Lindi O’Connor A. Dip.M.T.  – Massage and Reflexology

Lindi O’Connor is a Body-Mind Massage therapist with over 30 years experience in the field in various countries.  She is certified in Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Reflexology, and Sports and Therapeutic Massage.

Lindi has discovered how profoundly our bodies react to stress and stored emotions, a natural result of “everyday life”, and how this can be reduced by touch and massage – combined with an ability to “listen” and feel the body’s pain. “Bones, muscles, and cellular tissues hold memories of emotional events and life’s stress. Through varied massage techniques we release tension and pain, freeing and healing the “embodied mind.”

Atarangi Muru – Maori Healing and Bodywork

Atarangi Muru has trained as a Maori Healer since an early age. She offers counseling and healing services through group sessions and distance sessions (Skype, phone, email). Atarangi explains: “My name translates as ata (dawn) rangi (light). My passion for the Maori healing arts was first ignited by my elders. Today I help people return to the dawning light that is at the core of their cells and reignite the memory of wellness and joy.

“The techniques of Mirimiri and Romiromi are used to create an individually tailored session for each client. During the process of mirimiri the practitioner explores the body to discern where healing is needed. Even though we have spoken to the person (client) we are looking for the unspoken, the unknown or the forgotten. Where deep tissue bodywork is required Romiromi is activated. Romiromi may involve the use of elbows, hands, knees, feet, sticks, stones and sea water. More than one practitioner at a time may also work on a client.”
