The massage techniques used at Kula Health are to bring balance to the muscles and connective tissues of your body.
The release of built-up tension and deep relaxation promotes natural movement and body positioning, increases the flow of blood and lymphatics, and enhances the body’s capacity to heal.

Head, Neck, Shoulder Massage

Feel your shoulders drop away from your ears as tension in your traps and neck are released and feel the pressure in your head dissolve.
Great if you suffer from stress, spend long hours seated in front of a computer or are someone who experiences headaches or migraines.
Reflexology is a therapeutic foot massage aiming to promote wellness in other areas of the body. Modern reflexology is based on the principle that the foot has ‘reflex’ points that correspond to the various structures and organs throughout the body. Session involves education on self-roll and release.
Our feet often don’t receive the recognition they deserve for they carry you thousands of kilometres every year. Bring gratitude for your humble feet, relieve tension and induce blood flow and enhance healing from the bottom up.
Reiki is a Japanese technique used to reduce stress, promote relaxation and enhance healing. It is an energetic bodywork system applied by placing the practitioner's hands on specific areas of the body, supporting the "life force energy” that flows through us. The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words - Rei meaning "Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". Reiki addresses the whole person, including body, mind, emotion and spirit. The system of Reiki requires the client to take responsibility for his/her healing and incorporates an active commitment to improve oneself.
Great if you are feeling blocked or stuck in life, feel out of balance or lacking vitality.
Pregnancy massage is a beautiful way to help ease the aches and pains associated with the increased demands of pregnancy on the body. Our techniques are a combination of relaxation techniques and remedial massage adapted to suit physical changes unique to your body. We have specialty massage pillows to allow the mumma-to-be to lay belly down (bliss!) or lay in a supported side lying position.
Massage is a safe and effective way to help reduce stress and anxiety, release tension from back, head, neck and hips, aid in recharging the mind suffering from sleep deprivation, and aids in decreasing fluid retention and increasing blood circulation. Feel like the goddess you are mumma!
A heavenly whole body experience. The aim of a relaxation massage is to help you recharge and let go of the busy mind, allowing you to find a sense of calm within. Promoting relaxation in the body is key to allowing your parasympathetic system to take over, which is imperative to allowing your body to heal. Expect a combination of long, slow, gentle and deep strokes encouraging relaxation and circulation in a pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful.

Giada Fosati has had an inclination for natural therapies since a young age and began her massage journey with hand and foot reflexology in her hometown Milan. She believes in the self-healing power of the body, and found reflexology was a great way to stimulate mind and body balance along with relaxation. Further studies took her down the path of remedial massage, which she now loves combining with cupping.
Outside of Kula, Giada is very passionate about training martial arts and loves getting out in nature to cycle or run. And like most of us here at Kula she also enjoys doing yoga, stretching and meditation.
Her passion for movement has led her to have interests in sports massage, treating people with sporting injuries to help them get back to doing what they love to do! Giada also enjoys the nurturing side of massage, helping clients relax their mind and body, improve their mood and help them lead happier lives.
You will discuss with your massage therapist what areas you would you like to work on so that we can identify the flow of the massage.
If you are looking for the pure enjoyment, we suggest the Kula Signature Massage.
In case you are feeling really tense and stressed out, the best choice would the Focus Massage or the Ultimate Sport.
And if your feet ache for pampering, the For The Sole massage with reflexology elements will most likely make you feel like you are floating on air.
If you are looking to address a specific condition you should be seeing a massage therapist quite frequently at the beginning and then slowly tapering down.
But if you are after a maintenance treatment plan, then a session every 2-4 weeks may be more than fine for you.
The only pain you’ll get is “feels good” pain. A great massage, even if it’s a really deep tissue massage, should always stay in the hurt-free zone.
Pain can be an indication that the muscle or tissue is inflamed, maybe even injured, which signals your therapist to adjust the pressure.
Energized – this is the way we like to leave our clients feeling.
Increase in energy levels and greater productivity can even last for several days after the treatment.
Yes, all our massage therapists are registered for HICAPS on the spot claiming and it will depend on your level of cover with your private health provider.
