Welcome to Seatoun Massage
Hi, my name is Martina Alemagna, and I am a professional massage therapist trained and certified in Czechia and New Zealand. I am the owner of Seatoun Massage in Wellington. I specialise in a wide variety of treatments, from relaxation massage, hot stone massage, deep tissue and more.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."
For me, it all started when my son was born. He was suffering from an intense form of atopic eczema. Doctors prescribed him with steroids, but I was not convinced it was the best cure. As a result, I decided to find the answer in alternative medicine. Fortunately, I found an excellent homoeopath who helped me get started on a plan. My son's illness made me more aware of natural healing and motivated me in my research on "body talk".
During that same time, one of my best friends who was studying therapeutic massage made me experiment with it. After a few sessions, I understood the potential of this practice: I became eager to learn how to practice therapeutic massage. I started practising it on family and friends. I realised that it benefited them, and me too; I found that my internal energy was increasing.
When I moved to New Zealand, I decided to study at the Wellington School of Massage Therapy. It allowed me to complete my training as well as to obtain the diploma of "massage therapist". I was very excited: I had finally achieved my goals as well as expand and perfect my knowledge of therapeutic massage.
I am more convinced than ever of the importance of massage, of the healing touch I give to other people. I am also aware of the importance of my feelings and psychological conditions. When I take care of myself, I can bring the same level of attention to others. When I practice the massage, I bring my attention to each muscle so that I can optimally adjust the pressure of the massage. What I try to do is massage firmly but gently so that the muscles can relax.
Do you suffer from Neck & shoulder pain, lower back tension, are you stressed out?
Relaxing therapy is the best way to promote a general feeling of well being. It helps to:
relieves stress and anxiety
promotes an overall sense of relaxation
alleviates pain and tension
improves mobility and flexibility
reduces muscular pain and tension
Massage is one of the earliest therapeutic practices for the relief of pain and the restoration of healthy body functions. With everyone leading such busy lives, preventative health is becoming more important as we realise the health dangers of our environment, such as stress, fatigue, long working hours, pollution. Years of research and clinical studies prove that massage therapy helps with more than relaxation. The medicinal benefits of therapeutic massage can have a positive, lasting impact on your health and lifestyle.
It is essential to find time to relax and unwind away from the pressures of everyday life, to help the immune system function at it is best, to restore balance, feel good and enjoy better health.
I provide the following therapies:
