HAWAIIAN LOMI LOMI MASSAGE (The Ultimate Nurturing Full body Massage Experience!)
Lomi Lomi, the traditional Hawaiian massage, it is an ancient form of healing massage practiced by indigenous Polynesians.
As the practitioner works intuitively, a massage can be very slow and relaxing or sometimes a little faster, more lively and invigorating for the body.
The massage works by stimulating the natural flow of energy within the body in order to bring about changes in the physical, emotional and spiritual areas. There are also lot's of gentle body stretches are involved in lomi lomi massage. Stress and tension is released so that energy can flow freely once more. It is also deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Lomi lomi is good for:
-detoxification and waste removal
-improving the immune system
-stimulating lymphatic, circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems
-releasing muscle tension
-improving muscle tone
During lomi lomi massage the whole body can be massaged at the same time. This helps the client to relax completely because it is very difficult for the brain to focus on two different sectors at the same time.
Lomi lomi is the most loving, nurturing, therapeutic, unique & beautiful style of massage and two massages are never identical.
It guides you to be in touch with your inner true self & beauty, love, harmony & wellness. Why wait, dive into this beautiful journey today!
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE (detox & relax your body with oil free gentle massage now!)
Lymphatic drainage massage is a massage technique that is designed to stimulate the lymph’s circulation in order to speed up the removal of waste from the body. The Lymphatic system is responsible for removing metabolic waste, toxins, excess water and bacteria from the body; it is the premier component of the immune system. It is helpful for the nervous system as it reduces sympathetic nervous activity, allows para-sympathetic activity, stimulates the defenses of the immune system, and increases the flow and volume of the lymph fluid. The technique involves the use of gentle, rhythmic strokes and pumping movements towards the direction of the lymph nodes on the body.
Lymphatic massage is helpful for scars, stress, cellulite, stretch marks, detoxification, chronic fatigue, weight problems, arthritis, neurological disorders, pregnancy, pain, and overall wellbeing.
The benefits of lymphatic massage include:
- relieving stress and relaxing the body
- improving circulation, in turn increasing the metabolic rate
- helping with weight loss
- reducing fluid retention
- eliminating toxins, thus aiding detoxification
- reducing cellulite fat in the body
- improving immunity
- helping with sinus congestion and allergies
- hormonal imbalances
FAR INFRARED SAUNA THERAPY - is a must daily rejuvenation!
Would you like to come & see what it feels like to be refreshed, renewed, energized & speed up your recovery in just 30 minutes???
What is an infrared sauna?
Because infrared light has no ultra-violet rays, it is actually as beneficial, but much safer than natural sunlight. It is also more effective than steam because the infrared light penetrates the body so quickly and safely.
Using Infrared heaters, these saunas emit radiant heat which is absorbed directly into the body, whereas traditional saunas transmit heat indirectly via steam. Infrared saunas are therefore considered to be more effective. Health therapists have been using this technology for some time to treat joint and muscular ailments.
Benefits of infrared sauna
Infrared sauna has a number of benefits, including:
- Relieve joint & muscular stress. The infrared energy released by an Infrared Sauna can penetrate up to 4cm into muscular tissue. 93% of this energy is absorbed through our skin. By heating these tissues, we experience reducing in muscle spasms, joint stiffness and achiness, as well as general aches and pains due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
- Help immune system.
- Skin benefits.
- Strengthening the cardio-vascular system.
- Relieving stress and relaxing the body.
- Releasing new energy and reducing fatigue.
- Weight loss.
- Improving sleep.
However, the benefits are not just for young professional athletes because the micro-trauma that professional sportsmen impact on their bodies is actually very similar to the long term age related damage that our bodies experience with normal wear and tear over time. And as such the benefits of improved healing are similar for older people as well as the young and active.
So if you are suffering yourself with aches and pains and recurring injury we highly recommend that you step up the level of sessions to a minimum of 2-3 per week and ensure you maximize your bodies ability to heal itself. This is especially important during the cold winter months when you are more likely to injure yourself due to reduced blood circulation and colder muscles.
Make sure you are adequate hydrated before and after a sauna.

What is Reiki?
A Japanese word meaning spiritual/universal energy. Reiki is not a massage, it's a simple stress reduction and relaxation technique that promotes healing. This energy flows through the body restoring health & harmony & balancing your energy system. Reiki can improve your life in many ways...
Reiki helps you strengthen your immune system & speeds up the natural healing process.
By calming your mind you can alleviate stress.
Helps you balance your emotional highs & lows and disperse fears.
Develop & trust your intuition. Relax & get in touch with your inner spiritual thoughts.
A client is fully clothed during the treatment, so it's good to wear comfortable clothing. The Reiki practitioner's hands are placed on the client's body and with the hands just off the body. The energy flows not from the practitioner but through the practitioner, to the client. The client's body then begins a process that is called cleansing.
Reiki treatments are appropriate for all family members, including children and pregnant women. Reiki is a very gentle & pleasurable therapy that offers comfort, nurture and support for the good health and balance of your mind, body and emotions.

The therapy of Cupping is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
There are two effects with Cupping Therapy:
1. General: Purification of blood, improvement of circulatory functions, regulation and betterment of automatic nerve system.
