Indian Head Massage
Spa Pool Retreat
Swedish style massage with long flowing massage strokes to lift stress and promote a calm mind. This gentle therapy will leave you feeling light and relaxed. It can also improve blood and lymph circulation. A great way to de-stress and let go of daily worries and to help alleviate general bodily aches. This may include some therapeutic techniques to release tension in the shoulders and neck.
Indian Head Massage (with or without oil on the head)
This complete treatment includes massage and acupressure points on the shoulders, neck, head/scalp, face, arms and hands. This treatment is extremely relaxing and invigorating at the same time.
Reflexology can help to activate the body's own healing and cleansing mechanisms. Tensions are eased and circulation is improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself and can restore the body to a better state of harmony, health and homeostasis.
Janesce Botanical Facials
Janesce facials use organic extracts taken from flowers and plants grown on a certified organic farm in Adelaide, Australia.
Even the most sensitive and problematic skins can benefit from receiving 'mother nature's medicine' for the skin. Janesce therapeutic facials provide an intensive boost of powerful botanicals, and are not only anti-ageing, hydrating and nourishing for the skin but can also help to clear-up 'problem' skins.

My name is Lorna and this is the story of my journey....... I firstly started out on my journey to help people to achieve their physical goals as a Personal Trainer. Not entirely satisfied with the results which were slow and not as rewarding as I'd first imagined, I decided - as I'd always loved receiving a massage - I'd train in massage therapy to reward my clients after their workout. I quickly found that more and more people were only coming to me for a massage and not a 'workout'! So, I made a leap of faith, I quit shouting at people to 'move their ass' and changed my my tone to a more subtle one that allows people to be who they are and to treat their own bodies with respect, harmony and balance.
Since undertaking my initial massage therapy training in 2017 - my learning has never stopped. I've taken many short courses to add to my skill set, from trigger point therapy, sports/deep tissue massage and structural bodywork in Australia with Anatomy Trains. Now however, my path to healing has taken a steady turn. I now offer a more gentle approach meaning 'no pain no gain' doesn't fit with me anymore.
My most recent training and qualification is a Diploma in Reflexology which is a holistic treatment of the whole body through the feet. And at the moment I'm just completing my training in Bowen therapy which can help to heal or at the very least alleviate symptoms of many ailments be them structural or internal. This again is a gentle therapy inviting the body to heal itself putting it into a 'rest and digest' state rather than putting force onto the body and risking a 'flight or fight' reaction and potentially more pain!

I have just recently undertaken training in the Indian Head Massage technique which can help to alleviate built-up stress and tension in the head, neck and face.
I also offer Janesce botanical facials that add a boost of anti-oxidants, hydration and nutrients to the skin. Janesce botanical skincare uses 'mother nature's' tinctures, serums, oils and mists.
And, during the warmer months we have a spa pool retreat short stay available to celebrate an occasion or to just catch up with friends or family.
My relaxation space and massage room are quiet and comfortable here at my home in Silverstream, Upper Hutt.
I welcome you with a friendly smile and warm hospitality.
