About Caroline Kane Massage Therapist | Ebb & Flow
I founded Ebb & Flow in 2019. I am a Holistic Massage Therapist and Lomi Lomi Practitioner working from a tranquil space in the beautiful village of Summerhill. I have always had an interest in Holistic health and wellness. I consider massage to be a necessity for healing and a gateway to a healthier, happier life. I base this on my experience of healing in my own life. My work is particularly suited to young people and those who have had traumatic experiences.
Touch was never meant to be a luxury. It is a basic human need. It is an action that validates life and gives hope to both the receiver and the giver
– Irene Smith
Massage therapy for healing
I am passionate about massage as it forms a valuable part of any wellness and self-care practice. I have benefited from various forms of bodywork and a range of other healing modalities over the years. This supported my decision to do training and become a massage therapist. Our modern lives tend to be stressful and fast paced and require us to spend long periods seated. Massage can alleviate the pain associated with the aches and pain that result. It helps increase seratonin, the chemical responsible for maintaining mood balance. It also helps balance the nervous system and promotes lymphatic drainage thereby boosting elimination and supporting a healthy immune system.
I have specialised in Lomi Lomi massage as it aligns with all the elements of massage therapy that I love. I am excited to invite you into my beautiful and peaceful retreat-like space.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I do to ease pain in my back, neck and shoulders?
These days most of us spend long periods sitting at our desks and in the car. This can lead to poor posture, resulting in pain and tension and causes your back muscles to become weak. Holistic Massage and Lomi Lomi Massage can help alleviate pain and improve your posture. If you are suffering with back, leg and neck pain, muscle tension and spasm then book your massage.
What are the best ways to do a detox?
The concept behind detox is to prepare for the safe removal of toxins from your body. The soft or deep flowing moves used in massage treatment boosts this process. This encourages toxins to move out of the body quicker. It also allows blood, our very life, to flow freely through our arteries and veins. It also releases energetic blocks and imbalances.
What can I do to create some 'me' time?
Having a regular massage is a wonderful way to create a space for ourselves. We all lead busy and fast-paced lives these days. Sometimes we neglect our own self-care and leave it at the bottom of the pile. A massage session at Ebb and Flow is like a private retreat restoring you to a place of peace and calm.
What is Lomi Lomi Massage?
Lomi Lomi Nui or ‘temple style’ Lomi Lomi Massage is a healing and ancient Hawaiian style of bodywork. This type of massage releases tension in the body. It is a complete healing system where touch, rhythm and ancient wisdom come together. This allows healing to occur. The ancient Hawaiians believed that we store memories in every cell of the human body not just the mind. The practitioner uses long flowing strokes like the ebb and flow of the ocean. With their hands, elbows and forearms they help the body let go of old patterns and behaviours. This can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
What is Holistic Massage?
Holistic means whole. Holistic massage affects the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of the body. It not only eases tension and stress in the body but has a subtle yet profound influence on all the systems in the body. It supports the body’s ability and desire to heal itself.
I have never had a massage before. What massage do you recommend for a beginner?
At Ebb and Flow we change treatments as required to suit your needs and comfort level as much as possible. We work with your body to bring you the most relief. If you are suffering with back pain, I recommend my back, neck and shoulder massage. If the pain is less localised, I recommend a full body massage. We also offer facial treatments that include a relaxing scalp Massage. If you are still unsure of what treatment is best for you please call me today.
