International Certification in Esalen Massage

The Esalen International Certification in Massage of 100hs offers a comprehensive training. It is intended for all certified bodyworkers who wish to incorporate this approach.

The Esalen Institute (California, USA) was a pioneer in integrating body, mind and spirit. Your Esalen Massage Certification curriculum builds on this rich history.

This massage is based on “presence”. Its application and use of consciousness utilizes the simple human touch to awaken processes. They are inherent to the healing already existing within every cell of the human body.

One characteristic that naturally arises in Esalen massage sessions is a sense of wholeness, peace and self-healing. All of this is activated through this powerful technique.

International Certification in Esalen Massage

We will start the day with a practice that will lead us to center ourselves to be present and awaken our senses. We will do this through meditation, yoga, and movement practices.

Daily training in the practice of Esalen massage will show you the holistic approach of this technique. From this place you will develop the quality of touch, especially through the “Long Movements”.

These movements are the hallmark of Esalen massage and above all act as integrators that connect the different aspects of this work. All of this is integrated with a very fluid touch. These integrative movements remind the body that it is essentially composed of water and that fluidity is its birthright.

Lectures, demonstrations and daily supervised practice will be an essential part of each training day. Therefore, we will place special emphasis on achieving proper body mechanics.

You will develop your own body awareness through a wide variety of exercises. You will also gain relevant knowledge of anatomy and physiology that will be integrated into the teaching of this art.

You will also learn communication skills to interact with clients in a clear and compassionate manner.
