MAURI ORANGA - Polynesian massage and therapies utilising holistic, rehabilitative techniques.
Christa Thoma of MAURI ORANGA offers a range of massages and therapies aimed at helping the body and mind in all physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions:
KA HUNA Bodywork - This is also known as Hawaiian Temple Style Massage and Lomi Lomi. This beautiful form of bodywork provides a holistic approach to healing, with Christa being able to tune in to your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual state. The massage is tailored to each person's unique needs.
Dorn Method - Christa practices the Dorn Method which gently works the extension of the spine's vertebrae. As well as actual therapy, which focuses on looking for and correcting imbalances within the body, Dorn also promotes the use of better posture of day to day life. Many people with back pain and misalignment issues come to Christa with amazing results - "My back feels more fluid - more than it has in a long while. I can feel my lower back has separate vertebrae rather than 5-6 all fused together as one. My upper back is a lot more mobile too." - Brad Friis, Dorn Method Review
Special Pregnancy Massage - MAURI ORANGA provides a beautiful Polynesian massage for the expectant mother who lies face down on a specially designed table. You will be nurtured with loving energy swirling around your body in long wave-like strokes, energizing you, relaxing you and leave you feeling uplifted after the massage is complete.
Infant Massage - Both the baby and you receive tremendous benefits from the loving touch such as stimulation of the digestive, circulatory, lymphatic, immune, nervous and hormonal systems. It also reduces stress levels for both baby and parents with a better, deeper sleep being able to be achieved. Christa offers 3-5 week courses in infant massage - please get in touch with her to discuss your needs.
Craniosacral Therapy - Christa is currently training in Craniosacral Therapy and will be fully qualified October 2018.
