Massage is an extension of touch, given with an intention of relaxation, respite, release and overall, care.
It can be given through clothes or with oil onto bare skin.
Massage can be received seated, lying on a massage couch, on the floor, side lying, prone (on your front) and supine (on your back).
There are many styles and modalities of massage from all around the world; some are fast and powerful, some slow and strong, some dance like, some light and mesmerising.
Hawaiian Lomi Lomi uses forearms as well as hand massage techniques to enhance deep connection; encouraging you back into your right condition, whilst feeling massaged to the bone and soothed to your heart.
Some styles will massage your whole body in one stroke, others utilise a deep, fixed pressure point to release stuck energy.
Massage should have a depth, rhythm and pace that works with your own unique body and headspace, allowing you to focus inwards, experience deeper and deeper relaxation.
Your massage session is guided by how you feel right then, what needs you have expressed and always with your stated intention in mind.
