Heartspire Lomi Loku: Deep Tissue Hawaiian Style (General Body)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Olympia details and registration

Seattle details and registration

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.

In this Heartspire workshop you will learn the flow, rhythm, and dance-like deep lomilomi loku approach to relaxing, aligning and freeing up the back creating a fabulous and effective session for your clients.  Use of forearms, ulna, elbow, soft knuckles, fingers and thumbs are all a part of this work as well as dynamic and proper body mechanics.

You will learn to give your clients strokes that will warm, circulate, compress, x-fiber, pin and stretch, and myofascially release and free up the spine, metaphysically clearing the future of who they are. Not only will you enjoy learning this work but you will appreciate receiving and feeling the effectiveness of lomi loku in your own body as well.  Infused in the learning are foundational Hawaiian Healing Principles.

Lomilomi Shoulder and Scapula Dance:  A Union of the Sacred Marriage

Olympia details and registration

Seattle details and registration

About This Class: In Heartspire lomilomi, the scapula represents the altar of the mother and father within. In this class we will work with flow and flush around, on top, and underneath the scapula’s, lifting, stretching, opening and freeing the tissue, rooting out what does not serve from our lineage, to free up the truth of the feminine and masculine within.

You will learn lomilomi techniques using flowing forearms, soft knuckles, full hands with focus on the thenar pad, along with lomilomi fingers, to address all the muscles around the scapula, the shoulder cuff, the upper back, and the pec’s. You will learn the joint rotation stretching sequence for the shoulder, elbow, and wrist as well. When the union of the sacred marriage is in place we offer our client’s the opportunity to feel open hearted and spacious in their shoulder girdle, nurtured, and contained within themselves.

Circulatory Lomi

Lomi O Ka Pu’Uwai

Instructor: Kim Hartley

 

fourcircIn this three day workshop participants learn full body lomilomi massage primarily as taught to Kim by Aunty Margaret Machado, one of the first native Hawaiian lomilomi masters to openly share lomilomi outside her family with people from all over the world who had a sincere desire to learn.  Aunty Margaret is known throughout the islands as a national treasure.  Kim had the extraordinary privilege of studying with Auntie for one month.

 

This style of lomilomi requires practitioners to touch with loving hands, forgive ourselves and others, and allow divine healing to flow through both giver and receiver.

This work is known for its deeply healing and circulatory affects on the body, deep compression and range of motion on the joints, and highly beneficial stretching affects on the neck and shoulders.  This style of lomilomi uses very modest draping techniques.

Shoulder Rotations

Olympia Hawaiian Stretching

Richland: 6/25/2017

Seattle details and registration

The first time I taught this workshop everyone was surprised by how a full Shoulder_Rotations_2body stretching experience felt like a full body massage. The stretching techniques you learn will include stretching the fascia of the back, hips, and chest. Then there are amazing joint rotations that use maximum range of motion techniques to stretch every muscle that attaches into the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers, along with the hips, knees, and ankles.

These techniques are highly effective with clients of all levels of flexibility and help improve range of motion and alignment in the body while listening to the client’s signals for end range. When I first learned this work, I immediately integrated it into my work because it was so effective for my own body. Infused in the learning of each Heartspire lomilomi class are foundational Hawaiian Healing Principles and the metaphysical story that are a part of what makes Hawaiian bodywork a unique approach to massage.

In Heartspire Hawaiian lomilomi of the lower body, we look at our metaphysical moss_treerelationship with the sacred well of who we are (sacrum), our lineage through our ancestors (hips), and how we care for and walk on the Earth (legs and feet). The physical work involves deep strokes to release and stretch the fascia of the spine and sacrum. Next are the joint rotations, which deeply stretch the muscles as they attach into the trochanter, knee, and ankle both prone and supine. The spiral prayer to the ancestors is next, which involves a deep tissue technique with the forearms and elbows to cross-fiber the gluteus and lateral rotator attachments. Also included are deep lomilomi strokes on the legs both prone and supine, and last but not least the iliacus and psoas muscles.When you complete this routine with your clients, they will experience a new relationship with the earth beneath their feet, feeling deeply grounded and connected. For me, the joint rotations are one of the most exciting and profound tools I’ve learned in my bodywork career. I hope you’ll feel the same. Infused in this Heartspire class are foundational Hawaiian Healing Principles and the metaphysical story that are a part of what makes Hawaiian bodywork a unique approach to massage.

Olympia details and registration

Combined classes details and registration

In Heartspire Hawaiian lomilomi bodywork the metaphysical story of the work involves aligning the sacred marriage of the mother and father (the scapulas) to allow the freedom and spontaneity of the inner child (the heart and belly) to connect with Spirit. Lomi Loku (deep tissue)

Shoulder_Rotations_2approaches the back and shoulders stretching the fascia first, then deep alignment strokes, and amazing joint rotations that release the muscles as they attach into the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers. Then we open the ribcage, diaphragm, and chest by stretching the fascia and compressing the ribs. Then we use deeply flowing forearm strokes to empty out the belly and rebalance the inner child. The class finishes off with deep work on the neck, scalp, and face.

This workshop leaves you with a very effective session for the upper body to align and rebalance the spine, open the heart and chest, bring healing to shoulder cuff issues and drop the shoulders into a relaxed position, release and free up the elbows, wrists, and fingers, then lift and open the neck, ease tension in the po (skull ), and soften the countenance. Your clients will love this work, it is especially effective for shoulder/arm issues, recovering from cold/flu/sinus issues, and opening up the torso from turtle posture that comes from computer work etc. Infused in this Heartspire class are foundational Hawaiian Healing Principles and the metaphysical story that are a part of what makes Hawaiian bodywork a unique approach to massage.
