Full Body Massage
I draw on a variety of styles and disciplines to give an integrated, restorative massage that will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. It is tailored to the needs of each individual and pressure and techniques vary accordingly. A blend of Lomi, Swedish and deep tissue generally form the basis of this treatment, and essential oils can be added to further enhance the experience.
This is the ancient art of using the essential oil of plants to support psychological and physical wellbeing. I carefully blend a mix of high quality, pure essential oils to suit each individual. They are diluted in a carrier oil and applied to the body by a massage which is generally lighter in pressure. This is a truly relaxing treatment for both mind and body, and can be profoundly transformative.
This is suited to those who lead physically active lives such as gym users, sports people, yogis, and dancers. I employ a number of techniques, specifically deep tissue, to condition and aid sore and overworked muscles as well as targeting specific issues and minor injuries.
Lomi Lomi Massage
Also known as Loving Hands Massage, this ancient Hawaiian massage is essentially a healing experience, and for this to take place an intention of love is held by the practitioner. It is a profoundly relaxing massage; slow, soft, sensuous and intimate. Long strokes with palms and forearms flow the entire length of the body to consciously honour it in a loving, respectful way.
A combination of these modalities is often employed in a single session to best serve your unique requirements. I often use Lomi techniques to relax the body prior to working deeper into the muscles for instance. Often, a client may request a relaxation massage but wishes to have some remedial work done on a specific area. We will discuss your needs at the start of each visit.
