DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE:
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper Layer of muscle tissue also called connective tissue.
It aims to release the persistent patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger, hand and forearm pressure on the tight areas,either going across or following the fibers of the muscles,fascia and tendons.
TRADITIONAL BALINESE MASSAGE:
This traditional Balinese massage has been passed down from generation to generation to alleviate stress and and loosen muscles using ancestral balinese massage techniques.
Hand healing techniques of skin rolling, long kneading strokes, acupressure, and reflexology, are applied combined with a blend of essential oils and specially selected herbs to keep muscles warm. This simulates the lymphatic system and improves blood circulation and the flow of ‘Qi’ (energy) in your body.
LOMI LOMI NUI:
Also know as hawaiian temple style. It’s one of the most profound forms of healing massage, and can induce states of meditation, and blissful feelings of floating outside the body.
In this unique, flowing and oil-based bodywork, long and fluid rhythmic strokes are used over the whole body with the hands, fingers, forearms and elbows, applying soft and deep tissue massage. The practitioner moves around the table in a dance-like movement. The rhythm is very relaxing and blissful, with strokes from the neck down to the foot. These movements simulate Hawaiian waves, lapping on the shores, and will transport you gently to a warm place inside your self. This clears, nurtures and relaxes you, and is highly beneficial to the muscular, circulatory, lymphatic, immune and digestive systems. It works gently but deeply on muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and enabling you to relax, bringing the joy of life to your body and a feeling of presence and peace to your mind.
