worries of today because of the confidence it brings. Like internet, it allows high-speed access to another soul.

Back to the Ocean...a jersey shore spa destination on location treatment

So here is my specialty back treatment
I start by using an invigorating body wash and I wash your back, cover with hot towels and remove.
I then rub a dead sea scrub into your skin which feels like a massage on the ocean.
I give you a vigorous head massage and tug your hair playing with it in my hands
I remove salt treatment and rub aloe with a paintbrush up and down your spine and all the inches of your back
Then massage you with heated oils
This is available all over the body too, if that is what youd like ; )

On Massages and Intimacy

I think with every massage there is a certain chemistry between the therapist and the client. It is so intimate to touch and be touched. I love to feel the energy between my body and anothers... To take in all the responses to touch and the energy that flows between us. It is unihibited sensual and so very neccesary especially with all the problems in the world today. To me massage is all about healing letting go and its something that I am very passionate about. One on One time with any client is something special to me to explore without boundries- an escape from a very complicated and harsh world. Most of my clients I go to the Atlantic City casinos to see. I walk in the casino after valeting my car and I am surrounded by madness-machines, money, etc. I can feel anxiousness and greeed all around me. And that is where my heling has led me to. I am a nuturer in every sense. To nuture another to me, is a moment of true peace and serenity.
