Swedish Massage is a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration and shaking motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish Massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating.
When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow.
Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage, as itís name says, focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is designed to reach the deep sections of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibres. Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, the purpose of Deep Tissue Massage is to un stick the fibres of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held tension points.
This treatment uses 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.
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 can also be found on the hands and other body parts, however, the most commonly treated area is the feet. Reflexology can be a relaxing therapy that works on many levels, soothing, calming, balances and boosting the entire body.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body's immune system. It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, excess fluids, low immunity, swollen node and also for the physically inactive.
By using deep finger pressure at certain points, practitioners can reduce tension, increase circulation and offer relief for many complaints.
Acupressure deals with all aspects of a person considering body, emotions, mind and spirit as one, not as separate parts. The healing touch of acupressure relieves stress thus strengthening resistance to disease and supporting a longer, healthier, more vital life. It also increases blood circulation and aids in the removal of toxic wastes.
Cranio-sacral balancing is a gentle healing technique where the therapist gently mobilises and releases the craniosacral system (from the scull to the sacrum). This therapy can be very beneficial in the treatment of hyperactivity, dyslexia, insomnia, headaches and stress related problems.
Reiki, meaning "universal life force energy", aims to improve health and enhance the quality of life. It treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
"Luana" Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage
This massage was taught through oral tradition as a sacred healing art, an ancient Hawaiian 'spiritual massage' with the concept of working with the 'mana' (life force) off the body, mind and soul of an individual. Invigorating & soothing, yet energising and restorative, increases circulation, decreases muscle tension, and improves health and wellbeing of the whole body.
In keeping with Hawaiian tradition, we use our signature 'Luana Island Oil' formulated to capture the essence of Hawaii.
Your massage begins with our signature 'Luana' Oil warmly drizzled onto the body. Then in a firm and rhythmic massage sequence our heated volcanic stones release their healing energies deep into the muscles, dissolving any tensions or stress. A sensory experience to harmonise the body, mind and spirit.
