The side position massage is suitable for pregnant women and people who find it difficult to lie on their back or stomach. The massage in the side position is also a wonderful addition to the general Esalen® Massage which can be used for most clients. The client is often not only physically touched, but also emotionally. 


As with the conventional Esalen® Massage, this side position massage combines various well-known types of massage and energy work. 


Long strokes, mobilization and stretching of the joints, light weighing and the abdominal massage are also part of it. The slow strokes are felt more intensely than with conventional massages. 


During the pregnancy massage, some points of the Body are observed where it is advisable not to press hard. With this massage, the unborn child also experiences the gentle touch. This has a positive effect on mother and child.
