Catherine Lummiss has been practicing Rebalancing Massage for over 20 years and was certified by Clearheart Bodywork in Nelson BC. Rebalancing is a compilation of several massage modalities and can be described as a massage meditation which integrates presence and self awareness with breath. Muscles are freed from tension and joints regain their graceful mobilization by using techniques such as relaxation massage, deep tissue massage, accupressure, rocking, compressions and expansions along with stretching and joint release. At the core of every treatment, Catherine specializes in cranial, spinal, sacral, and facial massage. Her approach provides an opportunity for clients to connect deeply with their inner self while inviting warmth and nourishment into the body.
