Massage, Somatics, & Energy Work

by Cole Cottin, Kel Fisher, and Molly Milligan


Somatics is a field within the bodywork and movement professions that emphasizes healing through internal physical perception and experience. Somatic practitioners facilitate awareness-based embodiment processes for clients, through a blend of touch, breathwork, movement, sound, and dialogue. A major goal of somatics is to bridge the mind-body divide, facilitating deeper neural connections and amplifying the innate healing potential of the body and being. Life moving towards life.

Esalen® Massage

An Esalen Massage is an inward journey rather than purely a therapeutic treatment. Through long strokes, a slow pace, and pauses, you are invited to return to your natural state of balance and alignment. Transformation occurs not through deep-tissue work but rather through an active participation between giver and receiver. As your practitioner’s hands direct your attention, this awareness evokes relaxation and change. Then your practitioner can apply deeper, more specific work as needed. The massage developed here at the hot springs recognizes that the body releases into pleasurable sensation. The body and mind are one.


Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.

Chelation Therapy

Chelation Therapy clears your energy field by removing auric debris. Chelation also fills the human aura up with energy, as in blowing up a balloon, and generally balances it. This is done by running energy into the body in steps starting at the feet and creates balance and health in the whole system. Energy is run in the most natural way by starting at the feet because energy is run normally drawn up from the earth through the first chakra and the two chakras at the bottom of the feet. These earth energies are always needed in healing the physical body because they are of lower physical vibrations. Thus, the practitioner is the channel of the Universal Energy Field and is pouring energy into a depleted system in the most natural way it goes. This way, the energy body takes in the energy and carries it to where it is needed. Your energy system will take the energy and automatically move it to the area in the body where it is needed.

The process of healing through Chelation Therapy both rebalances, recharges, and restructures your energy field and can help you connect with yourself and understand and begin to transmute what caused potential energy blocks within your energy field, perhaps due to a psychological or physical issue(s) from your past.

During the session, the practitioner will begin at your feet until your general energy field is cleared and balanced. Energy flowing from this position activates the whole field, and as the practitioner moves up the body, your aura will continue to clear.

One session takes about 1 hour to complete.
