Martina Di Bella is a local, and lives here on the Gold Coast with her family and has been a certified Hawaiian Massage Therapist for over 8 years. A qualified Remedial therapist and member of the Association of Massage therapists, she has a passion for understanding the body and what it has to teach us, within the principles of the mind, body, spirit connection. Books such as Annette Noontil’s “The Body is the Barometer of the soul” have and are inspiring Martina to further her studies in understanding these philosophies and assisting her in holistically treating clients, soon adding Kinesiology as another tool to her treatments.
So what does a treatment with Martina feel like? In a KaHuna session, she blends her knowledge from the teachings of the Western world (Remedial), and those of the Eastern (Hawaiian KaHuna), working intuitively, knowing the body has the amazing capacity to self heal. The treatment encourages the nervous system into deep relaxation, encouraging the rest and repair state of the body, triggering self healing. Her technique has been described as an experience, not ‘just a massage’. With the sweeping flow of the KaHuna, you are taken to the beachside as though the ocean were right there washing over you. And the focused attention on the musculoskeletal system from her knowledge in Remedial, means the treatment is all encompassing.
As a Mother, Partner, Daughter, Sister and friend, she understands the challenges we can face and the importance of self care. She is devoted to supporting and nurturing your self care regime, so you leave feeling calm, cared for and rejuvenated. Allow yourself to surrender to the experience, breathe in, slow down and reconnect to self.
In a Remedial treatment, the focus is on pain which affects her clients day to day or even her clients little everyday niggles. From sport injuries, to repetitive strain or chronic pain, you name it, with a series of Range of Motion and Special Orthopaedic tests, she is able to determine the possible contributors and create a treatment plan with her clients. Martina uses tools such as Trigger Point therapy, stretching, exercises, Myofascial release, Neuromuscular Techniques, Muscle Energy Technique and cupping.
