Our Massage Styles & techniques

It All Begins With Our Exclusive Deep Lomi Massage Style...

Deep Lomi Massage

It truly has to be experienced to be understood...

This is what separates us from just about any other massage experience you can find. Our Deep Lomi Massage is generous, lavish and extremely effective. It was created by our founder and it is constantly evolving as it is reimagined by our creative therapists.

Deep Lomi started with the relaxing full-body Hawaiian Lomi styles as a base for our massage and then we integrate the best massage techniques from all over the world. Including; traditional Thai Massage and Thai Yoga as well as techniques from various sports massage and relaxation response modalities.

Thai Massage

Shock and Awe meet Ooh and Ahh! 

 

Traditional Thai Massage consists of dynamic stretches combined with rhythmic compressions, gentle rocking motions, and breathwork. The dynamic Thai massage stretches and combined compressions balance your energy, calm your nervous system and help increase your range of motion as well as your capacity for muscular strength.

We offer floor-based Thai Yoga Massage sessions and we also integrate powerful Thai-Massage-based Stretching and Compression techniques into our table-based sessions in order to provide you with one of the most dynamic and effective massages possible.

Nurturing Touch

Nurturing Touch focuses on much more than muscular and neural physiology. It goes much deeper than therapeutic massage, incorporating various other healing modalities and energies. It is a much deeper level of touch. Slower, more luxurious and with more intentional communication that you are important, safe, and deserving of relaxation.

Nurturing Touch Massage is calming, slow, and very patient. The strokes are languid and lingering. It has the intention of making the client feel as relaxed and complete as they can be in this moment. It is non-judgmental and accepts the client as they are without needing to change them.

Cupping

We use cupping therapy a little differently than a lot of traditional cupping practitioners. First of all, we use Baguanfa Soft Silicone Cups for our cupping instead of fire cupping with glass cups. Secondly, we incorporate cupping directly into our massage and move the cups right along with our massage strokes until we find the exact areas where we can focus our cupping therapy. This allows us to leverage the complementary benefits derived from creating a localized vacuum (negative pressure) with the benefits derived from manual tissue manipulation (positive pressure), joint manipulation, and relaxation work. 

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

IASTM is one of the advanced techniques that many of our therapists are certified to use. It can help resolve fascial related pain, restrictions, and tightness in the body. The IASTM instruments make it easier to identify the precise location of fascial dysfunctions and abnormalities, as well as allows the therapist to treat them more effectively than normal massage techniques can.

If you are interested in this technique, please ask your therapist more about it.
