Could You Choose Ease by Changing Your Point of View?

Scott Murray - Thursday, August 14, 2014

Ease in your life is closer than you think.  How many times do you come up against a so called 'brick wall' in life and wonder how you are ever going to scale it?  What if you didn't have to?  What if you could simply change your point of view and choose a different reality?

This is winter at Little Cove, Noosa.  The shot was taken in panorama.  I parked my stuff and looked at the rock wall.  Then I turned 90 degrees and saw a glimps of the ocean.  I started to wonder.  Then I turned a further 90 degrees and saw the blue green seas with many surfers going with the flow of the waves and having a wonderful time.

I wondered even more.  How many people come to a rock wall, crevice or road block in life, get overwhelmed and think they live in a no choose universe - so they start thinking about how to 'overcome' the obstacle?  What if something so simple as spinning around in the spot you are in, gives you differing points of view with endless options.  Would that give you more ease?  Could you choose it?  Would you choose it?  For you?  What if there was no right or wrong, just a choice.

Yes climbing over the rock wall could have been fun, if not a little challenging.  But riding the waves with the energy of the ocean supporting you, feeling the joy of others around you doing the same and taking things a little easier for a change instead of trying to figure a way to 'overcome' something.

How have you changed your point of view and invited more ease into your life?  Could you do it more often...

Massage Noosa Kahuna Style

Scott Murray - Thursday, May 23, 2013
Kahuna massage, based on the ancient lomi lomi technique from Hawaii, is a full body oil massage like no other. It is gentle but also a deep flowing form of massage that will relax, revitalize, and revive you

Enjoy the video - filmed with a GoPro on my head so you get to see what I see - don't watch if you get a little sea sick!

At its heart, Kahuna connects mind, body and spirit. These three aspects to humans are linked, and through our neglect of any or all of them in our daily life, we often disconnect them. Kahuna massage is a starting point to help reconnect and balance the three so you become more aware of all that you are.

Ka Huna bodywork is performed largely with the forearms and uses a lot of long flowing strokes to relax the mind, soothe the body and help ease the tension from the muscles.  The firmness of the massage can range from deep relaxation (soft) to deep tissue (very firm).  The strokes flow from the neck to the feet and a combination of all the limbs and muscles in between. It really is a massage like no other.  It is quite easy to "loose" yourself while receiving the massage.

What would it take for your body to feel totally blissful?

Apart from the obvious benefits of relaxation (de-stress, clear mind, slower pace), and health benefits (better circulation, improved digestion, improved mobility...)  your body can achieve a state of bliss when receiving a Kahuna massage combined with energy healing.  Being professionally trained in both, and having received many different forms of healing, I know what feels blissful for my body and invite you to experience the same for your body.

Bliss feels different for everybody and that’s why all Body Bliss sessions are personalized to suit your beautiful body.  All bodies are beautiful and need to be treated with joy, love and respect to facilitate the healing process.  A massage with Scott goes beyond “a treat” – would you be willing to gift an experience beyond your imagination to your body?

Would you be willing to allow your body moments of bliss in your healing, rejuvenating journey? 

What health benefits are possible for your body when each of its cells are filled with bliss, love and joy?

The best way to find out is to call Scott on 0434 245 706, to find a time when your body can experience a body bliss massage.

"I first went to Scott for a massage about 2 years ago.  Recently I have been suffering from back pain, headaches and sleepless nights, but after 3 sessions with Scott the back pain has gone and I am sleeping again. Scott is very in tuned with the person in front of him and has a great knowledge of different types of therapy that might help you. I am looking forward to my next appointment"

Holistic Bliss Reviews Body Bliss Massage Noosa...

Scott Murray - Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Man Talk by Holistic Bliss (thanks Rod!): Shining the Light on Kahuna

When they told me that my project this month was to experience a Kahuna massage, I immediately had visions of massive Polynesian bare-chested men in grass skirts- some thumping religiously on drums with others walking on my back! I can’t tell you of my relief when Scott Murray opened the door to his lovely home in the leafy outskirts of Noosa (minus the grass skirt and drums and wearing plain clothes). Scott is a truly gentle man who, I was soon to find out, was both gifted and dedicated to improving the lot of his fellow humans.

