Instructor: Kim Hartley
This class teaches a full-body Hawaiian lomilomi protocol created by pulling strokes from several different Hawaiian lineages to create Heartspire Lomilomi. You can take one, two, or three days of the course. The strokes use soft/deep techniques with body weight and leverage, which include the use of the soft underbelly and the ulnar blade of the forearm, elbows, hands, soft knuckles, and fingers.
Heartspire lomilomi is flowing like the ocean while using rhythmic strokes as you dance around the body and lean into the work to create depth and connection. There are also gentle stretching techniques included to increase range of motion and restore joint mobility. 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.
Registration Options: To encourage therapists to refresh those parts of lomilomi that they might not do as well as others, or to provide a taste of lomilomi to someone who has never studied it before, we have taken this class and are offering it both as a full three-day class, or as three individual one-day classes. If you would like to register for just one or two days, please click on the following links to register, otherwise continue on to register for the full three-day class.
