Relaxation massage is a gentle and smooth flowing style of massage that is specifically designed to promote deep relaxation and to allow you to unwind. It improves circulation, can reduce blood pressure, enhances range of movement, and gives relief from minor muscle tension.
Deep Tissue Massage
Pressure as well as friction is applied to the muscle fibres with the help of elbows, hands and fingers. It focuses on realigning the deeper layers of muscles. Pressure is also applied to separate as well as to stretch the tissue of the muscles in order to enhance blood circulation. Deep Tissue Massage also helps in the release of toxins from the body and thus provides relaxation of the muscles. It can help reduce and relieve deep chronic muscle tension represented as knots, muscle induced pinched nerves, and can help lessen inflammation patterns, reduce scar tissue and assist with sciatica.
Sports massage can prevent injuries and restore mobility to injured muscle tissue and boost performance. Sports massage enables nutrients and fluids to pass through tissue membrane. This assists the removal of waste products such as lactic acid and stimulates the muscles to take up nutrients and oxygen, helping them recover quickly.
Ka Huna Hawaiian Massage
Ka Huna is a Hawaiian style massage and is unique in a number of respects. The practitioner uses their hands, elbows and forearms and moves around the table (using Tai Chi style movements) working with energy and vibrational tones of the body, while applying deep and soft tissue massage. Special music is played and the practitioner attunes the flow of the massage to harmonise the various rhythms within the client's body-mind-soul.
Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage
The Heartworks Lomi Lomi technique is a form of massage and healing therapy that has its roots firmly planted in the intuitive or spiritual core of bodywork. This flowing and rythmic style of Hawaiian massage includes long fluid rhythmic strokes over the entire body with the hands (we use the hands as a tool of the heart) creating a dance like movement. This effectively relieves energy blockages, allow circulation, spirit, oxygen and life to flow throughout the entire body.
Pregnancy massage can reduce oedema (swelling) and blood pressure, relieve pain from varicose veins, and increase blood and lymph circulation. Massage stress on weight-bearing joints (ankles, lower back, pelvis) and reduce musculoskeletal strain and assists with cramps.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
During a lymphatic drainage session, the therapist applies pressure to the lymphatic system at certain points on the body. This stimulates blood flow, releases toxins and wastes whilst strengthening the body’s immune system.
Hot Stone Massage
With this massage the therapist uses heated smooth volcanic stones and moves them in a rhythmic massage sequence over the body. The hot stones penetrate deep into the muscles dissolving tension and stress. This massage is suitable for anyone who wants to really relax.
Reflexology is based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body. These parts, known as reflex points, are found on the soles of the feet. Reflexology is a non-intrusive technique, healing indirectly and works on many levels, soothing, calming, balancing and boosting the entire body.
Cupping is an ancient technique of clearing local congestion. It involves the creation of a vacuum next to the skin inside a glass cup. It is used for treating tight muscles, back and hip pain, repairing scar tissue, stretch marks and cellulite. It is also used for rejuvenation and stress reduction. Cupping combined with stretching can assist with injuries such as plantar fasciitis, ITB syndrome and compartment syndrome as well as other sporting injuries.