While I filled out the usual client intake form we talked about my ailments (too many to list after decades in the construction industry and even longer riding motorbikes) and what Kahuna is all about. Originating in Hawaii as part of a right of passage, it has served those islanders for centuries. Traditionally in ancient Hawaiian Lomi Lomi was practiced in four contexts:

  1. As a healing practice of native healers -- kahunaʻau lapaʻau (healers) and kahuna hāhā (diagnosticians)
  2. As a luxury and an aid to digestion, especially by the ruling chiefs (aliʻi)
  3. As restorative massage within the family
  4. By ʻōlohe lua (masters of the Hawaiian martial arts)

Although the term Kahuna Lomi Lomi is widely used in contemporary writings, traditionally the people who performed Lomi Lomi were called ka poʻe lomilomi (the massage people) or kanaka Lomi (massage person). The word kauka is the Hawaiian version of doctor. Like many endeavours in old Hawaii, Lomi Lomi was conducted with prayer and intention.

I had heard that Kahuna was usually performed on the naked body so you may understand my relief when, as I walked into the warm and inviting treatment room, Scott uttered the words, “disrobe to whatever you’re comfortable with”. The next 90 minutes were the most relaxing I think I have ever experienced. While rolling, rubbing and squeezing out the bad stuff, it envelopes you into a sort of euphoric trance. When I arose from the massage table more than an hour and a half later, I was a little wobbly on my feet. That’s right, I felt so relaxed I almost felt a bit tipsy. How relaxed is that? Very, very relaxed!

So how does Kahuna measure up as a restorative, healing process? Well I slept very soundly that night, which I never do and the next day I felt full of beans, even my troublesome busted, arthritical leg was happy to greet the day. Scott calls his business ‘Body Bliss Massage’ and said before we started that he hoped I would feel ‘blissed’ after the treatment. I have to say I did! I recommend to prospective clients to plan to do nothing else for the day after you have the big Kahuna, as your mind and body just totally crank down!

Mahalo nui loa A hui hou kakou  (Thank you very much, until we meet again)

Thanks so much Rod for allowing me to work with your body!  Gratitude for you.  If you would like to see more client testimonials then have a look here.

Crystal Bowl Healing Combined with Kahuna Massage

Scott Murray - Saturday, November 17, 2012

Crystal Bowl healing is a grand compliment to a Kahuna Massage.  The beautiful sound that emanates from the vibrating bowl compliments the vibrational energies experienced with a Kahuna Massage.

If the experience of the deeply moving, transformational Kahuna Massage on your body, mind and spirit is not enough, the vibrations from the bowl are sure to turn your body to jelly and your mind numb.  A perfect combination for you to receive the deepest relaxation possible from your massage.  What else is possible?

The crystal bowl I use is made from the rocks of the four vortexes in Sedona, Arizona USA.  I slight tap and some gentle circling with the raw hide stick and the bowl produces some of  the most beautiful sounds possible.  The vibration passes through my hand into your body or directly from the bowl to your body, depending on the positioning and your body's requirements on the day.

The vibrations work on a cellular level and help release stuck energies in your body with ease.  It is a bit like choosing something that brings you absolute joy.  Your body can't feel pain/intensity when it is experiencing joy, laughter, bliss or happiness.

It may be just the treat your body is after.  Request it with your next Kahuna Massage, the change may be more than you imagined possible. The  Vibrating Crystal Bowls are available only at Body Bliss Massage Noosa, where Healing is Beyond Your Imagination!

Until we meet again, choose bliss

Run, Run, Run as Fast as You Can or Choose It!

Scott Murray - Saturday, October 06, 2012

How many times in your life have you asked for something to turn up and then as soon as it arrives you run as fast as you can in the opposite direction?

What if you could ask for things to turn up, then choose them when they arrive and have gratitude?  Would this create more of what you desire in your life?

