Esalen-Inspired Freeform Massage
Caring Palms Massage and Reiki
Esalen-inspired freeform massage offers relaxation in the extreme using long, slow strokes with varying pressure and continuous movement with pauses to allow the body to assimilate what has just happened. It also incorporates stretches that allow the muscles to be worked deeply. There is no routine. It is all completely intuitive. There are moves, and those moves could be ones used in other styles, but they are put together based on what feels right at the time. The idea is to treat the client like a whole being rather than a series of parts. The flow of the movements makes all the parts feel integrated into the whole that it is. 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. Because it works with movements that go the entire length of the body, minimum draping is necessary.
