Relief Is At Hand With Kansha
Working in the publishing world means hours and hours sitting at a computer staring at a screen. This kind of sedentary work life can wreak havoc on the body so Jolene Ogle decided it was time to pop into Kansha Natural Therapies for a much-needed massage.
At Kansha, the aim is to restore balance and harmony within, by using a blend of ancient and modern therapies. Kansha offers a host of services including acupuncture, counselling, physiotherapy and reflexology, each tailored to every individual so you can enjoy the best results possible.
Today, I am indulging in a remedial massage which starts with a complimentary, nourishing Ayurvedic tea or fresh, filtered water to promote the peace and tranquility of the space.
My massage therapist is Kana and while she is softly spoken, her massage technique is anything but. From the souls of my feet to the top of my head and the tips of my fingers, every square inch of my stiff-as-a-board body was massaged into submission.
Kana told me my glutes were particularity tight, which I liked to imagine was from all the squats I do but she informed me it was from spending too much time sitting down; something many of us are guilty of as we spend hours working at the computer.
Kana used firm pressure and trigger point therapy to give my muscles a much-needed massage as I tuned into the relaxing classical music and drifted off into a light sleep. My one-hour, whole body treatment included a divine hand massage.
Can you remember the last time you had your hands massaged? I can’t but I’m now wondering why one-hour hand massages aren’t a standard treatment option on all therapy menus.
It’s an extraordinary feeling that has the power to relax the entire body. It evokes a true state of bliss.
The same can be said for a foot massage and if you really want to transcend into a euphoric state then Kansha also offers reflexology, which is known to reduce stress and anxiety, promote better sleep, encourage energy to flow freely and diminish fluid retention in the ankles and feet.
With a spa-like ambiance and a convenient location on Mary Street in Noosaville, it was easy to pop into Kansha for a massage making it possible to refresh and rejuvenate on your lunch break.
You can return to work a whole new person with a spring in your step, very limber fingers and relaxed glutes.
I enjoyed a remedial massage, but there is a range of techniques available from hot stone massage to aroma therapy, Hawaiian-style massage and visceral therapy. Sessions range from one-hour up to two-hours and each session is tailored to your needs.
Whether you’re stuck at a computer for long hours or are simply feeling the stress of the holiday season, Kansha practices a holistic healing philosophy which means you leave feeling refreshed from the souls of your feet to the top of your head and the tips of your fingers.