2. Local: Removal of pain, relaxation of stiff muscles, improvement of muscle and joint movement.
Cupping stimulates the sensory nerves of the skin. Cupping is like massage effective against stress, general fatigue, chronic headaches, stiff shoulders and mucle and joint pain
What to expect during and after Cupping:
The patient should experience a warm, pulling, stretching sensation on the skin, but not pain.
After Cupping the skin is almost always discoloured with a bruising or ring mark caused by the edge of the cup. The extent of the bruise depends on the length of the treatment time and the strength of the suction. Normally the ring mark will disappear within a week, in some cases in a few weeks.
However if you choose a gliding Cupping treatment, then there will be no ring marks left on your skin.
You may prefer to combine Cupping with your massage treatment to benefit more!
Specially trained practitioners, use a combination of Swedish and Remedial Massage techniques, to assist with the tensions and pains experienced during pregnancy. These are often caused by the extra weight and shift in the centre of gravity. There are many physical benefits to Pregnancy Massage, in addition to the nurturing and emotional support provided by the practitioner. Massage reduces peripheral swelling, soothes the nervous system, helps to prevent insomnia, muscle cramps and back pain.
Care must be taken during the first trimester but Pregnancy Massage is beneficial throughout the whole pregnancy. Various techniques are used as the client progresses through the pregnancy and massage may be performed whilst she is lying on her side or on a special table that allows her to lie on her stomach. Once the pregnancy is advanced, she is discouraged from lying on her back as this may cause pressure on deep blood vessels.
Did you know that regular massage throughout the pregnancy is also said to shorten labour time and the return to optimal fitness after birth?Your therapist will gently nurture you and your baby through pregnancy.
“Natalia gives the most amazing lomi-lomi massage ever! I walk out of there on cloud nine. Absolutely you MUST treat yourself to being lovingly oiled and nurtured by Natalia's magic hands.
Dr Janet Hall. Psychologist”
"I suffer from anxiety and the inability to truly relax and "switch off". I have tried everything from yoga to hypnosis but nothing has ever truly worked. I heard about Reiki through a friend and decided to give it a go. Upon meeting Natalia, I immediately felt at ease. The Reiki session was nothing like I have ever experienced before. I could feel her warm and gentle energy flow through my body and can honestly say that I have never felt so calm and peaceful. The "knot" in my stomach disappeared and I slept wonderfully the next few nights. I highly recommend Natalia for her professional and kind nature.
"When I heard about Lymphatic Drainage massage I thought I was in for a painful experience, the word drainage seemed quite intense. Then I had a session with Natalia and it was the most gentlest massage but with the most profound effects. The next day I felt as if my whole body was detoxifying and I released on all levels; emotional, physical and mentally. Its a powerful massage with the softest touch on the body"
Angela Rojas - ThetaHealer
"If you have not tried a Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage before I would highly recommend it, and I would highly recommencd a visit to Natalia Armstrong to experience it. An amazing 90 minutes on a warm table in a warm room, it is both relaxing and invigorating and a completely different experience than remedial massage. A form of massage that involves the whole body rather than focusing on specific body parts, its like no other. I look forward to my next treatment!"
"I have visited Natalia on several occasions and would highly recommend her excellent remedial massage skills. Of most importance to me are:
the very comfortable and warm room, candles and music, all providing appropriate ambience;
Natalia's very pleasant and reassuring manner and her quiet working style - i.e. no talking unless you, the client, wants it!
Her readiness to apply her skills to the precise areas of concern. My first visit to Natalia required much knee massage. I had some fluid leakage and was limping. After my second visit, my knee felt much better and I was no longer limping."
Wow, what an experience I've had with Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage. I totally enjoyed being pampered on every part of my being, from the pysical, emotional and mental being taken care of! After that massage, I also felt like I detoxed as that day and the next all the blocks on my lower back were released... I felt like I was flushing from the inside too... it was totally amazing... Thanks Natalia, I'll be seeing you again!"
“I have regularly sought remedial treatments from Natalia for ongoing neck and back pain and soreness. Natalia has been invaluable in this regard. Natalia is highly trained and skilled, not only in dealing directly with areas of pain but in also identifying areas of referred pain, as well as providing an overall relaxing massage.
Natalia is also conveniently located, has flexible times for availability, a very considerable range of massage treatments to suit any of my relaxation and remedial needs, and is sensibly priced.
I have already recommended Natalia to other family members, and thoroughly recommend Natalia to anyone who requires massage therapy.”
"As a triathlete, I have found that muscular injuries are far too common and decent massage therapists far too rare. However, I consider it my great good fortune to have found Natalia. Natalia has proven on many an occasion only too willing to help and her knowledge, technique and assistance has got me back into training much quicker than anticipated. I happily recommend Natalia to all suffering from muscular soreness and strains."
"I've had many massages over the years with many different practitioners and I have to say in all honesty you Natalia are the best. Each massage was most enjoyable and even when you're pushing hard to release tension and knots I would always feel fantastic later on. I think your best treatment is your Lomilomi massage. I have never felt so relaxed and fulfilled. I think the only thing I could fault with your treatments is that they have to end."
"Thank you! Your professionalism and approach in practicing your craft is always of a high quality and no matter how short the notice, you have been able to accommodate a last minute appointment for me, providing both tension release and pain relief.
I have also enjoyed seeing the transformation that your treatment room has undertaken and look forward to using your services in the near future."
