About

Holistic Alignment provides massage and cognitive therapies to restore your body’s natural state of harmony and balance…mind, body, spirit

Holistic Alignment is conveniently located in Epsom, Auckland at the New Zealand College of Massage, the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and the College of Natural Health and Homeopathy. Our professional, inviting space also provides the convenience of free off-street parking. Treatment is provided in a safe, confidential environment which fosters release from the stressors of life, allowing you to relax and recharge.

Our highly qualified practitioner, Chrissy Diamond, (BHS, Dip NMT, Dip CST, Dip CTM), has a unique way of addressing the unique aspects within each individual. Treatment is interactive and encompasses all processes of the mind and body while recognizing the inherent life-force.

HOLISTIC ALIGNMENT MASSAGE THERAPIES INCLUDE:

  • Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT/Trigger Point release)
    • Neuromuscular therapy uses a variety of bodywork techniques to facilitate increased “communication” between the central nervous and muscular systems.
      The central nervous system is the body’s way of communicating with all of its different parts, and as with any system if there is a breakdown of communication, dysfunction may occur. Dysfunction or imbalance within the nervous system can result from injury, physical and/or emotional trauma, high stress, nutritional deficiencies, poor hydration, medications/supplements and overuse of stimulants or depressants.
  • Clinical Sports Therapy
    • Clinical Sports Therapy (Sports Massage) helps to enhance sports performance and to promote faster recovery.
      By increasing circulation through massage, oxygen and other nutrients are carried through the blood stream to nourish fatigued muscles. Boosting blood flow and increasing circulation of the lymphatic system also assists in releasing metabolic waste from the body, thus accelerating the healing process improving both performance and recovery.
  • Therapeutic Massage
    • Therapeutic Massage: The process of relaxation induced by therapeutic massage cannot be underestimated, as it stimulates every system within the body.
      All bodily systems have an overlapping effect where one function triggers a chain reaction throughout the entire body.
  • Myofascial/Connective Tissue Release
    • Myofascial and Connective Tissue Release helps to release tension and pain due to increasing movement within the tissue.
      The Myofascia, otherwise known as connective tissue, is a fibrous web that permeates the entire body. This tissue provides support and protection for the body, infusing muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and our organic system.
  • Mobilisation
    • Mobilisation helps to correct the alignment of the joints resulting in release pressure on the nervous system, therefore reducing pain and tension within the body.
      Mobilisation involves gentle to vigorous rocking movements of joints and vertebrae. This movement results in the structural re-alignment of the bones, followed by the release of the nerves and finally the relaxation of the muscular system.
  • Lymphatic Therapy
    • The lymphatic system is a fluid system that purifies our body from metabolic waste.
      Lymphatic Therapy, otherwise known as lymphatic drainage, stimulates the flow of the lymph fluid towards the lymphatic nodes which filter this fluid and send it back into our bloodstream purified.
  • Energy/Polarity Balancing
    • Balancing- restores and invigorates the mind, body and emotions through a series of subtle sensory and intuitive techniques aimed at re-aligning the body’s electromagnetic field.
      The stress of life can affect us on many levels. Physical injuries and illnesses can weaken our system and leave us experiencing pain and fatigue. Emotional trauma can accumulate and leave us feeling broken, incomplete, and unable to live life to its fullest.
  • Facilitated Breath Work
    • Facilitated Breath Work involves guided breathing techniques to assist with physiological and emotional health.
      Breathing assists in stimulating the movement of blood for tissue nourishment and lymphatic fluid for detoxification. The movement of the breath also increases our digestive motility and the health of the organs. Our breath helps us in anchoring our conscious mind to our body by allowing us to focus on the sensations that occur through inhalation and exhalation and assisting us in the process of relaxation.

      Facilitated breath work draws from the same approach used in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR).

  • Chinese Cupping Massage Therapy
    • Cupping massage therapy is a technique that applies suction cups to the skin in order to stimulate blood flow, and detoxify the body.
      Cupping therapy is greatly beneficial in releasing very tight muscles which can also induce a profound state of relaxation.

HOLISTIC ALIGNMENT COGNITIVE THERAPIES INCLUDE:

  • PSYCH-K (Psychological Kinesiology)
    • PSYCH-K® is a unique and direct way to transform limiting subconscious beliefs into life affirming beliefs that empower you to experience what you prefer.
      PSYCH-K is an energy medicine technique that uses kinesiology (muscle testing) to communicate with your subconscious mind. When a negative or limiting belief is identified, PSYCH-K uses specific techniques to change the belief onto one that serves you.
  • Energy/Polarity Balancing
    • The Mind/Body system operates through an electro-magnetic current. Energy Balancing resets the mind and body much like reconnecting a blown fuse. This allows us to feel parts of ourselves that we may have lost touch with. When this flow of energy is re-established we can once again feel the joy of living.

      Treatment may use touch or non-touch techniques, gentle rocking, holding, pulsing and vibration and may result in physical/emotional release and a sense of invigoration or may also invoke a profound sense of relaxation.

  • E.F.T.
  • BodyTalk
  • Brain Gym
