Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage
Massage is one of the oldest and most powerful forms of healing.
Lomi Lomi is one of the most profound forms of massage. It is, is a unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healers of Hawaii.
Lomi Lomi works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and, enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.
Whilst technique is an important part of the massage and associated healing, much of the work is done by love, with the focus of the practitioner on the client being deep and complete, using loving hands and a loving heart.
This flowing with total energy, using the long continuous, flowing strokes, combined with the very loving touch, relaxes the entire being, assisting in a letting go of old beliefs, patterns and behaviours that cause limitations and which are stored in the cells of our body.
Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage is considered a Relaxation Massage.
The oils used have been hand-crafted in Hawaii and have been blessed by a Hawaiian Kahuna to aid in the healing process.

Reflexology is the application of pressure to specific areas on the feet (maybe also hands and ears) that are corresponding with certain organs and systems in the body.
Specific strokes and pressure applied to these areas affects the organs in a positive and detoxifying way and helps therefore to improve a person's health as well as helps the body to restore itself to a healthy balance. Reflexology provides some measure of benefit to all and can be part of a preventative health care regimen.
Our treatments will usually focus on the feet due to magnitude of benefit that working these areas will provide.
Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep.
Reflexology can treat a wide variety of medical conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, digestive problems, circulation problems and many more.
Reflexology is absolutely safe and the vigorous pressure can be adjusted to your comfort level to avoid discomfort.
