The first time I taught this workshop everyone was surprised by how a full body 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.
