Remedial, Relaxation, Pregnancy and Sports Massage and Lymphatic Drainage
Remedial massage is a specific body working style that focuses on the assessment of bodies, observing changes over time and creating treatments tailored to the presenting complaints.
Remedial encourages the healing of injured soft tissue, such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. To achieve this a mechanical action must be created by moving the muscles, fascia and other soft tissues of the body around, using a collection of stretching techniques such as: trigger point work, joint mobilisation, myofascial release, deep tissue techniques and also a selection of home-care stretches and strengthening exercises that will increase the speed of recovery.
Beyond a physical level, Remedial massage works in reduction of stress, alleviation of anxiety and evokes positive emotional releases by stimulating the autonomic nervous system, which in return slows breathing, reduces our heart-rate and eases digestive processes.
Not only does Remedial Massage provokes experiences of being nurtured and grounded, it can also provide specific treatments such as:
– Sports massage – enhances pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance.
– Pregnancy massage – reducing general pregnancy: aching neck, heavy pelvic bone, leg cramps and swelling of the ankles and feet.
– Lymphatic drainage massage – gentle, rhythmical massage treatment that stimulates circulation of lymph fluid which rapidly speeds the removal of wastes and toxins and boosts your immune system.
Lomilomi is a healing massage that is deeply nurturing and relaxing. It takes place in a warm room. Using organic coconut oil and long, rhythmical strokes over and under the body which are said to emulate the swell of the ocean, this massage technique encourages the body to open up and naturally release deeply held tensions, of a physical, mental, spiritual and energetic nature.
As the mind and body deepen into a state of receptivity, the conscious mind is able to access collective and universal information, promoting inner shifts and heightened awareness to occur in a safe and gentle way.
It is in this deep space, that healing at the cellular level can occur. As the body relaxes further, the brain waves are altered to theta and sometimes to delta where the body’s innate capacity to heal is naturally activated. It is a beautiful process that offers a luxurious and wholesome experience.
Our Lomilomi massage therapist Franca provides professional counselling support before and after each massage thus allowing each session to be wholly meaningful and integrated. Her massages have been described as unique, spiritual, deeply relaxing and transformative.
