Train in Massage & Bodywork at Esalen
Each year, Esalen offers an exciting array of opportunities for learning massage and healing arts.
Our on-site programs range from weekend and week-long workshops, to multi-week 100- and 250-hour massage practitioner certification programs. Approved Esalen Massage training programs are also offered at certain locations beyond our campus in Big Sur.
Apply For The Esalen Massage Certification Course
The dates for our next 100-hour training are yet to be announced. This program is ideal for those who already have a massage certification from another school and wish to obtain an Esalen Massage certification. This allows graduates to call themselves an Esalen Massage Practitioner.
