WHAT MAKES ONE MASSAGE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOR BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, while another massage is just mediocre? WHAT ALLOWS SOME MASSAGE THERAPISTS TO THRIVE IN OUR WORK AND IN OUR LIVES, while other massage therapists get hurt and/or burnt out? WHAT MAKES AWARENESS MASSAGE LOMILOMI WORKSHOPS POWERFUL, INSPIRING AND GREAT FUN?
About Lomilomi with Awareness Massage
The lomilomi workshops I teach are designed to inspire both beginning and experienced massage therapists to develop awareness and presence within our own bodies, minds and spirits. I am passionate about helping my students develop sensitive palpation skills as well as ways to most effectively use body weight to deliver deep yet gentle massage. I am also passionate about helping my students cultivate self-awareness and self-love. These practices contribute to our ability to give transformative and highly effective massage to our clients.
Lomilomi with Awareness Massage is done with DEEP yet GENTLE, LOVING touch. It is clinically focused, structure specific, problem solving massage, which pays special attention to BONES for healing at all levels, if so desired. This work is grounded in healing practices from the Big Island (Hawaii) via the lineage of Aunty Margaret Machado and Dr. Maka’ala Yates, D.C.
Lomilomi with Awareness Massage can help relieve pain and encourage ease of movement. Done skillfully, this is highly effective treatment massage that also feels wonderful to receive, making it equally valuable in treatment and wellness focused settings. Awareness Massage Lomilomi can be used to effectively relieve and/or resolve problems related to joint and muscular pain and movement restriction, joint replacement, surgery preparation and recovery, sciatica, injuries from falls and/or repetitive use, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, headaches, asthma and other breathing problems, depression, emotional pain related to loss, high-stress lifestyle, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, problematic posture, pregnancy and more. I am committed to helping massage therapists adopt ways of working which are good for both ourselves and our clients so that we can minimize burnout and injury and can to continue to practice massage well into our elder years if we so desire.
