Located in Big Sur, California, the Esalen Institute has become synonymous with fantastic, relaxing massage and bodywork. Esalen massage is characterized by a personal approach, including the use of intuition, long strokes, integration of multiple modalities and in the process creating a tapestry of structured touch that many people believe to be the greatest form of bodywork on earth.

The next day, after her esalen massage, she called her friend Emily and said, you've got to have an esalen massage -- it's the greatest thing I've ever done for myself.
