Holistic Remedial Massage

Holistic remedial massage is a blissful blend of targeted deep tissue work alongside other relaxing, whole-person therapies. It is a somewhat less vigorous approach than traditional remedial massage and will decrease tension and calm your nervous system.

The style of bodywork is aimed at lifting the physical and spiritual condition of the whole person. Think science and art. A number of whole-body healing methods may be used together with ‘regular’ massage in these sessions, depending on what your body is calling for.

Our Holistic Remedial Massage therapists each bring their own unique flavour to your session, so no two sessions are ever the same. All of our therapists offer Reiki as part of their treatment, but beyond that you may receive sound therapy, chakra alignment, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy – this possibilities are endless!

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.

Ka Huna Massage for Relaxation and Vitality

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.