Sometimes we ask for things and they don't show up how we thought they would.  Often times what shows up is far grander than we could have imagined.  What would it take for this to happen more often?

What is the benefit of running away from what we have asked for?  Well that depends.  How much change do you really desire?  When we ask for things often the change that comes with that can bring on a little bit of overwhelm, a few distractors like fear, anger, resentment or spontaneous bouts of joy, laughter and happiness.  No matter what happens we can always choose whether we react to it with an emotion or observe it as just an interesting point of view and choose to be in allowance of the change.

Enjoy Your Choices!

What is Your Body Whispering to YOU?

Scott Murray - Saturday, August 25, 2012



 Waking up this morning I was feeling a little sluggish and not to inspired to do too much.  It was overcast but my body was desperately hinting to go to the beach.  There was enough blue sky to make a pair of shorts from and spending time on the beach with grey skies isn't really inspiring for me.

My guidance kept suggesting I go anyway.  Given that we live 15 mins from the beach, I know that the weather there can be quite different, so I grabbed my stuff and off I drove.

 The skies were filled with clouds at the beach as well, but you could possibly sew a sheet if you put all the blue sky patches together.  I asked the question...What would it take for the clouds to dissipate and blue skies and sun come out to play?  And then lay down and created a little 'me space' to commune with nature.

Within 30 minutes I was getting a little hot.  I rolled over and looked up, to my complete surprise there was not a cloud in the sky!  How does it get even better than that?

After a little people watching (it fascinates me seeing what others do with their bodies, how they nurture them or not!, and watching  the interactions within groups and  people watching other people move about the beach - it may be a little weird to you  but I just love bodies and people) and a short swim in the cool end of winter waters, my inspiration kicked in.

I created a blog post, did some energy work on my businesses and the new bodywork classes we have coming up soon, came up with an idea to make the most of the beach, exercise and a few friends so everyone can benefit and soaked up some much needed vitamin D!

I am so grateful for my body for being persistent (almost like my kids!) and getting me off to the beach.  Sometimes our bodies whisper stuff to us so many times that will benefit us, we just need to listen and be aware.

 What is your body whispering to YOU?

I look forward to you letting me know in the comments below!

Until we meet again, Choose Bliss!

What If Ease In Your Body Was a Choice?

Scott Murray - Thursday, May 10, 2012

 As a facilitator of change I receive many requests for healing or ease in particular parts of people's bodies.  Some therapists promote themselves as 'healers' that can make dramatic change for clients, and I believe this is possible.

But what if the client isn't willing to receive the change?

Nobody likes a painful body.  But sometimes what you would have to give up ie. the pain, stiffness, soreness,  is far more inviting for people than change.  You read it right.  Sometimes what the pain means for people far outweighs what pain free could do for them.  What could you be if your body had ease every moment of the day?

What would you have to give up for your body and you to choose ease?

 Really it is just a choice.  I have in the past woken up with a very painful back, so much so that I didn't know how I was going to be able to get out of bed, let alone deal with the children.  However, being the great manipulators that they are, the children convinced me to take them to the beach.

 As I prepared to take them to the beach the back pain eased a little.  As we got to the beach it was virtually non existent.  Playing on the beach I forgot how sore it was as I was having too much fun.  Upon our return home the pain started to trickle back.

So was pain a choice?  Yes.  I know I have re-created pain after a fantastic massage as well.  My body was so used to being in pain, if it wasn't there I would re-create the familiarity of pain to keep me stuck, limited and small.  Nobody wants to be the grandness they can be when they are in pain.  It is much safer to limit your self and cut off all your ability to receive, or is it?

I have also been willing to receive far beyond anything I have experienced before when having a bodywork session and the difference in my body afterwards has been nothing short of amazing.

What would you be willing to receive if you had no limits?

How are you using pain in your body to limit your expression of life?

What change can you facilitate for yourself?


I love facilitating change for people and have expanded Body Bliss onto Facebook.  If you would care to "like" the page and even say hi that would be great. 

I look forward to sharing more with you in the future.  I still have more changes coming to help you add more ease in your body and life


Choose ease
