Cristina Lapuste | Massage Therapist

Welcome to Koru Chiropractic.

My name is Cristina Lapuste and I am qualified as a Sports Massage Therapist. Since finishing college in 2011 I have been working as a Complementary Health Therapist focusing on Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massage.

Sports Massage is one of the fundamental treatments that is aimed to restore normal function when someone is injured but beside Sports massage I practice additional types of massage therapies such as: Indian Head Massage, Reflexology and Aroma Therapy.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is an extremely effective therapy that targets deep layers of muscles and connective tissue. It can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries enabling increased flow of nutrients and oxygen. Deep Tissue Massage relieves the body of toxins and lactic acid build up thus loosening muscles and giving greater movement. This therapy is also beneficial for those suffering from emotional stress which lies deep in the muscles. These trapped emotions are released and energy flow is improved. Pressure can be adjusted at any stage of the treatment and it is recommended you communicate this with your therapist.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage Therapy is an ancient and wonderfully relaxing therapy applied to the head, neck, shoulders, chest and arms. It is a light but invigorating treatment, beneficial for relaxation and healing, suitable for all ages. There are many benefits of Indian Head Massage including:

  • Stress / Tension
  • HeadachesWoman receiving massage therapy.
  • Sinusitis
  • Earaches
  • Tinnitus
  • Jaw ache
  • Insomnia
  • Relief from eye strain
  • Stimulation of hair growth

Reflexology

Reflexology is an extremely effective and powerful therapy. It is a holistic therapy treating the whole person which stimulates the body’s own healing process. Using specific hand, finger and thumb technique, Reflexology stimulates responses in corresponding parts of the body. This treatment promotes homeostasis (the body’s ability to return to a state of equilibrium). Reflexology is safe and can improve a wide variety of medical conditions including:

  • Asthma
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Poor digestion
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Menstrual Problems
