This Advanced Esalen® workshop is designed for certified Esalen massage practitioners who are looking to reconnect with the foundational principles and techniques of traditional Esalen massage. This workshop builds upon those principles as we will quickly move into more advanced techniques to further your skills and address some of the common issues clients come in with. Offered in a supportive and collaborative environment where you can connect with fellow Esalen massage therapists and expand your repertoire. Jessica will skillfully customize this class for you, as each participant will have the opportunity to share their experience with Esalen massage and where they would like to expand their knowledge. PreRequisites- You must have completed an Esalen massage professional training and be practicing Esalen massage currently.
Esalen Massage® is not only comprised of physical techniques, but a form somatic learning and an an approach that addresses the body as a whole. The subtle aspect of this work can be a form of meditation for both giver and receiver.
As a teacher my goal is to guide each student through a process of experiential learning, supporting them as they develop a balance between application, intuition, and creativity.
"Jessica is one of the best teachers I've met in the different places I've studied massage. She has a passion for anatomy that is contagious, and this really helped me in my massage trainings. She also has a strong presence that imprinted my learning experience."
"Jessica (and Char) offered a beautifully rich training and made a great impression on the participants of the 28-day group in Québec in the Summer 2011."
I enjoy Jessica's massage skills both as a client and student. She is one of the most knowledgeable and talented people I know in her trade.
