Bhakti means devotion
Bhakti yoga is the practice of devotion – offering every thought, sound, and action to another. Bhakti Massage is a similar devotional practice. Rather than a particular set of moves or techniques, Bhakti Massage is all about presence-based touch. During our time together, I devote my intention, skill, and compassion to your healing journey. You are worthy of health, ease, and relaxation. My has developed out of nurturing Esalen® Massage and slow, structurally-focused Deep Bodywork®.
Esalen® Massage, well-known for its long flowing strokes over the whole body, helps release the stresses of everyday life, leaving the receiver feeling whole, integrated and deeply relaxed, in a natural state of well-being. The Esalen Massage is best described as the interface and integration of form, energy, structure, and soul. With nurturing contact, integrating strokes, and detailed attention to the whole body, an Esalen Massage provides a state of deep relaxation and healing. For more information, visit www.esalen.org
Deep Bodywork® is a method of deep tissue massage developed by Perry Holloman over the past 25 years at the Esalen Institute. Unlike other forms of deep tissue therapy, Deep Bodywork combines the therapeutic effectiveness of slow, structural work with the integrative quality of a flowing Esalen massage. The deep tissue component of Deep Bodywork can facilitate profound mindbody shifts and alleviation of chronic pain. The amount and quality of pressure applied is determined in clear consultation with the recipient. You can learn more about Deep Bodywork® and Perry and Johanna Holloman at deepbodywork.com
