I offer therapeutic healing and/or relaxation massage, utilising any or all of the following techniques, which will be customised to your individual needs and preferences:
Trigger Point Therapy
Thai massage, also known as Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.
Thai massages can be like a mini-workout so they are best for people who have had massages in the past but want to try something different! Thai massage is an incredibly effective, energizing treatment where your therapist will use techniques like deep stretching, acupressure and yoga style positions to give you a really intense massage. Thai massage is really good for you if you have a lot of muscle tension, posture problems, or headaches caused by bad posture.
LOMI LOMI MASSAGE
Lomi Lomi Massage is a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques and oils, and also spiritual elements such prayer and meditative breathing to restore energy and soothe the body.
Lomi lomi works from the belief that memories are not just stored in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension. It consists of broad, flowing strokes made with the therapist’s fingers, thumbs, palms, arms and elbows.
Cupping is a great modality that can be added on to your massage or done as a therapy on its own. Whereas traditional massage uses pressure against the tissues to break up adhesions and increase the flow of fluids, Cupping does this with the opposite action; pulling up of the tissue, creating space between the tissues to encourage blood flow and trigger the healing mechanism.
Additionally, in Eastern philosophy this is believed to increase the flow of Chi and break up stagnation in the body.
It may be done with either static cups, in which the cups are attached and left in one place for 10-15 minutes, or slide cupping in which the therapist glides the cups along the areas of the body being treated.
REIKI ENERGY HEALING
Reiki is a form of hands on healing, with its origins in India and the East dating back many thousands of years to the time before Christ and Buddha. The original name, disciplines and techniques of Reiki were lost due to the traditional method of passing knowledge from generation to generation by word of mouth. Exactly when this ancient art of healing disappeared is difficult to determine. However, we do know that it was rediscovered by a Japanese Scholar and monk name Dr Mikao Usui. It was in fact Dr Usui who fashioned the name REIKI. Reiki is a two syllable Japanese word meaning universal life force. Rei means universal, omnipresent – present everywhere at the same time. Esoterically Rei means spiritual consciousness, the omniscient wisdom from God or the higher self.
Ki is the non physical vitality that gives life to all living things. Many cultures understand and recognise the importance of Ki energy and how it impacts our lives and well-being.
Ki energy can be activated for the purpose of healing. When you feel healthy and full of enthusiasm, the flow of Ki energy in your body is high and unencumbered. Life seems easier to deal with and you have a higher resistance to illness and disease. However, when your Ki energy is low because maybe you are under stress or feeling unhappy and tired you will be more susceptible to disease and sickness. Your attitude will be generally negative and you will find it difficult to deal with life’s challenges.
Reiki is holistic; it works on the body mind and spirit by stimulating a person’s own natural healing abilities. The blocked emotional and physical elements that lead to illness and disease are cleared. Reiki is neither positive nor negative; it is in fact the highest and most profound vibration of life. Divine in origin, it allows us all to become one with all things alive in our world. Reiki is pure unconditional love and joy bringing all who experience and embrace its principles together in harmony. Regular contact with Reiki will bring the recipients mind body and spirit into balance. It will also help prevent future creation of illness and disease.
How Reiki Works:
The human body is made up of over 50 trillion cells. Each cell contains omniscient wisdom and is connected to the universe and every living thing within it. A good analogy is to think of the universe as a huge ocean of water. Every living thing within that ocean is like a tiny droplet. Together these droplets make up and are part of Reiki the universal life force.
Reiki is part of our genetic structure. An in built intelligence that energises the mind body and spirit. Reiki stimulates growth, health, life and healing. When it is freely allowed to flow around the body it can keep us alive and healthy for over one hundred and twenty years. Unfortunately, bad habits and poor choices result in the flow of Reiki being stifled. It is important to note that Reiki cannot be destroyed. Even when we die and the life force leaves our body it continues to exist as part of the universe. Through neglect and ignorance we abuse this vital component of life.
When the mind body and spirit are in harmony the biological intelligence that governs the body’s resources and allows it to heal itself and function correctly are intensified. Reiki is the key that unlocks the body’s optimum capabilities. There are seven main energy centres in the body that control the flow of the universal life force. They are called the Chakras. Each chakra is responsible for supplying energy to specific parts of the body. When they are blocked or clogged the body becomes sick and the flow of energy is diluted.
A full Reiki treatment reopens the chakras and re-balances the flow of the universal life force around the body. A person will normally need four full treatments on four consecutive days to boost the flow of Reiki energy. This will stimulate the body’s immune system and natural healing abilities. Normally the body will begin by cleansing itself of toxins. As the poisons are removed, the body becomes re-balanced and the healing process can begin.
NEW PARADIGM MDT
New Paradigm MDT is another method of energy healing that, like Reiki, also can be done with either a gentle laying on of hands or placing of the hands in the auric field, and also by distance healing.
As described on the New Paradigm MDT website:
“New Paradigm MDT is a system that is transformational, assisting people to become free from fear, to step into their power and live more and more from their true essence. This transformation has a healing effect on the individual and as a spin-off of that makes it possible for them to pass on energies that have a healing impact on others. This healing effect can be on a physical level, an emotional level and a psychological level.
The essence of New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Transformation is love without conditions and respect for all life forms. We recognize the Divine energy that created the entire universe with all life forms and that we are an intrinsic part of that same Creation.
The energies we work with are unconditional love & light healing energies from Source, directed through the diamond “body” of the collective consciousness of the Ascended and Galactic Masters.”
