Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love." Rumi
Bodywork has been an ever evolving journey for me. After 15 years of practicing as a massage therapist, I am more in love with this healing work then ever. My heart overflows with gratitude for this path. I am continually humbled by the clients who come to see me, the strength of their vulnerability in sharing their journey and the miracles that take place upon the alter of the massage table.
I have studied and received training in many modalities of bodywork. I am constantly learning and refining my skills, including Shamanic, intuitive and energetic healing. Every session begins with a lovely dialogue and spiritual coaching, which releases mental and emotional blocks, so that you are open to more fully receive. This dialogue also helps us co-create an intention, that I can hold for you throughout your healing session. At the completion of the session you will be given plenty of time to integrate.
Sessions are $80/hour. Minimum treatment time is 90 minutes and you can schedule up to 4 hours. It is my honor to create a customized healing session for you. Mahalo and Blessings.
Heartworks Style Lomilomi:
A traditional style of Lomilomi originating on the island of Maui and passed down to Sherman Dudoit. In 'Old Style' Lomilomi the hands become an extension of the heart, poring a waterfall of Aloha into the receiver. Wavelike and rhythmic strokes flush the lymphatic system, releasing stuck and/or blocked energies. Conscious breath of both giver and receiver, infuses light into every cell, restoring balance, opening the heart and creating an abundant flow of well being.
Temple Style Lomilomi:
A style of Lomilomi that Kahuna Abraham Kawaii synthesized from his studies with numerous healers and Kahunas on the island of Kauai. Long full body strokes that move in an uninterrupted flow will drop you into a trance like state, where healing occurs on many dimensions. Memories and patterns that have been held in the cellular structure of the body are released and replaced with light and Aloha. Conscious breath connects giver and receiver to ke Akua, Great Spirit, inviting healing grace to pour in.
Big Island Style Lomilomi:
This lineage of Lomilomi comes from the Big Island of Hawaii and Aunty Margaret Machado's halau. It incorperates a combination of therapeutic application and spiritual intention. Repetitive and nurturing strokes release tension with ease from the physical body. Aunty Margaret's philosophy was one of pure love. "If your hands are gentle and loving, your patient will feel the sincerity of your heart and the love of God will flow through both of you."
Deep Joint Rotations
Many traumas can hide themselves in the major joints of the body. Suffering, un-healthy patterns, and emotions, including those from past lives and ancestral lineage can become crystalized in these areas. Through the "surgical strength" application of joint rotations these hardened cells are scraped away and given the opportunity to release. This can create freedom beyond imagination. Deep joint rotations requires penetrating awareness on behalf of the giver and the conscious breath of both participants as we co-create a healing experience with Spirit.
Deep joint rotations can be a stand alone treatment or added to any Lomilomi session (60 minutes)
Traditional Thai Massage
Performed on a comfortable mat on the floor, Thai massage moves the receiver through a series of stretches while applying compression style massage using palms, thumbs, elbows and feet. Energy lines are opened throughout the body inviting all of the organs and body systems to function at their optimum efficiency. Thai massage is a sacred healing technique that promotes well being and balance. The receiver remains comfortably clothed and is invited to remain passive throughout the session.
We will invite in the spirits of basalt, marble and jade stones into your healing session. Smooth, hot and cool stones create an energizing and relaxing effect on the body and mind. Warm stones are used for the massage itself, melting tense muscle into a puddle of bliss. Cool stones are consciously applied to areas after deeper work, reducing inflammation. The combination of hot and cool stones is excellent for the immune system and all of the body systems. The grounding, nurturing qualities of the stones will offer you profound sense of peace and rejuvenation.
The plant spirits of nine different essential oils will be called into your healing session. Like rain, these oils will be dripped along the spine and specific areas of the body. Each oil carries it's own unique healing qualities. Many are potent in their anti inflammatory and detoxifying properties. When applied to the body they flush out any dis-ease that may lie dormant within your tissues and energize your immune system. You will receive a full body, Lomilomi massage with this treatment. The heavenly effects of this journey is extraordinary.
(Minimum time for this healing is 2 hours. Please add $20 for the oils)
Rocks and Raindrops
Combining the grounding energies of stones with the high vibrational qualities of essential oils, you will experience heaven on Earth. (Please add $20 for the oils)
This energy balancing session begins with a loving dialogue where we discover a root memory that may be blocking a free flow of life energy to move through you. Using muscle testing we will then discover where this memory is held in your physical body. As you rest on the massage table I will use a combination of tools, including rattles, stones and feathers to open the energy field. The memory is released and replaced with Divine light, reestablishing the rivers of life energy to flow freely. (This session in 60 minutes)
