It must be noted that when doing healing such as Swedish Massage or Hot Stone Therapy, it is always best to work on an unclothed body so that there are no restrictions to healing or energy flow, yet with this in mind, I will take into account people’s sensitivities and religious convictions, at no time do I wish to offend anyone or make them feel uncomfortable. When healing someone’s body in their natural and unrestricted form, you will find that are no sexual innuendos, nor gender discrimination, but a genuine caring for the individual and concern for their wellbeing.

Swedish Massage

The Swedish Massage is possibly the most recognized and possibly the most popular form of massage therapy. The origins of this massage can be traced back to Professor Ling (1800's) who realized that it could be a wonderful vocation for sight impaired people, he understood that their sense of touch was so much better than sighted people. Swedish Massage can be done purely for relaxation and pleasure, or it can done to address certain problems and blockages, and therefore create a deep healing process. It is very beneficial for sportsmen and women when done in a vigorous stimulating manner, working deep into the tissue of the muscles, to assist in breaking down lactic acids and reducing stiffness. Swedish Massage can be offered as a back and neck massage or as a full body massage. Please remember that when doing a full body massage it is best to work on an unclothed body. Extra towels can be used to cover certain parts of the body, these can then be moved for access to certain muscle groups. It usually takes approximately 90minutes and is thorough, it will entail working on the back, legs and buttocks, thereafter the clients receive massage to the front of the legs, belly, arms, chest, head and face.

Swedish Massage is very beneficial in stimulating circulation, addressing lymphatic drainage, loosening tension, as well as bringing about a sense of well-being, reducing stress levels and stimulating energies. This massage can be combined with Hot Stone Therapy, Crystal Grids, Chakra Balancing and Meridian Therapy. Parts of this healing modality and it's techniques are often used in Sensual Healing and in Couples Massage Workshops.

 

Indian Head & Shoulder Massage

This massage technique is a wonderful gentle and relaxing healing modality, it deals directly with tension in the neck and shoulders and can be used to relieve headaches as well as open up sinus blockages. This is an excellent treatment for those who wish to have shorter healing session and who do not wish to disrobe or have oils on their body. It is often used in corporate healing and can take 15 to 30 minutes, depending on client's needs. I have found that it is also popular with the elderly and frail as they do not have to mount a table for their session but can sit comfortably in a chair. Many have found that once tension has been dealt with in the neck and shoulders, they find a deep calming and relaxation when receiving the facial and scalp massage.

 

Lomi-Lomi (Kahuna) Massage

This style of massage has its roots in Huna - the ancient philosophy and teachings of Hawaii. Huna is not a religion, it means "secret", and Kahuna means "keeper of the secret". The Kahuna is the one who heals, using the secrets of these ancient teachings. Huna is a remarkably freeing experience that expresses itself in every moment and action of life, and it is celebrated with great joy as the receiver awakens to this healing process. Lomi Massage creates joy and a new deeper self awareness.

Lomi Massage is one of the more subtle healing arts, it is a gentle, flowing and yet a deeply healing process. It is a dance of celebration as the healer moves with the flow of energies and is inspired by the music of life. It intergrates mind, body and spirit with it's prayerful energy flow as well as creating a deep sense of meditation for both the giver and receiver.

Lomi Massage is done with the utmost respect and love, a love for healing, and an unconditional love for another Divine creation, the giver allows that love and respect to flow through his hands and into the body of the receiver. It is an unwritten language, and the giver allows his hands to speak and convey this message of healing love as he manipulates and brings about deep healing into the most complex of muscle groups.

It is a joyous celebration of the senses.

The giver works intuitively, being able to sense what lies beneath the skin, being aware of the Chakras and energies flowing through the body. As he begins to unblock certain restrictions, the receiver's body comes alive with a renewed energy flow and the healing process becomes transformational as they become submerged into the pleasures of healing.

Lomi massage is a full body massage healing process, sometimes the receiver will just wear a sarong, other times they prefer to be without the sarong so that they can feel the un-interrupted flow of the healing and the renewed energies.

 

Thai Yoga Massage

Thai Massage is also known as Nuad Bo-Rarn, it is an unique form of body therapy that has its roots dating back to ancient times. The taditional form of Thai Massage incorporates gentle rocking and deep stretching (of limbs, joints and back), as well as rythmic compression, so as to create a different massage experience.

Thai Massage is different from the tissue manipulation that everybody associates with typical massage. This massage is performed on the floor, fully clothed and no oils are used. This allows for many movements and procedures that are not practical for table work. Working on the floor allows the most effective use of the giver's body weight rather than muscular force used for this healing process.

Pressure points are used on energy lines (called "Sen") and is reminiscent of the meridians used in Chinese acupuncture. A lot of stretching movements are utilised increasing flexibility, releasing deep and superficial tension and also to help the body's energies flow more freely. Some of the movements are very similar to yoga, sometimes it is referred to as the "lazy man's yoga!"

Thai Massage can be done as a full body treatment, or part thereof. With the full body treatment the receiver will lie in four different positions to receive this healing - on their back, their sides, their front and also finally in a sitting position. The body is gently stretched into the different positions, but never forced. Care is taken by the giver who is very aware of the receiver's limitations.

It creates a sense of deep relaxation, releases tension in the entire body, improves circulation and promotes inner peace and quiet. As with any healing modality, one who is relaxed, open to growth and open to new experiences, will benefit the most. One who is rigid and possibly fearful,will benefit from this, but to a much lesser degree!

Hot Stone Bodywork

Also known as La Stone Bodywork, we use hot Basalt Stones in this treatment to aid in the relaxation of tired sore muscles and to detox problem areas. Often this healing modality is combined with Swedish Massage to enhance the healing process. After applying various massage techniques to relax and loosen muscles, hot stones are then used as a massage tool and clusters of stones placed on problem areas of the body. That part of the body is then covered with towels to maintain the warmth of the stones. Once the back has been attended to I then move on to the next problem area, at no time are you left lying with stones on your body, there is continual massage and bodywork so that complete healing takes place. As with Swedish Massage it is best to work on and unclothed body.

Crystal Grids & Chakra Balancing

Using various crystals, gem stones and energizers, a client's energies and Chakras are brought back into balance, giving a sense of wellbeing and peace. With the stresses of modern society, our energies become scattered, signals between the body and the brain get scrambled leading to disorder and illness. Some feel the benefits of this healing process immediately, others take a while and contemplate on what they received. I have found from experience that sometimes a body has to clear a lot of "junk and blockages" after a healing session before the energies can flow freely without hindrances. Then a day or two later the client gets a natural "buzz" as they feel this wonderful energy flow through their body, and they feel more confident and stronger.

 

 

“Here in this body are the sacred rivers, here are the sun and the moon, as well as the pilgrimage places.I have not encountered another temple as blissful as my own body.” ~ Sarah Doha
