My favorite style of massage is Esalen. It was developed in the early 1960’s at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur California. More than just a style of massage, it was a feeling and belief in the goodness of mankind; with a lot of ties to the hippie movement.
I just ran across this video of a concert weekend at Esalen recorded in 1969. It’s like a mini Woodstock with glimpses of the grounds and facilities of Esalen.
Everyone in this film is at least 70 years old now. I hope they are still full of love and energy. These were my teenage years. ❤️
My first exposure to massage was in 1976 when I moved to Austin and took a massage class from someone that had studied at Esalen. The hot tub and the outdoor massages that I offer are inspired by Esalen.
Enjoy

Wow, what a difference a few days makes. From 7” of snow and 5 degrees with no electricity, to springlike weather with sunshine and 72 degrees. Welcome to Texas. 😂 (Although this was pretty extreme even for us)

I’ll open back up Monday afternoon. Heck I might even do an outdoor massage if it’s over 70 again. Email me if you’d like a massage.

Ps....I still require a face mask and all the Covid precautions. Nothing changed there yet. ☹️
It’s been quite a week in Austin. Obviously we’ve been closed due to the snow, icy roads, and lack of power. Enjoy these beautiful pictures of our snow covered oasis. Hopefully next week we can reopen. ❤️😷

Spring weather has finally arrived, along with the promise of relief from Covid-19. I’ve received my first shot and will have my second dose next week. Masks are still required here, but I think that may go away by mid-summer.
I’m taking limited appointments still. Only one per day, but it can be a couples session if you want to bring a friend along. Hot tub, fruit tray, glass of wine, and a wonderful, relaxing outdoor massage. It’s s great way to celebrate the arrival of spring.
Call or email me to set up your appointment.

Beautiful weather this week and several openings for massage. Come get pampered.

Fall weather has finally arrived. The outdoor hot tub feels great and it's the perfect weather for an outdoor massage. Feel the breeze, listen to the waterfalls and wind chimes, and relax to the sounds of nature while you get your massage. Reserve your spot soon.

09/16/2019

I still have several openings this week. Come get pampered!

Flowers everywhere!! The water lilies are in full bloom and the neighborhood is bursting with color from the Indian Blankets and yellow daisies. Make an appointment and come enjoy them. 🌞

The weather has finally turned to spring full time. Most massages can now be outdoors if you prefer, but the inside room is always available if you’re not an outside person.
The ponds are clear, the fish are hungry, and the time for your massage is now. Give me a call or email me.

Government Shutdown Special! - Furloughed government employees, come get your massage while you have some time off and pay me when the government reopens and gives you your back pay. Relieve that stress with a soak in the hot tub and a soothing massage.

This beautiful buck stopped by the spa today for some fresh acorns. You never know who you might see while relaxing in the hot tub before your massage. 👍

The goldfish are enjoying the sunshine today.

10/28/2018

Beautiful fall weather, time to get pampered with an outdoor massage and soak in the hot tub.

08/22/2018

I’m closed for vacation until September 12th. My annual trip to Burning Man in the Nevada desert.

06/16/2018

Summer has arrived... just perfect for an outdoor massage listening to the sounds of the water and the birds and the crickets.

The water lilies are in full bloom. Very pretty!!

04/04/2018

Hard to believe it's already April. Things are pretty busy this month, the weather is great, and most massages have moved back outside. Book yours now!

02/01/2018

Today's weather is more what I like to think winter in Austin is supposed to be. High of 73. Two outdoor massages this afternoon. Come on out and get your pampering soon!!

01/05/2018

I'll be open again starting January 9th and I have several open slots on
Thursday and Friday, Jan 11 and 12. Email me to set up a time.

We’re closed this week but reopen Jan 7th. Hopefully it will be warmer by then.

12/14/2017

I had a cancellation for tomorrow morning, so if anyone is interested in a last minute massage before the holidays I have an opening tomorrow, Friday, December 15th at 10am. It can be a single or couples session. Come get pampered!!

It’s a winter wonderland at the spa this morning. Today’s sessions will be indoor. 👍

But it will be back in the 70’s by next week and the hot tub feels great in the cold.

12/07/2017

Well, that beautiful weather is a thing of the past....snowing and 39 degrees right now, so massages will be indoors for a while... but the hot tub still feels great even when it's cold outside. Come and warm up with a relaxing massage. Table is heated and hot tub is ready. See you soon.

11/28/2017

Can you believe this beautiful weather??? Giving outdoor massages this week!!

10/20/2017

Business has been brisk with the end of the summer heat, so making your appointments a couple of weeks in advance is highly recommended. Sometimes there is that magical chance of a same day or next day appointment, but don’t count on it.
The hot tub is open even in the coldest of weather; it’s only closed if it’s raining. But for an outdoor massage, the weather is unpredictable this time of year. So far we’ve had only 3-4 days when it was too cold, but the odds are slim December thru March. Call today and get on the schedule!

I'm back!! Vacation is over and I'm open for appointments. There are still openings for Wednesday thru Friday of next week. Singles and couples sessions. I hope to see you soon.

Just a quick heads up announcement. I will be taking my annual vacation trip to Burning Man soon, so I will be closed from Aug 7 until Sept 11. I still have openings for the week of July 31-August 4 if you want a massage now. Otherwise I'll be re-opening for appointments on September 11.
Joe

This Thursday is wide open for appointments. Come get pampered. 😊
