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 lomi lomi workshops I teach are designed to inspire both beginning and experienced massage therapists to develop awareness and presence within our own bodies, minds & 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 & muscular pain and movement restriction, joint replacement, surgery preparation & 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.

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) uses gentle, rhythmic movements to safely stretch your muscles and fascia. What is unique about AIS is the length of time involved with each and every stretch. AIS uses a 2-second rule for every stretch. Active muscle contractions create a safe and optimal environment for flexibility gains and healing. Repetition remodels tissue and creates a “pumping” action, which increases circulation to the targeted tissues. AIS prepares you and your clients for any activity – from everyday tasks to the rigors of athletics. Prevent injuries and promote faster recovery with a set of dynamic stretching protocols.

In this basic-level class you will learn how to stretch yourself, thereby gaining a better understanding of what each stretch should feel like. You will learn to evaluate your own range and movement potential. This knowledge will enable you to build a home stretching program for your clients as well as give you the skills to instruct your clients in their own self-care. Course content is geared towards healthcare and fitness professionals.
Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch.

Lower Body: Learn how to stretch your low back, hips, knees and calves. These stretches are done mostly lying down.

Upper Body: Learn how to stretch your shoulders, neck and spine. These stretches are done seated and standing.

Please bring massage linens.  Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch.

Course Name: INTRODUCTION TO CHAKRA BALANCING
CE Hours: 6/$130
LIVE STUDY / ENERGY WORK WITH HANDS ON THE BODY
COURSE OUTLINE:
The Chakra Balancing Class is based on the ancient Indian Ayurvedic Marma Point
healing modality and the 7 Major Chakras Energy System in the body, similar to the
Meridian System in Chinese Acupressure.
This class is an introduction to understanding the anatomy of the five energy bodies and
the energy channels called Nadis & the Major Chakras.
DURING THE POWER POINT SECTION of this class, the students will learn how the
seven major chakras influence our body, mind and spirit, personally and collectively.
This is an interactive class beginning with with a guided meditation, affirmations, breath
exercises and printed hand outs for the students to fill in during the power point.
Student participation is encouraged at all times.
The meaning of each chakra is explored in regards to the elemental nature of the
Ayurvedic principals, the seven corresponding glands of the Endocrine system, each
seven year human life cycle and the seven archetypes.
DURING THE PRACTICE SECTION of this class the students will learn techniques for
opening and balancing the seven major chakras. The focus of this class will also be in
learning how to stay " neutral" not diagnosing or trying to fix anything,
just allowing the energy in the body to do the opening and balancing work.
Various energy tools including breathing exercises, intention, affirmation, guided
meditation, aroma therapy and crystals are integrated with Hand On applications.
The students will practice HANDS ON CHAKRA BALANCING on each other, mats or
massage tables may be used.

LEARNING OUTCOMES & BENEFITS
The knowledge of how to understand, activate and balance the chakras can be
integrated into ones personal life or any preferred healing modality. Student will be
encouraged to design a short hands on session to practice on themselves or each
other, integrating the tools of chakra balancing with their preferred healing modality.
Good health and homeostasis depend on the clear and vibrant energy flow in all five
of the the bodies of a person.
When integrating targeted and customized energy work, a practitioner of any healing
modality will be more successful in facilitating a significant shift in the person they are
treating, including oneself, allowing the body to do its own healing work.
