the deeper layers of the muscle and fascia. Elbows and fingers are used
as well as hands and forearms to release muscle tension and chronic

Lomi Lomi Nui- Hawaiian Temple Massage
Developed over centuries and practised within a wider spiritual tradition of the Hawaiian islands, this highly revered art of healing works on the premise that physical illness is the result of suppressed emotion or spiritual disharmony and that negative thoughts and obstructive patterns of behaviour have deleterious effect on the muscles and tissues of the body. While relieving musculoskeletal discomfort the body's energies are brought into balance. Unlike any other body treatment Lomi Lomi Nui makes full use of forearms and the entire body is massaged simultaneously in a continuous, flowing movement, with a generous use of heated oils. Most of the body is exposed during the treatment while the recipient's modesty is maintained by a towel. Lomi Lomi Nui will help to combat stress, anger and anxiety. The treatment will leave you elated, relaxed yet energized and connected for days to come.
Otherwise known as foot reflex or zone therapy, this popular form of treatment works on the principle that there are refelex areas in the feet that correspond to all glands and organs in the body. In other words the whole body structures are mapped on the feet (as well as hands and ears) and that by using pressure on a reflex, imbalances can be effectively treated. To work on a reflex is to activate the reason for having a symptom. Reflexology promotes the state of relaxation and wellbeing and is best suited for functional disorders, headaches, digestive problems, stress related conditions and hormonal imbalances.
