Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage is based on Swedish Therapeutic Massage techniques including Remedial and Deep Tissue Massage as well as Relaxation Massage. Therapeutic massage covers the main areas of the body including back, neck, head, arms, legs and feet. It involves using a range of pressure with aromatherapy oils to ease muscle tension and pain by smoothing knotted muscle fibres and improving circulation to the muscles and nerves.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation masssage is a holistic form of massage that balances and connects the whole body through releasing tension and blocks, and improving overall circulation.  Relaxation massage is about blissing out, letting go and allowing an opportunity to release tension and stress. Choose deep or light pressure according to your liking. With Relaxation massage, this is time for yourself. Expect to be nurtured and leave feeling rejuvenated and more connected to yourself again.

Holistic Pulsing

Holistic Pulsing is a gentle relaxing rhythmic bodywork that involves rocking the body with its own momentum to balance the body and release blockages. Holistic pulsing particularly resonates with the water element in our body and is therefore very cleansing to our circulation. It's also deeply nourishing to the nervous system, allowing a deep release of tension and naturally aligning the spine.


Reflexology is pressure point massage on the feet and hands that stimulates and tones the rest of the body through reflexes in the nervous and musculoskeletal system. This can be incorporated into a general massage or experienced on its own.

Energy Balancing

Energy balancing is a relaxing and more subtle form of bodywork involving connection and alignment to the cranialsacral fluid that nourishes the cranium, spine and nervous system. It also looks at circulation and flow of energy through the whole body, particularly observing blockages or areas of congestion. Through the session my hands are gently held around the body at the head, neck, joints and feet, or gently rocking the body to encourage attention to these areas and to allow the release of blockages or trauma held in the cellular memory.

Romiromi traditional Māori healing

Romiromi is a traditional Māori form of deep tissue bodywork using pressure points over clothes to deeply cleanse and release toxins at a cellular level. With respect to Māori Tikanga we honour the ancestors, the earth and elements, and our family as we clear old patterns and energy that are ready to be released. Allow 2 hours.
