Esalen massage was developed at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. Its soothing, long strokes and gentle stretches are deeply relaxing. Esalen massage melts tension, decreases toxins and improves flexibility. Esalen and lomi lomi massage blend together beautifully.
Historically, lomi lomi was reserved for kings and royalty in ancient Hawaii. This intensely nurturing massage has flowing, rhythmic strokes, like ocean waves lapping the shore, and feels wonderful.
I began studying Esalen massage as a college student, when I hosted a community class with one of Esalen's first teachers. Back then I made my first massage table out of plywood! In the years since I've completed many workshops at Esalen in Big Sur, including anatomy for massage, advanced Esalen massage, Esalen massage with hot stones, etc. (diplomas below).
My training in advanced lomi lomi massage was with Carrie Rowell, the leading lomi lomi teacher in Hawaii.
I am licensed in California as a Certified Massage Therapist.
Diplomas in Esalen, lomi lomi, hot stone and Heart Touch massage.
