Maori Romi Romi Protocol
Part of our team has been training in Maori Romi Romi with Ana Goncalves from Knoxville, and directly with Atarangi Muru, Maori Healer and Master Teacher from New Zealand. Some of us have travelled to New Zealand to continue to learn and practice by attending the “Te Rongopae” 2018 bodywork training, and had the opportunity to study and train at our amazing teacher’s Atarangi Muru’s clinic. As per Atarangi’ s request, we are now offering the Romi Romi protocol that she has taught us. Clients stay fully dressed on the massage table (in loose comfortable clothing). The therapist will use a Raakau (stick), hands, elbows, knees and feet to move the body and the energy, and will do deep compressive work and stretches. This allows the body to let go of what is ready to release.
Sports massage is a great tool for anyone with an active lifestyle. Whether you are a serious athlete or just getting started, this modality can help you with both the training and recovery aspects of your specific sport. It is a great way to prevent injury, keep muscles loose and healthy, and recover faster from your workouts.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage is a Meadowsweet specialty! It is a powerful modality that works with both the physical and emotional bodies. Our therapists expertly use deep strong pressure to address muscle tension, chronic pain, poor posture and accumulated stress. Stretching and opening the body, and quieting the mind, will leave you feeling lighter and a little taller.
Always with a therapeutic approach, our relaxation massage is individualized to your needs. Our therapists will use a lighter touch, long broad and fluid strokes, stretches, rocking, and energy work in order to relax and open your body, slow down your nervous system, and gently move along toxins and stagnant fluids. So breathe in the essential oils diffused in the room, close your eyes, and forget about everything else.
Most of our therapists are trained in prenatal massage and would love to help you feel great during your pregnancy! They will blend a variety of techniques including Thai Yoga massage, Deep Tissue massage, and Swedish massage, to stretch, lengthen and relax mama’s sore muscles. Past your due date? We know it is hard to relax at this point, but relaxation may be just what will start the process, in addition to some key pressure points that may help move things along.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by laying on hands and is based on the idea that a life force energy flows through us.
The word Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.”
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing. It treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. It is a deeply relaxing 60 min only session, where the client remains fully clothed, and on his/her back the entire time.
