~relax and feel good~
This massage is known for its sensitive, mindful touch of the whole body. It includes long, soothing strokes, gentle stretches, light cradling, deep structural work in the muscle tissue and passive movements of the joints.

Its effect consists in:

  • Relaxation and increased blood circulation of the muscles
  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system
  • Vitalisation of the skin
  • Stress reduction and activation of the self-healing powers
  • Increase of well-being

The massage technique was developed in the 1960s at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. The name Esalen goes back to the Esalen Indians who used to live in this region and visit the hot, steaming, sulphurous springs along the cliffs. There arose a training centre where many renowned representatives of the Human Potential Movement created a completely new kind of massage, the basis of which was the idea that consciousness is a part of the body.
The massage is a sensitive ritual. It combines the wisdom of the East with Western insights, is based on classical Swedish massage, Chinese healing, Zen meditation, spontaneity and intuition, and is complemented by elements of various therapies that connect body, soul and spirit.
