Hello my name is Rebecca Herrick, I'm a massage therapist in Wilmington, North Carolina and I'm here to talk about what is an esaline massage. An esaline massage is a vacation of a Swedish massage, and it was developed in the Esaline Institute which is located on the beautiful coast of California's Northern shores, Big Sur. It's an institute that has developed massage specifically as a way for people to feel more comfortable in their bodies, so increasing the connection between the mind and the body. Esaline massage focuses on the psychological effects of body work, so bringing and restoring balance and peace to people. It is basically given the same way Swedish massage is but with more focus on bringing relaxation through visualizations and meditations and the practice of yoga and more holistic way of life. And that's my example of what a esaline massage would be.
