Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage

The word Lomi Lomi simply means massage. What it is, is a unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healers of Hawaii. To understand the depth of Lomi Lomi massage, it helps to have an understanding of the Hawaiian philosophy called Huna, and how the philosophies of Huna relate to bodywork and healing. A fundamental assumption of Huna is that everything seeks harmony and everything seeks love. Perhaps this can best be understood by one of the alternate names for Lomi Lomi, and that is "Loving Hands" massage. The reason for this is that it works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and, enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be. The focus of the practitioner is on the client, using loving hands and a loving heart.

Tibetan Singing Bowls

The theory and practice revolving around the Bowls involves energy balancing, clearing perception, chakra healing, invocation, prayer, and offering. The Bowls seem to have a particularly healing effect by massaging, in a sense, the subtle energy channels of the light body in a way that relaxes both body and mind, restoring a peaceful balance to the individual in relation to the environment, and heightening awareness.

 

Tingshas

The small cymbals are made of blended metals, just like the singing bowls. The sound of the Tingshas is like a summons. It brings us to the here and now. In meditation, tingshas are used to indicate the beginning and the end. At the beginning you let go of everything except the clean moment of here and now; at the end you awaken physically and spiritually in the here and now of material reality. Tingshas are also used to clear the energy present in a room and "open" it by sounding the tingshas in the four corners of a room.

Reiki

Reiki, a Japanese form of touch therapy, is a gentle massage style that channels healing energy through the laying on of hands, usually beginning at the head and traveling down through the body's seven "chakras," or energy centers. The "ki" in "Reiki" is the familiar "chi" energy that is at the center of so many healing practices. Reiki is thought to be valuable for everyday stress management, as well as to promote healing of diseases and is very relaxing. Reiki seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced. Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.

Thai

During a Thai massage, the practitioner generally uses both the hands and feet to apply gentle pressure with compression and rocking movements as you lie on a floor mat, using pressure points that are similar to Shiatsu acupressure. Thai massage might be also thought of as "passive yoga," because in addition to the acupressure, the practitioner adjusts your body into a series of stretches that balance the body's energy flow, relieve joint and muscle tension, and stimulate the internal organs for good health. Thai massage actually originated in India, where it was part of the ancient healing philosophy known as Ayurveda.

Reflexology

According to the principles behind Reflexology, the hands and feet contain points of connection with every muscle group and organ in the body. Therefore, by applying massage and pressure to those points, reflexologists can offer whole-body treatments while working directly on only the hands and feet. Reflexology is believed to align energy flow and increase the body's natural ability to heal itself.

 

 

 

Swedish Massage Therapy

This is the most common type of massage therapy in the United States. Massage therapists use long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil. Swedish massage therapy can be very gentle and relaxing.

Neuromuscular Therapy

(NMT) was made popular by Paul St. John and it is a massage modality that focuses on the treatment of trigger points. Trigger points are painful points located within taut bands of muscle and are treated primarily with the application of sustained, usually static pressure. Sometimes this is referred to as ischemic pressure and can vary from very light to heavy depending on the stage of development of the trigger point.

Through the softening of trigger points, NMT aims to reduce chronic pain, increase range of motion, and correct postural distortions.
