Esalen® Massage/ Private Somatic Sessions

Dean writes:
I've worked on the Massage Staff at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA since 1983 and have been teaching Esalen Massage since 1985.  I have studied with many teachers including Milton Trager, Fritz Smith, Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen, Judith Aston, Deane Juhan and others.  I certified in the first Esalen Somatics Training in 1989.

I offer two types of sessions:

The classic Esalen style utilizes flowing long strokes combined with gentle muscle work and passive movements to address specific problem areas while enhancing the mobility and flexibility of the spine and joints. Precise, detailed work woven together with the signature integrating strokes of Esalen Massage releases tension and facilitates a feeling of wholeness. Your session ends with energy balancing to leave you resting in a place of deep relaxation and peace--the realm of healing for body, mind and spirit.

Somatic Bodywork is received through clothing and utilizes techniques including Active Point Release work, passive movement and energy balancing to release tension patterns and remind your body that it can move easily and freely. This gentle approach is appropriate for work with specific problems as well as general body maintenance.


All sessions are $100 and last approximately
1 and 1/4 hours... please allow yourself time for integration at the end of the massage.

Available by Appointment in the Leavenworth/Wenatchee WA area
