What are the benefits of hot stone massage?
The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage. Hot stones expand blood vessels, which push blood and waste through the nervous system. This gives the body a sedative affect. Hot stone massage is a deep, healing massage technique enhances our awareness and brings us close to our true essence. This treatment is as beneficial and healing to client as well as the therapist.
In cases of muscular injury or inflammation, cool marble stones are used in place of the heated stones. This creates a thermo-therapeutic healing in the circulatory system, helping the body to detoxify and heal. The cool stones constrict blood vessels, which stimulates the nervous system by drawling blood and waste products along the body. By doing this, every cell in the body receives more nutrients and oxygen while removing waste through the lymphatic system.
Healing improvements occurs in clients who suffer from the following conditions: muscular aches, pains, sprains and strains.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage but is used to target knots and release chronic muscle tension. Other benefits include reducing inflammation and helping to eliminate scar tissue. The focus is on the deeper layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Deep tissue massage uses strokes across the grain of the muscles, not with the grain as in Swedish massage. The more intense movements and techniques such as deep finger pressure may be slightly uncomfortable and cause soreness that lasts a couple of days before resulting in the desired relaxation and pain relief.
Lomi Lomi Massage
Lomi lomi is a Hawaiian massage, also known as the "loving hands" massage. This name helps to explain its principles- the massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, following strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch.
Lomi Lomi works from the belief that memories are not just stored in the brain in mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviors, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
"lomi lomi" translates to "rub rub" in Hawaiian, and reflects the broad, flowing strokes made with the therapist’s fingers, thumbs, palms and arms and elbows. macadamia, palm and coconut oils are usually used as moisturizers in lomi lomi massage, to keep the strokes smooth and to nourish the skin.
What is lomi lomi massage good for?
Lomi Lomi aims to treat the body and mind as one whole being. It is thought to:
Release tension Assist blood and lymph flow Eliminate waste and stimulate toxins Rejuvenate the body Instill a sense of peace, harmony and well- being.
In Hawaii, lomi lomi is used to treat children with upset stomachs.
And sooth women in labour. A lomi-lomi therapist will not aim to heal themselves, but to be the facilitator for healing to enable healing to take place.
