Therapeutic Relaxation Massage
Sara-Jane has been a Massage therapist for 18 years with ongoing training in many different styles of Massage Therapy, including Thai Massage, Remedial Massage, Myofascial Release Therapy, Craniosacral therapy, Ka Huna Massage, Lymphatic drainage and Energy Therapy.
Her unique style has evolved, incorporating skills gained from experience and training, to offer a deeply relaxing, therapeutic and restorative massage.
Sara-Jane utilizes remedial massage with myo-fascial and cranio-sacral techniques to release physical tension and emotional trauma. She has a firm therapeutic touch combined with a sensitivity and softness which is ideal for a Therapeutic Relaxation Massage.
Ka Huna Massage
Ka huna massage originated in the South Pacific and was used during Rites of Passage as a transformational massage and healing system. It is also known as Hawaiian Temple Style massage and Lomi Lomi.
This beautiful form of bodywork provides a holistic approach to healing by balancing the body-mind in its physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions.
Sara-Jane uses her hands, forearms and elbows and moves around the table using flowing Hula and Tai Chi movements. She works with energy to apply soft and deep tissue massage to the whole body. Music is played and Sara-Jane attunes the flow of the massage to harmonize the various rhythms within the clients body, mind & spirit.
The craniosacral system encompasses the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. Few structures have as much influence over the body's ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord that make up the central nervous system.
Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. Craniosacral therapy uses a light touch and gentle unwinding techniques to penetrate deep into the central nervous system, releasing long-standing patterns of tension and emotional trauma.
AromaTouch Massage Technique is a clinical approach to applying essential oils. Dr. David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic application of essential oils, developed the AromaTouch technique.
AromaTouch Massage improves wellbeing by reducing physical and emotional stressors and supports healthy autonomic function. The technique uses dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience.
Unlike traditional Aromatherapy Massage, the AromaTouch Massage Technique utilizes eight specific essential oils and blends to promote relaxation and stress relief, offer immune support, decrease pain and inflammation and elevate mood. Essential oils applied along energy lines and on reflexology points stimulate homeostasis and balance in the body.
Energy therapy it is a gentle, hands-on-healing technique for re-balancing life force energy, stress reduction and relaxation to promote healing.
It is based on the understanding that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. It supports your healing process on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Lymphatic Massage is a gentle massage to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph from the body tissue. The technique is light with gentle pressure mobilising fluid toward the lymphatic nodes, with varying degrees of pressure in the areas of the chest, neck, pelvis, armpit and groin region.
Most people are familiar with the body's blood vessel system that carries blood to and from the tissues, but few understand there is another equally vital system of vessels that removes cell wastes, proteins, excess fluid, viruses and bacteria.
Lymphatic Massage is beneficial for edema in ankles and legs, skin conditions, improving immunity, liver function and in pregnancy. Through its gentle rhythmical movement, it works to alleviate pain and provide relaxation of the sympathetic nervous system helping with stress.
Hot Stones Massage
Adding Hot Stones to a Therapeutic Relaxation Massage offers a deeper and more grounded treatment. Heat has long been used to ease muscle tension and pain. It helps increase blood flow and reduce muscle spasms.
Sara-Jane has collected the stones from the South Coast of Australia- naturally smooth from the elements and pure in energy from the Tasman Sea.
