What is an Esalen massage?

Are you familiar with the Esalen massage, a technique derived from the Swedish massage? Developed in California in the 1960s, Esalen is clearly different from other types of massage.

An overview of this unique massage technique

Most massages have well-established techniques and procedures. Not Esalen. Instead, it relies on an intuitive approach designed to encourage the sensual awakening of the person being massaged and their body awareness. Although it brings a great deal of pleasure, Esalen is not an erotic massage in the true sense of the word.

How the Esalen massage works

Esalen massage normally takes place naked. And its philosophy is based on listening to the body and the presence of mind. This makes it difficult to describe precisely how it takes place, because during the massage, the masseur constantly adapts to the reactions and breathing of the person being massaged. In general, Esalen begins with a first sustained touch in order to create contact. It continues with long, slow movements that connect all parts of the body together. The massage practitioner then continues with faster and more intense movements. They finish the massage therapy with broad movements directed towards the outside of the body. This last technique creates a feeling of space for the person being massaged and frees them from tension.

Why go for Esalen?

This popular type of massage unites body and mind. The main pleasure you get is from being touched. Much like the Swedish massage, Esalen works on the muscular and circulatory levels. It promotes sensory awakening through breathing and induces complete relaxation. It therefore connects body and mind through a complete and holistic massage technique. With Esalen massage, the emphasis is on the relationship between the person being massaged and the practitioner, who approaches the client’s body little by little, then more deeply as they adapt to their client’s inhalations and exhalations.
