Massage is the age-old therapy of body relaxation. Just as everything in our world is connected, massage puts us in touch with our personal unity through experience with a healing practice. The various methods of massage share a common heart and root: Listening Hands – the hands of a healer that balances a body’s optimal homeostasis.

Neuromuscular Therapy
NMT, Neuromuscular Therapy works with the attachments and insertions of the muscles in a very strategic way to release muscle ischemia. The application of pressure to the trigger points, helps to release the restricted tissue and increase circulation. This effective massage technique is often prescribed for injuries and chronic conditions. Through the softening of trigger points, NMT aims to reduce chronic pain, increase range of motion, and correct postural distortions.
 
Lomi Lomi level 1 and 2
Lomi Lomi, traditional Hawaiian massage, uses mostly the palms, forearms, knuckles elbows, and stones. Though Lomi Lomi varied from family to family, it was commonly referred to as “praying” work. It is a very fluid work, flowing with gentle pressure through the muscles in smooth, soothing strokes.
The early Polynesian settlers brought their own form of massage to the South Pacific Islands of Hawaii and it evolved to become something uniquely Hawaiian. It was practiced by everyone, from child to chief. As an indigenous practice that evolved over hundreds of years in isolated valleys throughout the island chain, there are many different “schools” of Lomi Lomi with different approaches and techniques.
 
Pregnancy Massage

  • improvement of nerve pain, sciatica
  • reduced muscle tension and headaches

Hot Stone
The application of hot stones helps to quicken the process of opening the deeper tissues. Heat softens the soft tissues and raises relaxation to another level and comfort.
 
Reflexology
Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving applying pressure to the feet, hands and ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. It is based on the belief that a system of zones and reflex areas reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands affecting a physical change to the body.
Swedish Massage
Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing joint stiffness and pain correlated with it. It has shown to improve function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation.*Kristy Marie takes the modular tools she has learned and combines them in an intuitive way to best suit each client’s needs.
