What Esalen Massage Means to me
* from the mind of me*
When I read the definition of a Esalen Massage it just generates inside of me such a beautifully gentle feeling that's it's hard to describe as I feel it.
I call it "connecting" Connecting the entire body so that it's one universal feeling. In other words, a regular massage is very thorough. You start at the top of the body or vise-versa and work your way towards the other end. Massaging each appendage as a separate entity. My Massage is the exact opposite of this. This is exactly where my interpretation of "Esalen Massage" comes into play.
First, there is never a time when my hand is not touching some part of your body. We are always connected bringing us closer to being "one" with each other. Secondly, I do NOT treat different parts of your body as separate entities.
An Esalen Massage is based on your ability to let go of the world from which you just walked in from. You enter my world and from that very moment I take full control of every action therein. The ONLY thing you have to do is relax. No matter what your daily day, week or life is like it does not follow you into our space. To help you get to where you need you to be, and after you are comfortable, I will explain a bit what I'm doing and what you need to do.
Taking away as many senses as I possibly can is so important to a complete connection
I take your sense of hearing and I fill it with soft beautifully relaxing music. I take your sense of sight away by suggesting that your eyes be closed at all times. I take away your own sense of touch by asking you not to move at all so that the only touch you feel is what is placed upon you. Your trust in me at this time now is complete and hopefully will allow you now to rest your mind. With no other things to think about and only with the ability to feel that which I place upon you is extremely intense and utterly relaxing at the same exact time.
As the sounds of soothing music fill a warm room you will begin to feel long, sensual, feather-light strokes run along your entire body. Making absolutely no breaks or cut offs your body and mind infusion begins. Where one part of your body begins and the other part ends will become nothing more than a hazy fuzzy blur. The connection of the entire body elicits a very soft trance-like feeling coupled with an arousal and awakening of every nerve, muscle and inch of your skin. Bringing your entire body to the same exact level of relaxation and ecstasy, this is truly all encompassing.
The connection of your body is the most important path to relaxation. This "connecting" is where we begin the rhythm-like strokes that define an "Esalen" Massage.
