Therapies available include:

  • therapeutic massage Therapeutic Treatments at Kawai PurapuraCranioSacral Therapy: a very gentle and light touch that releases tensions in the central nervous system. It promotes all systems in the body to relax, realign and free itself of discomfort. You are fully clothed during the session and the work is focused on the head and sacrum.
  • Deep Tissue Neuromuscular: an intense form of bodywork which consists of focused, concentrated massaging on one specific area of the body. The pressure may continue for a period of up to thirty seconds at a time. It is designed to alleviate tension that extends from a “trigger point” out to an entire muscle.
  • Hypnosis: a relaxed state of human mind where the subconscious mind remains awake and receptive to suggestion. It involves focused attention and full involvement so one can indeed focus on an idea, an aspect of one’s life, a dilemma or a challenge.
  • Hypnotherapy: is a safe, proven, and effective tool for directly accessing the power or the subconscious mind during hypnosis.
  • Prenatal Massage: personalised for mum and baby. To optimize the benefits, whatever mum feels appropriate we tend to. Prenatal massage helps guard against anemia, leg cramps, backaches, edema and fatigue. It can shorten labour and enhance the quality of one’s sleep.
  • thai yoga massage 0 Therapeutic Treatments at Kawai PurapuraReconnective healing (RH): is a therapy that uses the light and information exchange of the fifth dimensional energy grid to renew the human body, mind, and spirit. The RH frequencies “connect” us with higher vibrational frequencies which in turn act on our DNA and biofields. The practitioner’s role is to act a catalyst, bringing both client and (RH) frequencies together.
  • Reflexology: pamper your feet with a delicious foot massage. Lay back and enjoy the stimulating effect of your feet being exfoliated, massaged and wrapped in hot towels and topped off with a hydrating peppermint moisturizer which will leave your feet feeling fluffy and light.
  • Reiki: a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. “Reiki” is made of two Japanese words: Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”.
  • Zen Chi: the rhythmic body movement of the Zen Chi exerciser stimulates the body, opens the vertebrae, and gently exercises every joint in the body, alleviating stress and tension in the spinal column. Its wavelike motion replicates exercise (equivalent to a 4 kilometer run) and promotes the flow of blood to the capillaries in all extremities of the body, increasing circulation. Body detoxification is improved via enhanced lymphatic circulation and abdominal peristalsis.

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.”

Tony Reardon – Psychotherapist

Tony is particularly interested in facilitating the ability of his clients to attend to their own growth and development. In recent years he has been teaching his clients the skills of Mindfulness, which is mindful attention to the present moment.

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.”
