Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage: Hawaiian Lomilomi Massage is one of the most profound forms of massage. It is a unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healers of Hawaii. One of the meanings of Lomilomi is ‘loving hands’ as it works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and enabling the receiver to relax, give in and simply be. This treatment helps to release any energy blockages within the body and assists in balancing the physical, mental and emotional well-being. It has been described as the feeling of gentle waves moving over the body and one of the many features is that different parts of the body will be massaged at the same time. This assists the receiver into a deeper state of relaxation as it is difficult for the brain to focus on two different areas at once. It is a very caring massage in that you are treated with love, respect and compassion.

Due to the nature of this treatment, paper pants will be provided. Alternatively please wear small old pants which are ok if they become a little covered in oil. Comfortable clothing is required for wearing at the end of the treatment. As the whole body is treated at the same time most of the body will be uncovered but sensitive/private areas will be covered and protected by sarongs. Not suitable during pregnancy. 90 minute full body treatment only available to females, 45 minute back of body treatment available to both males and females.

Thai Yoga Massage: Thai Yoga Massage is a beautiful and ancient massage therapy and healing art that has been part of traditional Eastern medicine for many many years. Traditional Eastern medicine is seen as being much more preventative, than curative (as our Western system is) and encourages good self-care as a means to keep ourselves healthy and free from illness and dis-ease. It works applying a firm, grounding pressure along the bodies main energy lines (nadis/ inner rivers) —the Ten Sen—through which the body's natural life force flows. Blockages in this life force can cause aches, pains, stiffness, lack of energy and disease. Using hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure to important points on the energy lines, together with gentle stretching and applied Hatha Yoga to open the body, blocked energy is able to release and this frees the body's healing potential, restoring balance and harmony. It is normal to feel both deeply grounded and nourished and with a light sense of wellbeing after a treatment (like doing a good yoga class, the lazy way!

Originating in India and linked to Buddhism (often practiced by monks in the temples), Thai Yoga Massage is a meditative experience. It is said to be the physical application of loving kindness. Available as a 60 minute targeted treatment or as a 90 minute or 2 hour full body treatment. Can also be complemented by the addition of a heated herbal ball containing lots of amazing fresh herbs including ginger and galangal which when heated is used on the energy lines increases relaxation.

Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage: Chi Nei Tsang is an ancient Taoist massage treatment focusing primarily on the abdomen and internal organs. Chi means energy, and Nei Tsang means organs, Chi Nei Tsang literally means “working the energy of the internal organs”, or “internal organs chi transformation”, and both detoxifies old stagnant energies, and brings in fresh new energy for greater vitality, energy and health. We all carry a surprising amount of tension in our abdomen, either from habitual shallow breathing; accumulated toxins; diet; lack of sufficient movement; unprocessed emotions etc, that restrict blood and energy (chi) flow. In the Taoist traditions and practices our main organs (liver, heart, kidneys, spleen etc) are said to hold both physical and emotional tensions which are influencing both our physical and emotional health and wellbeing. There are a lot of emerging scientific studies currently about the importance of our gut health, and the relationship between gut health and mental health. This is an excellent treatment as a detox release, and as part of a regular self-care practice to maintain your health, vitality, energy levels and even youthfulness. This treatment can be practiced on the floor in the traditional way or on a massage bed can be completed with the addition of a heated herbal ball containing lots of amazing fresh herbs including ginger and galangal which when heated is used on the energy lines increases relaxation.

Cranial Sacral Flow is a very gentle but deeply supportive bodywork treatment, utilising light touch to palpate and listen to the inner rhythms & patterns of your body. It supports your body’s innate ability to balance, re-integrate, restore and heal itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and build underlying energy. It is suitable for everyone, including the elderly. Working between the cranium (head) and the sacrum it seeks to regulate the flow of cranial sacral fluid (& life force ) through the spinal channel (which you can poetically liken to the healthy flow of sap throughout the stem of a plant.). Although it is called cranial-sacral therapy, it is actually working on your whole body and system (in the same way that a healthy functioning plant stem carries its energy and nutrition to all the leaves and other parts of the whole plant).It is thought to relieve compression in the head, neck, and back; to soothe pain and release both emotional and physical stress and tension. It’s also thought to help restore cranial mobility and ease or release restrictions of the head, neck, nerves and nervous system. During a treatment session hands are placed lightly on different areas of your cranium and body, and are used to listen to you, in much the same way that a counsellor might listen to your words. Your body responds to this sensitive touch by beginning to listen to itself. A feeling that you have been heard in the truest sense of the word is a common experience during and after a Cranial-Sacral Flow session. It may be part of your treatment for conditions like: migraines and headaches, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) & women’s cycles, disturbed sleep cycles and insomnia, Scoliosis, sinus infections, neck pain, fibromyalgia, recurrent ear infections or colic in infants, trauma recovery, including trauma from whiplash, mood disorders like anxiety or depression.
