Cupping is a therapy used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to remove stagnation and stimulate the flow of qi (chi). Qi is the free flow of vital energy circulating through the body and the world around us, if the qi is disrupted or disturbed, it can create stagnation (blockages) or imbalances in the body such as pain.
Cupping works by drawing impurities to the surface and removing toxins. From a Western physiology perspective, cupping loosens connective tissue or fascia and stimulated blood flow to the surface.
Cupping will often leave marks that will disappear between 2- 14 days depending on level of stagnation.
Perfect for anyone that loves heat as this promotes a deeper muscle relaxation to the treatment.

Lomi lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage also as the 'loving hands' massage. This name helps to explain its principles - the massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing 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 and 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 behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
The traditional draping method for this modesty towel, to allow flowing strokes made with the therapist's fingers, thumbs, palms, arms and elbows.
Oil used: Coconut

The theory of reflexology is that all the systems and organs of the whole body are mirrored in the feet.
The reflexologist simply works those reflected areas with their sensitive fingers, aiming to bring those areas back to balance and therefore aiding the body to work as well as it can.
Reflexology very much works on an individual basis, the reflexologist provides professional facilitation of your body’s own potential for well-being.
Practitioners of reflexology believe that areas of the feet and hands are connected to the internal organs and other parts of the body. For example, the tips of the toes are thought to be connected to the head and the brain, while the left foot is connected to the left-hand side of the body and the right foot to the right-hand side.
