essence of each person. Rose, lavender and sandalwood (to name
a few) create a special bond.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is fairly common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins which have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Lomi Lomi - comes from Hawaii and basically it means to heal
through love. Very long and soothing strokes it uses breath
and intention to go deeper. I went to Hawaii to study with
Kolleen Kohlrus for a 10 day long intensive to experience
the power and grace of LomiLomi; Hawai'is traditional healing art.
I have also studied with Barbara Helyn Heard teaching Mana Lomi Level I,
clinically focused lomilomi, it uses a clinical problem solving approach.
Hawaiian concepts of working with the body, mind and spirit.
Mana Lomi is gentle yet deep, and gives immediate and long-
term results. Mana Lomi Level II, with Marcia York, covers
low back pain, neck and shoulder discomfort, headaches,tennis
elbows, sciatica, and sprained ankles.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into the feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
Stone Therapy is a type of bodywork that uses deep penetrating heat and/or alternating cold from specialized stones. The physiological benefits of alternating hot and cold to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven.
Stone Therapy delivers a profound expansion and contraction inside your circulatory system, improving the function of your lymphatic and immune systems, and enhancing your body’s self-healing mechanisms. This style of bodywork takes you into deep states of relaxation, releasing stress and anxiety, detoxifying the body, and balancing your nervous system.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
