Applying just about a dime’s weight, 5 ounces, of pressure on the cranium and long holds along the body, engages the body into stillness, where the practitioner can identify movement of inertia or congestion and thus apply appropriate soft palpable therapy. It's through the spinal fluid that helps align the body, moving in a rhythmic fluid motion. The cranium connected to the sacrum via the spinal column is surrounded by the cerebral spinal fluid and nervous system all working to disseminate the cranial wave throughout the body for optimal operation. A very meditative practice allowing the client to rest and reset its bodies nervous system. Helpful with people suffering from migraines, sciatica, PTSD, post-surgical symptoms and both physical and emotional trauma.
Deep Tissue/Connective Tissue Therapy/NMT
All structures in the body are surrounded, protected and supported by connective tissue. The skeletal and soft tissues like muscles, tendons and organs are connected, bound and compartmentalized by this continuous sheath. Deep tissue massage focuses on lengthening and manipulating the fascia with medium to deep pressure with long strokes returning the tissue to its natural state. Using developed tactile and kinesthetic awareness, neuromuscular therapy (NMT) is complimentary to deep tissue massage in that tightly bound fascia or “knots” would be addressed.
Lomi lomi is the traditional Hawaiian massage using continuous flowing strokes along the body. Experience having more than one part of the body massaged at a time with pressure from forearms. All Lomi lomi massages come with complimentary hot stone on the back and neck unless otherwise advised. The pace changes throughout the massage, leaving the client unaware where the next movement will be, resulting in the client to give in, relax and simply be.
