Welcome to Esalen Healing Arts

Perched on the bluff above the ocean, and nestled beside the healing waters of Esalen’s renowned natural hot springs, a deeply nourishing massage experience awaits you.​

Esalen​ Massage® is best described as the interface and integration of form, energy, structure and soul. With its nurturing contact, integrating strokes and detailed attention to the whole body, an Esalen Massage provides a state of deep relaxation and healing. As a holistic modality designed to enhance awareness and integration, the therapeutic effect is achieved without relying on deep tissue techniques.

Our sessions are 75 minutes long, taking place in semi-private rooms at Esalen's world-renowned baths. The baths are clothing optional and co-ed. We recommend that you arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of your massage to shower and enjoy a soak. Your practitioner will find you at the appointed time.
