Saija was born in Australia to Finnish parents and is a professionally qualified massage therapist and a member of the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (AAMT). She has developed her unique technique and skills from a range of modalities and blends them together to produce a recipe that brings results.
Saija incorporates hands-on healing practices spanning over 20 years into her massage. Clients can request specific time be made available for healing as an alternate therapy either separate from or included in with their massage. Her techniques are individually designed to meet the specific needs of each and every client. With skilful expertise she can release areas of discomfort within the body.
With deep tissue pressure release combined with a relaxing and soothing massage you are sure to leave feeling a deep sense of peace and restored balance.
Massage bodywork is a non-invasive and humanistic approach based on 'touch' to help the body heal itself.
Massage has many physiological effects such as:
Increasing circulation - Allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissue and vital organs
Stimulating the lymph system - the body's natural defense against toxic invaders
Relaxing and softening injured and overused muscles
Reducing spasms and cramping
Increasing joint flexibility
Reducing recovery time
Reducing post-surgery adhesions and oedema and reducing and realigning scar tissue after healing has occurred
Improving range of motion and decreasing discomfort for people with pain
Relieving pain for migraine sufferers and decreasing the need for medication
For pregnancy contributing to shorter labour and reducing tearing, minimising depression and anxiety.
With 'touch' people can be restored to full health and vitality. Life takes on a new meaning.
