tension while the cold stones help reduce tissue swelling. However, if

Hawaiian Sacred Lomi
Hawaiian Sacred Lomi is a 2-hour treat, Hawaiian
style. Ask for Lomi Lomi (massage in Hawaiian) and you may receive
anything from a hands-on, kneading-style session to Reiki or another
type of energy work. Hawaiian Sacred Lomi is a full-body massage
using oil. Using my forearms, I can vary pressure to glide over bones
and sink into muscles. While lying on your stomach, I can massage
your abdomen and while lying on your back, I can massage underneath
your back. This lifting and gently letting down of the body
facilitates muscle and joint relaxation. Time is given for you to be
ready to return to the world.
Gentle pressure coaxes restrictions between
bones. Fluid flow is restored to restricted areas of your body to aid
in healing of various problems. Chronic fatigue, arthritis,
scoliosis, post-surgery dysfunctions, headaches and fibromyalgia all
are helped with this technique. Clients remain clothed and lie in
repose on a massage table during this hour-long session.
On-site Chair Massage
Chair massage is a short-duration treat available
for small parties (groups of 8-20 people). A specially-designed chair
provides a comfortable, safe position to receive clothed massage for
head, neck, shoulders and back. Sessions are 10-30 minutes in
Bamboo Massage has
recently been added to the list of types of massage I offer at my office.
The pressure can be
as deep or soft as
you like it while delivering the results we all crave from massage.
Various types of tools and techniques are used to get into those
troubling, tight areas we all have in our muscles. The warmth of the
bamboo also works well through thin clothing and can be easily
incorporated into Thai Massage or chair massage sessions. Susan finds
bamboo massage more
beneficial and enjoyable to
receive than hot stones!
As with any massage, there can be individual health concerns that may
prohibit you from receiving this type of massage. Susan is happy to
discuss these with you.

Thai Massage/Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Massage, or Thai Yoga Massage,
is a blend of reflexology, palm pressing, stretching and a system of
energy lines similar to the ayurvedic system. You are clothed and
lying or sitting on a cushioned mat on the floor.
The intent of Thai Massage is to
affect the energy body and physical body together. It is performed in
a meditative state and is meant to allow you to be in a meditative
state. It is an opportunity to unite with the stillness within.
Clothing: Clothing must be
comfortable and loose enough to move and bend your body. Long
pants are recommended.
Some yoga postures are used in this
type of massage. You donít have to be an athlete or exercise
enthusiast to receive Thai Massage. Your body has limits; those
limits are respected when you are stretched and moved into position.
It may be necessary to check in with you frequently during your first
session until I am accustomed to your individual body structure.
Session length: Sessions
can be 1 hour, 1-1/2 hours to 2 hours.
