ZJ1.) Heartspire Lomi Loku: Deep Tissue Upper Body (Olympia November 10-11, 2017)


Product Description

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


Lomi Loku o ka Lani (deep tissue of the upper body) addresses the back and shoulders through the fascia with the deep tissue alignment stroke, spinal bonewashing, and amazing joint rotations to release the weight of the world out through the arms, by rotating the muscles through maximum range of motion as they attach into the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers. We then open the ribcage, diaphragm, chest and belly through fascial release, compression, and deeply flowing forearm strokes to empty out the belly and rebalance the inner child. The class finishes off with the unique Lomilomi approach to Po (the neck, scalp, and face).

This workshop leaves you with a very effective session for the upper body to align the neck and spine, open the heart and chest, bring healing to shoulder cuff issues, dropping the shoulders into a relaxed position, freeing up the elbows, wrists, and fingers, and softening the countenance in the po (skull). Your clients will love this work, it is especially effective for opening up the torso from turtle posture, shoulder/arm issues, recovering from cold/flu/sinus trouble. 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.

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