ZZZZZZL.) Heartspire Loku Lomi -- Deep Tissue Hawaiian Style: Prone & Supine (Olympia October 24-25, 2020)


Product Description

Instructor: Kim Hartley, LMT; NCBTMB #450029-06

About Heartspire Classes: Each Heartspire class stands alone allowing you to develop skills to call upon to create a profound bodywork session. Infused in each 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. Unless otherwise indicated, no prior lomi experience is required.

Saturday (Heartspire Loku Lomi -- Deep Tissue Hawaiian Style: Prone)

In this deep tissue lomi class, we will begin to learn the art of deep touch Hawaiian style. When working the backside of the body, we are assisting the release metaphysically of the future side of the body through the use of loving touch, listening down to the bone.

We will invite the body to gently yield to our depth of pressure through breath and deep listening skills. We will learn the art of leaning into our tools of the forearm, ulna, elbow, knuckles, palms, pads, fingers, thumbs, skillfully dancing, pushing and pulling with rhythm and flow.  We will learn effective loku lomi strokes alongside the spine, hips, sacrum, scapula, legs and feet. Upon completion you will learn skills to bring back to your practice that will allow you to effectively assist in your clients healing process.

Come to class well hydrated ready to give and receive, touching deep places within, then, washing out, and opening joyfully to a more fully aligned body.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover and pillow; wear loose clothing

Sunday (Heartspire Loku Lomi -- Deep Tissue Hawaiian Style: Supine)

In this class, we will touch on the heart and belly space where the inner child resides in the Hawaiian tradition. We will learn some effective heartspire loku lomi chest and rib work over the drape with permission from our client.  We will also learn some deep belly work including emptying out, and the deep colon drain, with permission from our client.  Then, we will touch into the arms and legs with some stretching and bone washing techniques, assisting the body to release physical and energetic patterns stored deep at bone level.  We complete with the neck, opening the gates of the father at the base of the occiput, and then forearm sweeping the face to open the veil.

Arrive fully hydrated ready to give and receive. Be ready to metaphysically allow your inner child to come forward more fully aligned and present, freed of past burdens, stepping more joyfully into the moment.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover and pillow; wear loose clothing
