Welcome to Habitat Massage and Wellbeing

Habitat is all about helping you live a fuller, more joyful and balanced life. It’s a Northcote, Melbourne business born from founder Michael Cauce's passion for supporting personal, community and environmental wellbeing. Through his experience and training in different modalities, Michael has developed a unique signature massage - the Deep Lomi Massage Blend. ie. Deep tissue massage (/ remedial massage) combined with Polynesian Lomi Lomi (/Ka Huna).

This amazingly rejuvenating and dynamically flexible style has the capacity to address a broad array of issues in the physical, mental and emotional fields.
