Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a gentle and effective style of massage that works on people of all ages and helps numerous health conditions.

The practitioner uses diagnostic techniques from Chinese medicine and then uses their whole body – palms, thumbs, elbows, forearms, knees and feet – to apply pressure to relieve tension and energy blockages. This technique combined with stretches and gentle joint rotations releases tight muscles, improving joint movement and posture.

Holistic Remedial Massage

Holistic remedial massage is a blissful blend of targeted deep tissue massage 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.

Ka Huna Massage for Relaxation and Vitality

Ka Huna massage is known for its effectiveness in decreasing tension and pain. In contrast to many other massage treatments, Ka Huna Massage is not purely physical.  Our therapist employs subtle energetic healing techniques which work on your emotional and spiritual wellbeing to leave you feeling revived.

Your practitioner will use her hands, forearms and elbows with long, flowing strokes both over and under your body. Your body will 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 stimulates the natural flow of energy within the body and work to reduce stress, promoting your overall wellbeing.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is a gentle form of bodywork in which subtle moves performed over the muscles and connective tissue to send messages into the nervous system. Even though this work is subtle, it can have powerful results, even after one session.

During your session, the practitioner will use their hands to make gentle corrections to the tissues and then there will be a pause between each correction. During these pauses, the body becomes relaxed, and begins to return to balance.

Bowen therapy can be effective in treating a wide range of ailments, not just muscle and joint issues – and is a great supportive treatment for people with chronic illness such as MS, Parkinsons or CP.
