Inner Peace is a space where Esalen® Massage session and Active Meditation are offered in a Japanese traditional-styled room in the suburb of Osaka, Japan.
A session and meditation are offered to women by Michiko, who is a certified Esalen® Massage practitioner and a meditation facilitator. The session is offered not only in Japanese but also in English.
Esalen® Massage was created and has been developed in Esalen Institute in California, which is one of the oldest growth center in the world, since 1960s. Esalen® Massage is based on Swedish Massage, featuring a long flowing stroke throughout the body. It has adopted various techniques from other modalities, such as stretching, rocking, joint movement, in order to awaken every cell in the body.
This is a massage with which the giver helps the receiver bring awareness and give space to the body, in stead of trying to get rid of tension or fixing anything in the body, so that letting go can happen in the receiver by itself in deep relaxation. The giver see the receiver as a whole, a being including body, mind and soul, with respect and compassion.
Active Meditation consists of meditation methods practiced in the East, and psychotherapy techniques developed in the West. It is designed to become aware of silence and peace that are inherent to us all through humming, shaking, dancing, whirling, using breath, movement and sound, etc. There are more than ten types of Active Meditation practiced today with special music created specifically to support the process of meditation.
I, Michiko Onishi, majored in agricultural economics at university and graduate school and then worked for a company which deals with organic vegetables and fruits. I started the healing journey when I lost my health in my early 20’s. First, I learned a lot about myself, about body and mind, as a client through alternative medicine, bodywork and psychotherapy. The inner healing journey has been deepening since I started to meditate in 2014. Now, having fully recovered, feeling even better than I used to, I am happy to give support through Esalen® Massage and meditation and to share my experience with people.
