Lomilomi is an ancient healing art that has been passed down by the master practitioners (kahuna) and elders (kupuna) bearers of light, love and knowledge. This exquisite gift has been passed down from generation to generation amongst the natives of the Hawaiian Islands.
Components of this healing practice include prayer (pule), breath (ha), massage, and movement of energy (mana). All of these combined with the loving intention of the practitioner create a healing experience that is at once profound and deep. This art is the practice of lovingly and mindfully massaging the client as though they are a beloved family member (ohana). Appropriate for all ages, Lomilomi facilitates the bridging of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being and harmony (lokahi).
Smooth stones are heated and lubricated with oil or essential oils. The therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. Used as an extension of the therapist's hands, the stones induce deep relaxation and provide a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering.
Ever just wish someone would step on your back? Shiatsu uses natural body weight to reach deeply into knots and tight muscles to create long- lasting relief. Its un-invasive, clothes-on techniques makes this a great choice for your first massage, and it’s an all-time favourite for seasoned spa-goers.
Suitable for pregnancy.
Indian Head Massage
An Ayurvedic massage that focuses on everything from the upper back, to the face and scalp. It has an incredible list of benefits, including relieving headaches, releasing upper body tension, easing anxiety and reducing insomnia.
During the treatment, you are seated comfortably in a regular chair, and aromatic oil is used on your shoulders, arms, neck, face, and scalp.
You may choose to wear a tank top so Sheila has access to your upper back, and have a hat ready for after your treatment, as your hair can be oily! If not, adjustments can be made: you can request less to no oil, and we can provide warm towels to wrap you up in in lieu of a tank top!
