Statement on Kia-Ora Wellness Center
Kia-Ora in native Maori, New-Zealand language means ‘Have Life be well’ or ‘be Healthy’. Our goal at Kia-Ora Wellness is to help reduce stress, inflammation and pain, without a pill. Helping you shed fat, burn calories and manage your weight loss goals is an added benefit.
The decision to start Kia-Ora Wellness is to bring the same amazing experience I discovered as a tourist in Auckland, New Zealand to anyone who needs pain or stress relief. I have been a wellness advocate and active runner since 2011, and over the years developed runner’s knees, which hinders my performance, due to pain. While on a trip to Auckland, I tried a wellness remedy that was unfamiliar to me. This remedy used Thermal Dynamic Technology, which is a state of the art pod machine, designed to help reduce stress, inflammation and pain, using heat and vibration. This was one of the best experiences of my life. I left the session with much less inflammation in my knees, a great feeling of wellness, and had my best night sleep in a long time. The best part was I burned almost 600 calories during the 30 minutes session. This was awesome.
Hence began my in-depth research about the benefits of thermal dynamic technology, hyperthermic conditioning, infrared, and vibration massage. I am very impressed by the promising results of the research available on this technology, particularly with the established wellness protocols. Research shows that infrared and dry heat dilates blood & lymph vessels, and vibration helps to relax muscles. This combination of heat and vibration massage will increase your heart rate, thus improving blood flow, and subsequently increase the uptake of oxygen to areas with inflammation or pain. This improves symptoms and burns calories. This machine also provides resistance bands for a full body workout, to help burn extra calories. Get ready to restore, recharge and reset your body.
