Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage

An ancient Hawaiian healing art, Lomilomi incorporates long, free-flowing strokes using the forearms, elbows, alternating thumbs, hands and stones, in a continuous, fluid and rhythmic motion. Lomilomi relieves stress and tension, increases circulation and lymph flow and helps to eliminate toxins from the body. On a deeper level, Lomilomi brings about mental, emotional and spiritual healing, like the flowing and gentle waves of the ocean moving over the body. This is a massage experience not to be missed. Lomilomi may be the most powerful and profound healing you have ever experienced.

Thai Yoga Bodywork
Steeped in ayurvedic and yogic wisdom and healing practices, Thai Massage was introduced into temples over 2500 years ago. Thai yoga bodywork combines meditative breathing, deep stretching and acupressure techniques to give full-body relaxation with many health benefits. In this “passive yoga” practice , the practitioner guides the client through a series of yoga postures, while palming and thumbing along energy (‘Sen’) lines and pressure points of the body. Together these actions result in a full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the energetic body.
Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a floor mat; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable yoga type clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility. Each session is modified to specifically treat the needs of each client.

Jin Shin Jyutsu 

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a Japanese healing art that balances body, mind & spirit by using our hands. For the body to be healthy, energy needs to flow freely. When there is a energy blockage because of our hurried lifestyle, environmental issue or heredity, the energy gets blocked. This pattern will cause disharmony or disease. To harmonize the energy in the body, we apply our hands to specific locations on the body. This allows for blocked energy to once again flow freely. When all the energy is flowing in harmony, there is a sense of well-being and happiness.

 Polarity Therapy

Polarity Therapy is a powerful approach to health and well-being. The Polarity Principle works on the assumption that there is life energy and that disease results when our life energy is blocked or is out of balance. The free flow of life energy is necessary for health. The aim of Polarity Therapy is to correct imbalances in the energy flow and enable the body’s self-healing systems to operate effectively.

Energetic patterns do not always release with muscle massage. The work has to go beyond where the pattern gets repeated in order to facilitate a shift. By going deeper into stress patterns, the body’s unconscious holding patterns are released.

As a component of the polarity approach, guidance in diet changes, methods to release trauma and other suggestions may be recommended as messages from the client’s energy field supplies information to the experienced practitioner.

Polarity complements massage and it often facilitates a deep, spiritual and emotional change resulting from the awareness of energy. Often, deep and lasting changes can occur. Usually, a deep meditative state is achieved during a Polarity session.

Making The Most of Your Massage:

The most important thing to remember is that  this is YOUR massage!  This is your time to unwind and unplug.  Be kind to yourself and remember to switch off you phone.

If there is anything that will make your experience more enjoyable, don’t hesitate to say so.  Whether if you are feeling too warm or cold, the pressure is too light or too deep, the music volume is not to your liking; please let your therapist know.

BREATHE.  Take nice full breaths throughout your session and allow yourself to tune out by focusing on your breath, the music, and on your therapist touch.


Massage FAQs:

Is massage supposed to be painful?

No. The saying “No pain, no gain!” does not apply in massage therapy.  Muscle tightness is best addressed when you are relaxed and breathing fully.  Some of the most effective relief from pain or tight muscles can come from a very gentle touch.

When too much pressure is used, the body has a tendency to tense up to defend and guard against the painful feeling, which is contrary to the therapeutic intention of the massage.  This is why it is very important to communicate clearly during a massage if you feel like your therapist is working too deeply.   During deep tissue massage you can experience some pain or discomfort when the therapist is working to break up adhesions in the muscles.  Breathe deeply and exhale fully and always make sure that you are with in your comfort range, otherwise, please speak up, you will not offend your therapist.

What do I wear during the massage?

While for many a massage is best enjoyed fully undressed, some people choose to only partially undress.  Wearing clothes can sometimes restrict work in an area that may be beneficial to address, but work through clothing can also be effective.  The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and relaxed.  The therapist will always leave the room for you to undress and get onto the table in private.  During the massage you will always be covered by a sheet, except for the area being worked on, to ensure your warmth and comfort.

Can I talk during the massage?

You are of course welcome to talk during a massage, but should know that it can be much more beneficial and enjoyable to just relax and quiet you mind. Your therapist is concentrating on your body and your experience; they do not need to be “entertained”.  This is your time, so you can make it as quiet or as conversational as you wish.

What if I have to use the restroom during a massage?

You may stop a massage at any time if you need to relieve yourself, it happens! It is very hard to relax when you have to go, so just tell you therapist.  It is of course better to go beforehand to avoid interrupting your session.

Will I be sore after a massage?  Sometimes after a deep massage you can experience a little soreness 1-2 days afterwards.  It is important to hydrate by drinking a lot of water after any bodywork.  This helps to flush toxins that are released from the muscles during massage to help to prevent soreness.  Sometimes after deep, specific work your therapist might advise you to use ice on the area to help prevent potential tenderness.
