Our therapists treat holistically, using whole-body techniques to lift you both physically and spiritually. Your session may incorporate reiki, sound healing, trigger-point therapy, aromatherapy or hot stones depending on your individual needs.

Ka Huna & Lomi Lomi Massage Carlton North

Ka Huna and Lomi Lomi massage are very closely related and are known for their effectiveness in decreasing tension and pain. In contrast to many other styles, Ka Huna and Lomi Lomi Massage are never considered purely physical.  Our therapists employ subtle energetic healing techniques which work on your emotional and spiritual wellbeing to give you a reset.

Close attention is paid to comfort, flow, and breath in this session. Your whole body will receive touch to relax your nervous system and quiet your mind.

Along with massage, your session may include Guided Meditation, Intuitive Energetic Healing, Reiki, and Sound Healing. Every session is unique.

Your practitioner will use their hands, forearms and elbows with long, flowing strokes both over your body. Your body may be moved around the table in a lightly energetic, yet deeply relaxing and flowing way.  You are covered in organic oil from head to toe, while alternating soft and deep tissue pressure is applied using the practitioner’s own body weight and loving hands.

Ka Huna and Lomi Lomi stimulate the natural flow of energy within the body and work to reduce stress, promoting your overall wellbeing.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) specifically works on your lymphatic system.

This system removes cellular wastes, debris and leftover materials – returning them back to the circulatory system so they can be flushed out of the body.

Pregnancy Massage Carlton North

Prenatal massage is designed specifically for women during all stages of pregnancy. Taking time out for yourself during pregnancy is vital for emotional, physical and mental balance during this profound time of change.

Studies indicate that Prenatal massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.

Of course, you may be sore as your body changes and your centre of gravity shifts. That’s a lot of biomechanical change for your body to manage in a short time! While it’s delightfully soothing to have your muscles attended to, our therapists are deeply in tune with the sacred nature of carrying and birthing life, so you’ll be treated like the Queen you are. Expect some proper loving.
