Massage Therapy

Kath is a bodyworker and massage practitioner with a wide range of life experiences and a variety of tools she weaves into her sessions. Kath started out training in Relaxation Massage, Deep Tissue Work and Shiatsu, later expanding into Traditional Māori Healing (Romiromi/Mirimiri). She has been trained by four different Māori healers in New Zealand over the last years.

The core of Kath’s work is her passion for the language and wisdom of the body. Beyond her delicious relaxation and deep tissue massage work, her work is focused on bringing people back into their bodies fully, to ground and centre, and to deeply listen to what is presenting under the surface. The deeper work she is offering has the capacity to bring about deep shifts within a person, and to empower people to let go of what is in the way of a state of health and balance.  

She makes her own natural massage and healing balms, oils, and tinctures which can be used in her sessions to support the healing of your physical and mental body.

Treatments available at the Neuro Rehab Results clinic:

Relaxation Massage: This massage will be a treat for your stressed body and mind. In a time where stress is accountable for the majority of our ailments, it becomes ever more important to take the time to assist our body in the healing it needs. This massage will allow you to drop you into a state of deep relaxation; it will increase your parasympathetic nervous system activation, which in turn increases your immune function, supports cell renewal and hence increases the self-healing capacity of your body. This massage is available as a 60min or 85min treatment. Kath can always tailor to your needs.

Deeper Tissue Massage: Working with deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue through massage techniques, myofascial release techniques and trigger point therapy, this massage can help relieve chronic pains, referred pains, postural problems, restricted mobility, and restricted circulation, and it aids the breaking up of scar tissue. This massage is available as a 60min or 85min treatment.

Holistic Massage: This treatment combines elements from different traditions Kath has trained in in order to release any tension or blockages your body might be holding and to re-balance the flow of energies in your body. It is a highly personalised treatment that will focus on what is going on in your energy system at this time. This treatment is a deeply healing and relaxing experience, leaving you more centred and grounded. This massage is available as a 70min or 90min treatment.

Romiromi/Mirimiri: This type of work is an ancient bodywork modality of the Māori. It works on all levels of your being and focuses on releasing blockages in your energy system, and at realigning your mind, body and spirit. It can help you let go of anything that no longer serves you in this moment, and of anything that is in the way of you being your true self. It has the capacity to look deeply at patterns and situations in your life and how they may have manifested physically. This bodywork gives you a chance to go deep within yourself and clear out anything that no longer needs to be. A session lasts between 80 and 120 minutes (including initial chat). This treatment usually takes place fully clothed so please wear something stretchy and comfortable. Allow for some time for yourself afterwards to integrate.
