Are you coping with the sudden death of a loved one:?

The loss of a loved one can be devastating, turning a person’s world upside down and leaving them reeling in shock, and when it’s unexpected, it can be even harder to understand and overcome.

The journey to recovery is unique for every person and it’s important that a person does what’s right for them when faced with sudden loss. There is no perfect or predictable way to grieve, the impact upon the person’s friends and family can be absolutely devastating.

Some people feel absolutely numb with shock upon hearing the news, like they simply can’t believe it’s real and some people feel waves of grief, anger or a terrible sense of guilt about whether there was something they could have done to prevent it, maybe feeling angry about what happened, or overwhelmed by everything that needs to be dealt with now that they are gone.

Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage

Whats new at Virginia Dyson Remedial Massage

Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage - Temple Style

Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage is an ancient form of massage handed down and practised for hundreds of year by the Kahuna,(master practitioners), and the Kapuna, (elders). It awakens a very deep connection to body, mind and spirit which creates a space for healing, self-love, and a letting go.

Lomi Lomi Temple Style incorporates long, rhythmic, and flowing strokes along the body using hands and forearms in a dance like movement totally nurturing the body and mind, enabling you to relax, give in and simply be in the moment. The breath is used to maintain focus and energy flow, and traditionally Lomi Lomi is give with intention and prayer to facilitate balance and harmony. Slowly layers of emotional memory and stored tension may be removed and mana, (life force), is able to vibrate through the body.  To work along the whole body there is minimal draping, traditionally the person receiving Lomi Lomi would not have any clothing on, but you will be required to wear underpants and there will be draping of the chest area. You will still be receiving a lovely flowing massage from head to toe, with underbody work.

The difference between a remedial massage and Lomi Lomi are the traditions woven into the massage, particularly Aloha, (love), which not only releases physical tension but also emotional, mental and spiritual blockages. 

This is a 1 1/2-hour therapeutic treatment and not usually available for health fund rebate.

Restorative Stretch

Where massage and gentle yoga inspired poses fuse to encourage you to reconnect body and mind.

Restorative Stretch is where massage and gentle supported poses encourage you to reconnect body and mind. It is a fully clothed treatment where you will use props such as bolsters, blankets, and blocks to hold a restorative pose for a longer length of time.  Once your comfortable areas of the body are massaged and you will be encouraged to use your breath as your body and mind relax and surrender to the fully supported pose allowing for a gentle stretch.

This is time where you will become mindful, and feel your body and mind let go of stress, tension, and racing thoughts.

To finish there will be a short meditation and time to set your intention for the coming week. Restorative Stretch is a 1-hour treatment and is not available for health fund rebate.
