Michael Cauce, Certified Remedial Massage Therapist & Hawaiian Bodyworker
Diploma of Remedial Massage. Certificate in Ka Huna & Lomi Lomi Massage
Many years ago, Michael was incredibly fortunate to receive an amazing Hawaiian bodywork experience unlike any massage therapy he’d had before, with a profound sense of aliveness, wholeness and reconnection to self that is almost indescribable!
He was fundamentally rejuvenated on multiple levels. It was so powerful that he felt compelled to change careers and dedicate his life to bringing more of this powerful healing work into the world… and so Lomi Life was born.
Given the obvious benefits that remedial massage therapy provides, he is particularly passionate (as are his clients, with 100+ five-star Google reviews) about his signature style – The Deep Lomi Blend – a powerful, unique combination of Hawaiian ka huna, lomi lomi and remedial/deep tissue massage therapy that has the capacity to deeply rebalance and rejuvenate – physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually!
His work often complements an osteopath’s treatment, so he enjoys teaming up with Recharge’s osteos to provide that extra level of support for clients.
The most common reasons clients see Michael include:
- muscle pain/tension relief
- deep relaxation / de-stressing
- uplifting mental health support
- shifting stagnant energy
- rejuvenating a rundown nervous system
- grounding & reconnecting you to your heart & body wisdom
- boosting overall vitality & resilience
