Traditional Thai Massage
is an ancient form of body therapy, commonly practiced throughout Thailand.
I use a wonderful
combination of acupressure, massage and gently applied yoga stretches, using my hands, feet and elbows in a flowing series
This is a fully clothed massage given on a futon mat on the floor. With gentle rocking, deep stretching and compressions
it assists in the natural rebalancing of your muscular-skeletal framework.
It is very much like a form
of meditation for the giver and receiver as we both move into a space of gentle trust and receptivity.
Known as “lazy man’s yoga”, you will feel invigorated and centred after a treatment.
* Brings balance throughout your body
* Restores any left-side/ right-side
* Relieves your stress
* Improves your circulation and organ function
* Encourages "letting go" of any holding patterns in your body
* Increases your flexibility
* Relaxes and invigorates
all your layers of muscles, ligaments, joints and connective tissues
Cultural Bodywork is based on the dance-like, flowing movements of traditional Hawaiian Kahuna Massage (Lomi Lomi),
with the insight and spirit of the Maori and Aboriginal cultures. The touch is powerful and respectful, and allows for transformation
on a cellular level.
Using natural oils, I use my hands and forearms in long fluid
strokes, of varying degrees of intensity, in a gentle rhythm over your entire body.
On a physical level this healing art moves large volumes of
your blood and invigorates your lymphatic flow throughout the body, bringing oxygen and nutrients to every cell. Muscle contractions
and tensions are relieved, circulation is improved, and elimination of toxins is increased, thus improving your body movement.
By releasing physically held tension, the
corresponding emotional aspect can surface and also be released, stimulating the flow of energy within you to promote self-healing.
Cultural Bodywork connects with the soul, listens to the spirit and heals through the body.
Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a popular
treatment based on Ayurvedic techniques involving oil massage on your upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. A variety
of massage skills are used dependent on what you require.
There are numerous acupressure points located upon the
head, and therefore many tensions can be released from the body by working on this specific area.
It can ease your
headaches, anxiety and stress, neck or shoulder stiffness, tinnitus, sinusitis, mental tiredness, insomnia, hair loss and
thinning, and eye strain.
You will experience a deep relaxation and increased clarity in your thinking.
