Your massage is custom-designed for you. Manita uses Deep-Tissue massage, Cranio-sacral, Myofascial release, Reiki, Pregnancy massage, lomi-lomi, relaxation massage and stress reduction techniques like Somatic Experiencing in her work:
"Manita is an utterly rare gem. A truly gifted and creative healer in a class by herself. I was introduced to her 5 years ago after a severe accident, and was so impressed I have continued to schedule time with her once a week ever since. The time spent with her as a client has probably been one of the most rewarding and grounding health choices and gifts I have ever given myself or received from another. In my experience the uniqueness of her practice comes from the rare combination and application of genuine intuitive healing art and highly technical and knowledgeable massage practice. In addition to her remarkable skill, she is simply a kind, generous and non-judgmental soul that makes spending time with her a blessing".
Review by Shawn B, analog 2009
Oftentimes physical issues stem from moments of great stress the body has experienced, I use Somatic Experiencing techniques during your massage to clear those old experiences from your tissues.
SOMATIC EXPERIENCING (SE™) is a potent psychobiological method for resolving trauma symptoms and relieving chronic stress.
Trauma may result from a wide variety of stressors such as accidents, invasive medical procedures, sexual or physical assault, emotional abuse, neglect, war, natural disasters, loss, birth trauma, or the corrosive stressors of ongoing fear and conflict.
SE does not require the traumatized person to re-tell or re-live the traumatic event. Instead, it offers the opportunity to engage, complete and resolve in a slow and supported way the body's instinctual fight, flight, freeze, and collapse responses. Individuals locked in anxiety or rage then relax into a growing sense of peace and safety. Those stuck in depression gradually find their feelings of hopelessness and numbness transformed into empowerment, triumph, and mastery.
