Dr Wayne Naude, Homeoapth and Functional Medicine Doctor, also integrates bodywork into his practice.
He believes that the therapeutic effects of touch, pressure and movement greatly enhance healing, and are largely lacking from medicine.
He does the bodywork himself.
There are various massage techniques, and it can be complicated for people to chose what suits them, so it is best to chat about this prior to starting.
The two overall categories are therapeutic massage and lymphatic drainage massage.
This covers the attention to and rehabilitation of structural issues, sporting injuries and general aches and pains. Pressure is usually moderate to firm, with depth. The massage can be of one area or the whole body.
60 minutes – R550, 90 minutes – R725
Lymphatic drainage massage
This is a healing massage therapy that assists detoxification my moving extracellular fluid (lymph) from areas where it is stagnating and returning it to the circulation. It involves a sustained pressure stroke from the outside of of the body toward the middle, as that is how the lymph channels are arranged. The inward stroke is followed by a low pressure return stroke. Although some people use a high pressure or a rapid stroke, both of which are painful, we use neither and still get great results, and you will have a pleasant experience.
Full body 90 minutes – R725, Back, neck and shoulders 45 minutes – R430, Lower body 45 minutes – R430
Fusion combines aspects of both of the above forms. Prices are the same
Is the therapist experienced? Dr Wayne has been doing therapeutic body work for over 22 years
Can we have a couples massage? Unfortunately we don’t have a second therapist to do 2 massages simultaneously. We could offer a second massage after the first, and there are plenty of good restaurants and coffee shops in the Waterfront across the road where one party could enjoy a meal or drink while they wait…
What should I wear for the massage? This is difficult to answer. From a therapeutic point of view garments tend to get in the way. However some people prefer the modesty that underwear offers. If you do chose to go without the underwear you will still be strategically covered with a towel(s) as needed. We are not going to be shocked if you are without clothing and are actually nudist friendly!
Is the room warm enough? Yes, we run a powerful heater and electric blanket when it is chilly! You will feel like you are on a tropical island!
What oils do you use? I use a rare low fragrance organic olive oil carrier and usually combine lavender and ylang ylang essential oils as a pre-mixed oil for use. If you have specific oils that you would like me to use you are welcome to bring them along.
Do you offer spa facilities such as Jacuzzi, mud bath, facials, scrubs etc? Unfortunately no, not yet!
