What is The Californian Massage?

 

This type of massage was born in the Esalen Institute (Big Sur, California) during the sixties. It was a community founded by people with very different backgrounds; the majority having arrived after spending long periods of time in India, Thailand, or Tibet for example. The community still exists today and has created a number of interesting disciplines including Californian Massage, the Rolfing method of massage, Gabriel Roth’s five rhythms, and a well-founded yoga school as well as being the birth place of Gestalt therapy. All these disciplines share common roots and the same essence.

 

Californian massage was created from a mixture of massage techniques with their origins in Ayurvedic, Thai, and Hawaiian massage, internal mobilization, harmonious rocking motions and cranio-sacral therapy, in which it is of primary importance to understand the human being as a whole. It is a holistic massage.

 

Californian massage is based on long movements that encompass the whole body as they were a kind of caress or a wave-like motion; a combination of movements with twisting, kneading, long, stroking motions, tractions and rocking movements….

The Essence of The Californian Massage

For some understanding of what this kind of massage is really about, I am going to use three basic concepts in my explanation; all three are completely inter-related and suppose a certain attitude from the person giving the massage. These three basic foundations are: presence, listening to the body and a conscious ‘mindful’ touch. If you are a yoga practitioner you will have heard your teachers refer to the state of ‘the here and now’, where they incite you to free your mind of its concerns and tensions and give you time to slowly arrive at a place and frame of mind with which to begin the practice. This is the very same concept; my reference to presence is exactly that. Californian massage is like a journey where there is no room for any additional luggage. When the masseuse is able to undertake this journey and put their ‘daily existence’ to one side and calm their mind, they will be simply present.
