Trishah offers an Ayurvedic Diagnostic & Treatment Session as an introduction to her practice. This "Ayurvedic Check-Up," assesses internal organ health, the meridian channels, tissues and the energetic body. The diagnostic is done by a Pulse Consultation (Nadi Vijnanam), and the session also includes treatment in 1-3 Ayurvedic specialties. The introductory session is 90 minutes.
Swedish massage is probably the best known type of bodywork. One of the main goals of Swedish massage is deep relaxation, and deep-tissue is regularly incorporated for improving circulation and flexibility.
Neuromuscular Therapy, with Beth Warren
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is well known for its effectiveness in pain relief. This therapy increases blood flow and oxygen to depleted muscle areas through focused pressure and friction. Beth will guide you through simple breathing and movement coordinated with sustained pressure to your trouble areas.
NMT will require a bit of "work" from you, and the relief you find is satisfying; the work helps reset your alignment and posture so you can naturally rebuild healthy energy flow and full range of motion.
Lomi Lomi Massage, with Moe Boska
What is Lomi Lomi?
Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage modality used frequently in ancient Hawaii and still often today. The specific patterns that Lomi Lomi is known for can vary
by family, island and region.
The Polynesian settlers originally brought this massage technique into Hawaii, and it evolved into
something unique to the Hawaiian culture. Lomi Lomi quickly became a deeply rooted part of the culture. In ancient times, the people that performed this massage were called ka poʻe Lomi Lomi (massage person), however this healing method was also practiced by almost everyone in the community, including young children and elders.
Elders who were adept in this style of massage held the belief that memories are stored in every cell of the body. In order to change body patterns, deep, flowing, strong
strokes must be used. Lomi Lomi is meant to soothe and restore energy. The work goes deeply and smoothly into the muscles, convincing tension to fade away to the comfort of touch, love and healing. As the ocean moves water in endless rhythm, Lomi Lomi moves the water through the body.
Lomi Lomi is a truly amazing healing technique, using deep, nurturing touch to send tension out of the body. Along
with tension, toxins are released and the digestive system is much more comfortable and balanced. This gentle method of healing and rejuvenation reaches deep to the level of the bones, where the mana (life force) originates.
