In this class you will learn the art of listening down to the bones with lomi loku, a soft and deep approach that allows the body to guide you in through a series of deep tissue strokes that address the spine, sacrum, and hips in the prone position. Then we will bring the body into supine position and teach the technique of bone washing used with the limbs. Bone washing starts proximal to distal and seeks to follow the bones with a gentle yet deep scrubbing and traction technique that free up the muscle attachments and opens the limbs to easier ROM.
This class opens the door and offers an opportunity to learn at an introductory level some concepts of deep tissue work from the traditional Hawaiian healing arts perspective of lomilomi. You will be able to immediately apply these strokes into your massage sessions and have your clients enjoy the benefits of deep release while feeling listened to within their body without resistance or bracing.
