KaHuna Lomi Lomi Healing Massage Session

Lomi lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques, nut oils and sometimes elements of prayer, breathing and dance, to restore energy and soothe the body. It is also known as the 'loving hands' massage. This name helps to explain its principles - the massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch. Lomi lomi works from the belief that memories are not just stored in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.

Combined with my intuition, I create comforting and therapeutic treatments, that are unique and customised, to provide a truly healing experience, for each client. With my love of living aloha, I believe that the healing art of Lomi Lomi can benefit everyone. I am soulfully passionate about the maintenance of one's self and believe that regular massage therapy and bodywork, done by the right person, contributes to a person's overall wellbeing in body, mind and spirit.

Hot & Cold Lava Shell Massage

Lava Shells Massage uses the Tiger Clam shells and is greatly enjoyable for anyone with tense muscles, as the heat from the Lava Shells will gently relax and smooth away knots. The Lava Shells owe their magic to a mix of minerals including dried sea kelp, dead seasalt, algae and essential oils. The heated shells also give off calcium ions, which transfers to your skin during the massage. Calcium can help to firm and regenerate the skin - a nice bonus.

An alternative to the popular hot stone massage spa treatment, the Lava Shell can radiate heat for up to an hour, allowing your therapist to provide a continuous and seamless warm full body massage.

Completely Relax with a unique Lava Shell Massage treatment of which Phoenix Rising Therapies is one of the few spas around Brisbane who are qualified and offer this treatment. The combination of warmth and flowing movements deeply soothes your muscles, leaving you feeling completely relaxed, invigorated and de-stressed. The clams have been harvested for food in the Philippines for hundreds of years. This tranquil massage uses the world’s first self-heating massage tool and the heat is produced by inserting a ‘lava gel sachet’ and ‘activator liquid’ into the shell.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massage is used with a blend of oils as a healing technique designed just for your needs to promote health and well-being. Each oil has its own unique characteristics and benefits. For thousands of years essential oils have aided in relaxation, improved circulation and helped the healing of wounds.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for certain benefits. Examples include lavender, orange and bergamot, and eucalyptus. These “aromas” are all plant-based derivatives from herbs, tree extracts, and flowers. Essential oils are extremely concentrated so to be used correctly they should be diluted into milder oils, humidifiers, or lotions.

The overall purpose of aromatherapy is meant to improve your physical and mental well-being.

Aromatherapy massage is used for a variety of different reasons, including relaxation, pain management, and improved mood. These are also some of the basic benefits of massage therapy. Adding essential oils is thought to enhance such benefits.


Reiki Attunement

A complete Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair.

Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands should never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor should there be any pressure.

As the session progresses, you will feel more relaxed. If you become uncomfortable, you can adjust your position at any time. Be sure to ask for anything that will add to your comfort, such as additional support under your knees or a blanket. This is your special time and your practitioner is there to help you.

Receiving Reiki is a wonderfully passive experience. Don't try to relax, just let the Reiki relax you. Your state will shift quite naturally as the session proceeds. Meanwhile feel free to daydream, enjoy the music, or simply observe your breath or the sensations of the therapy.

Crystal Healing 

Crystal healing works to stimulate the body's energy flow, to restore balance and help the body heal itself. The chakra body is understood to be the fundamental influence for the physical body. When there is a blockage or disharmony within the energetic body, it can very often manifest into a physical or emotional illness or imbalance. Therefore energy healing is hugely beneficial for the wellbeing of all three bodies: emotional, physical and spiritual.

Crystals work as vessels which are able to hold energy, transmit energy and transmute energy. In order to understand crystals, you have to start thinking in terms of energy, vibration and frequency. Your treatment begins by the healer selecting different crystals suited to your needs and having these placed on and around your body. Music is chosen, to provide a sound bath, with your healer then moving around your body, using various movements and energetic frequencies to shift blockages to your feet, working to remove any blockages or imbalances within your chakras.

Meditation Classes

Meditation is a mind and body practice that has a long history of use for increasing calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological balance, coping with illness and enhancing overall health and well-being. 

Most classes will last no more than 30 minutes and unlike yoga, where you can always recognise beginners compared with those with more experience, in meditation we all look the same! We keep our instruction basic because even the most advanced practitioner is still working on the primary concept of keeping a singular focus. At a Meditation class, you  can wear whatever you want, so while you do want to feel comfortable when you’re sitting, there’s no need to wear yoga clothes. You will be expected to remove your shoes upon entrance, so you may want to put on a fresh pair of socks.

Meditation is an investment into your spiritual practice, which will ultimately benefit the rest of your life, so when you consistently show up in person, you’ll have the added benefit of the community, which helps with accountability and sparking friendships.
