What is Lomi Lomi?
Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, also known as is one part of traditional Native Hawaiian medicine and was only passed down in families until the early 1970s, when a few Hawaiian teachers began teaching this massage therapy technique to non-Hawaiians.
Lomi Lomi massage gives the traditional Hawaiian practice incorporating several relaxation techniques. It includes excellent massage practices, nut oils, deep breathing and elements of prayer. It works on the principle that memories are stored in every cell of the body. Nonetheless, it exceeds both the mind and the brain. Engaging both the body and spirit give a stress-relieving experience.
What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu is a manipulative therapy developed in Japan and incorporating techniques of anma (Japanese traditional massage), acupressure, stretching, and Western massage.

This therapy is considered holistic because it attempts to treat the whole person instead of a specific medical complaint.

What is Rolfing?
Rolfing is a system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education that organizes the whole body in gravity. Rolfing bodywork affects the body’s posture and structure by manipulating the myofascial system (connective tissue).
Often considered a deep-tissue approach, Rolfing bodywork actually works with all the layers of the body to ease strain patterns in the entire system. Research has demonstrated that Rolfing creates more efficient muscle use, allows the body to conserve energy, and creates more economical and refined patterns of movement.
Rolfing has also been shown to significantly reduce chronic stress, reduce spinal curvature in subjects with lordosis (sway back), and enhance neurological functioning.
What is Trager?
Trager Approach is based on the premise that discomfort, pain and reduced function are physical symptoms of accumulated tension that result from accidents, weak posture, fear, emotional blockages and daily stress. It focuses on reducing these unnatural patterns of movement and eliminating neuromuscular tension by using gentle, rhythmic rocking motions. These rhythmic movements can create a state of deep relaxation.
