re:balance bodywork offering fully qualified remedial massage treatments tailored to your needs:

Whether it is a specific injury needing attention, a deep tissue sports massage, headaches or just a chance to relax, soft tissue therapy is an essential tool to Rebalance, de-stress and unwind. We are also OOS specialists and can help you with prevention, management & maintenance. Rebalance has recently moved to Kingsland just minutes from the Auckland CBD.

Kiri is good at listening and discussing any concerns that you have and will adjust the treatment provided accordingly. Most recently I have been getting headaches so we have made this a key focus for the last couple of sessions and the results have been amazing.

Postural Stress

Postural stress is the stress on our bodies as a result of inefficient posture, repetitive movements or prolonged time in the same positions; often as a result of work environments.

It is difficult to maintain a perfect posture all of the time. Yet the better our posture is, the less likely we are to develop aches and pains or more complex conditions in the future.

Massage therapy is an effective way to begin to change your posture patterning. That change begins by first becoming aware of your incorrect posture through a postural assessment.

 

If left unchecked poor posture can result in pain, muscle aches, tension, headaches, and can lead to long-term complications such as osteoarthritis.

Can Massage Therapy Help Relieve Headaches?

Of all the symptoms we experience headaches are the most common. 

I value Kiri’s thoroughly professional and empathetic manner. I strongly recommend her and in fact have suggested to my orthopaedic surgeon that this therapeutic massage following surgery greatly assists recovery.

 

 

“Kiri Lowe has been treating me with her excellent massage [soft tissue therapy] for a number of years. I have found this particularly helpful when I have been recovering from a couple of operations that temporarily limited my mobility. Lower back pain, leg, shoulder and upper arm pain in particular have plagued me but with massage these areas have been greatly improved. I value Kiri’s thoroughly professional and empathetic manner. I strongly recommend her and in fact have suggested to my orthopaedic surgeon that this therapeutic massage following surgery greatly assists recovery.”

“I first went to Kiri approximately 12 years ago with severe back and calf pain as a result of running and after several failed attempts at finding a resolution. After just a couple of sessions we were making progress on getting me moving again, through massage and stretching exercises, and I finally had relief from the constant pain I was in.
Having always been fairly active I still try to keep up some form of regular exercise and am now a firm believer in massage to relieve tight muscles and help minimize the risk of further injury. A session with Kiri every three weeks means we address any aches and pains as they arise and maintain those known problem areas – for me this is predominately neck, lower back and legs.
Kiri is good at listening and discussing any concerns that you have and will adjust the treatment provided accordingly. Most recently I have been getting headaches so we have made this a key focus for the last couple of sessions and the results have been amazing.
I will be continuing with my regular sessions and highly recommend Kiri to anyone looking for treatment for a current problem or perhaps just having a massage because it makes you feel great.”

“The first time I went to see Kiri I had a sore back and neck. I left an hour later feeling like my whole spine had been stretched. I will never forget the feeling that day – I felt like I was a couple of inches taller! What a sense of release. I had movement in my neck that hadn’t been there for years!
Kiri is a really experienced massage therapist who has helped me through injuries, operations and health issues over many years. She listens well to get the complete picture of what is going on with my body and often identifies problems before I’m even aware of them. She has a really good understanding of how a problem in one area impacts on other parts of the body! Whilst Kiri is a great all-round practitioner I would have to say that her specialist areas are neck, hands and feet. I have no hesitation in recommending Kiri for a consistently good massage.”

“I have been seeing Kiri Lowe for regular massage therapy since 2006. As an elite triathlete this was an integral part of my recovery and Kiri worked closely with everyone involved in my training to make sure that massage optimized recovery, assisted injury rehabilitation and at the same time she provided a professional and personal service. After retiring from triathlon I have continued to see Kiri for regular massage as I have found it to be beneficial to my overall health and well-being, particularly since being pregnant (twice) and having small children to take care of. It has also been a useful way to de-stress from work and a healthy way to take care of myself. Kiri has always provided a personal and caring service and she has remained consistently interested in my physical health and well-being over these years. She has an extensive bio-mechanical knowledge that she uses in her massage therapy to great advantage for the client. She is highly experienced and listens intently to her clients to gain a full understanding of whatever issues they require work on. Most importantly I always leave after a massage from Kiri feeling like the work has been done; my muscles are lighter and looser. I highly recommend Kiri as a massage therapist to anyone who chooses this form of therapy. You will never regret it!”

“I could not recommend Kiri more highly. She is a vital ingredient of my ongoing physical health as a professional violinist, providing me with wholesome support through her therapeutic massage and general health knowledge.

Looking after my body’s health is a number one priority for me, as playing the violin for many hours each day puts a lot of extra stress on my body – especially my upper body and neck, which require ongoing support and treatment to remain functional and free. Kiri works slowly and strongly into my tired and tight muscles and I especially enjoy the deep and slow work she is able to apply, unraveling, lengthening and widening me as she goes. It is clear she has a thorough knowledge of anatomy, and I feel completely safe and taken care of in her hands.

I have great respect for her training and knowledge, and also thoroughly appreciate her calm and open nature. I always look forward to Kiri’s massages. She is a wonderful practitioner and a lovely person too!”

“I have been seeing Kiri for therapeutic massage for over five years. She is one of the best massage therapists I have seen, out of many! She has effectively treated all the particular concerns I have had during this time, such as chronic lumbar back pain, postural shoulder pain and arm discomfort related to carpal tunnel. She is an experienced practitioner of many massage techniques, including deep tissue and pregnancy massage and I enjoyed massages with Kiri throughout all stages of my pregnancy. I continue to see her as often as possible and I recommend you do too!”
