Are you feeling sore? Is your back, neck or joints hurting? Do you need to Relax? … Then you have come to the right place!
Aloha Dreaming Massage is based on Hawaiian Lomi Lomi techniques. I love this style of massage because it is so thorough in relieving muscle aches and inducing relaxation. It truly feels great! It is a rhythmical and sometimes deep massage. There are long flowing strokes that feel like waves rolling over the body. Then there are more focused movements, that you will feel more considerably, especially if you request a firmer massage. Clients are always asked what kind of pressure they want on a scale of 1 to 10. This is only a gage and ultimately can be changed up or down. I am not a proponent of no pain- no gain. I prefer to work a troublesome area and then leave it and come back as often as is needed until I feel a release. It is sort of like peeling the layers of an onion. As I continuously work the whole body, the muscles start to become less and less contracted, the pain eases, and the recipient becomes more relaxed. Gentle stretches are incorporated to help elongate tight muscles and mobilise the joints. No jerky or abrupt movements are used. Again, this massage works gently but deeply into the muscles using continuous flowing strokes totally nurturing the whole body. You leave feeling rejuvenated not battered.
I also embrace the Hawaiian philosophy of looking at things in terms of energy flow, following the idea that an idea or belief can also block energy flow as much as muscle tension can. Lomi Lomi style massage helps release blockages, whilst at the same time giving energy a new direction. Thus, this massage is not just a physical experience; it can also facilitate healing on the mental, emotional and spiritual level as well. My clients often say they feel lighter, taller and freer upon leaving.
Aloha Dreaming Massage has healing qualities that can help counteract the effects of today’s modern life – the under use and overuse of our bodies. It can aid in restoring health and the recovery from injuries. It is also the perfect fitness medicine because you do not have to hurt to use it.
