Blissful Massage in Nelson

Take time out for yourself at my Nelson massage studio. Experience the magic and relaxation of massage therapy and Rongoā Māori. Leave feeling nourished and rested.

With over 20 years of experience in therapeutic massage and bodywork, I have developed an intuitive and nurturing style of massage. I honour the gifts that I have received in Te Ao Māori with respect to Ngā Ātua, that has enriched my massage and bodywork practice with a deeper sense of awareness, presence and care.

Through gentle healing touch, I encourage ease and deep relaxation, providing you with an opportunity to receive all that your body needs and to let go of tension and stress. Read about benefits of massage...

Available Nelson massage and bodywork treatments

Mirimiri ~ Rongoā Māori Massage

Mirimiri is a traditional Māori healing technique that involves massage with oil on the back, arms, legs, feet and neck.  Rongoā Māori is grounded in the tikanga, cultural understanding and practices of Te Ao Māori. With Rongoā Māori we address the deeper needs of the body, heart, mind and wairua spiritual aspect. Through nurturing mirimiri, karakia prayer, waiata sound therapy and deep listening we allow a space for healing, to release trauma and pain, reduce tension and stress held in the body and receive aroha from our source. Mirimiri massage incorporates intuitive, relaxing and therapeutic massage techniques, unique to your body's needs with the use aromatherapy oil blends. Choose 90 min or 60 min for your mirimiri massage session.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is a holistic form of massage that balances and connects the whole body through releasing tension and stress, and improving overall circulation.  Relaxation massage is about self care when you've been on the go for too long. This is an opportunity to bliss out, let go and unwind with caring, intuitive and nourishing therapeutic massage. Choose lighter or deeper pressure according to your needs. With Relaxation massage, this is time for yourself to receive and be supported with healing aromatherapy oil blends. Leave feeling rejuvenated and nurtured, feeling like yourself again. Choose 90 min or 60 min for a full body massage or 45 min, 30 min for back and neck/head massage.

Energy Balancing

Energy balancing is a relaxing and gentle form of bodywork to encourage more energy flow and circulation, and to allow the release of tension or trauma held in the body at a physical, emotional, or spiritual level. In an Energy balancing session I incorporate Microfascial unwinding, Angelic Reiki, Holistic Pulsing, Sound therapy (toning) and Craniosacral Therapy. Through deep listening and breathwork we make the connection to the body's deeper wisdom to balance and align the nervous system, fascia and craniosacral rhythm. Energy balancing is gentle to receive but powerful in its effect. This is a clothed session and my hands are gently held around the body at the head, neck, shoulders, joints and feet. Leave feeling grounded, renewed and more connected on all levels. This is a 60 min session.

Romiromi ~ Traditional Māori Bodywork

Romiromi is traditional Māori healing in the form of deep tissue bodywork using pressure points over clothes, both front and back of the body including the abdomen. Kawakawa rākau and intentional breathwork is used to deeply cleanse and release toxins at a cellular and spiritual level. With karakia prayer we are deeply held and supported by all the resources that are here for us. In respect to the kaupapa of Rongoā and Te Āo Māori we honour our tūpuna ancestors, Papatūānuku our earth mother, Ranginui our sky father and all their children. We honour our whānau and these relationships as we clear old patterns and energy that are ready to be released. Allow 2 hours.
