HAWAIIAN LOMILOMI MASSAGE – 1 hour
Lomilomi is a gentle, graceful, rhythmic massage. The Hawaiians look at things in terms of energy flow – following the notion that an idea or belief can block energy flow as much as muscle tension can. Lomilomi helps release the blockages, while at the same time giving the energy new direction. It uses long continuous, flowing strokes, combined with a very loving touch, which relaxes the entire being, assisting in a letting go of old beliefs, patterns and behaviours that cause limitations which are stored in the cells of your body. Lomilomi is a unique physical experience which facilitates healing on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels. It’s a wonderful alternative to deep therapeutic massage.
FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY (TM) – LEVEL II – 1 hour
Fascial Stretch Therapy (TM) is a table-based, facilitated stretching system for the entire body. It is a complementary modality to all other training, workout systems and forms of bodywork. We use assisted stretching to work the fascia (connective tissue) of the body and optimize the range of movement available through the joint capsules working in sync with the breath and the body.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE – 1 hour
Thai Massage is an ancient form of body therapy dating back 2500 years. It gently stretches and opens the body by incorporating yoga, shiatsu and acupressure along with techniques of gentle rocking, pressing, kneading, stretching & compression. You will be placed in a series of yoga postures while receiving pressure point massage. It works primarily on your legs, back, neck & shoulders. Thai Massage encourages the body to heal itself by releasing muscle tension, increasing flexibility and circulation and stimulating the release of endorphins.
