WHAT MAKES ONE MASSAGE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOR BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, while another massage is just mediocre?

WHAT ALLOWS SOME MASSAGE THERAPISTS TO THRIVE IN OUR WORK AND IN OUR LIVES, while other massage therapists get hurt and/or burnt out?

WHAT MAKES AWARENESS MASSAGE LOMILOMI WORKSHOPS POWERFUL, INSPIRING, AND GREAT FUN?

About Lomilomi with Awareness Massage
The lomi lomi workshops I teach are designed to inspire both beginning and experienced massage therapists to develop awareness and presence within our own bodies, minds & spirits.

I am passionate about helping my students develop sensitive palpation skills as well as ways to most effectively use body weight to deliver deep yet gentle massage. I am also passionate about helping my students cultivate self-awareness and self-love. These practices contribute to our ability to give transformative and highly effective massage to our clients.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage is done with DEEP yet GENTLE, LOVING touch. It is clinically focused, structure specific, problem solving massage, which pays special attention to BONES for healing at all levels, if so desired. This work is grounded in healing practices from the Big Island (Hawaii) via the lineage of Aunty Margaret Machado and Dr. Maka'ala Yates, D.C.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage can help relieve pain and encourage ease of movement. Done skillfully this is highly effective treatment massage that also feels wonderful to receive, making it equally valuable in treatment and wellness focused settings.

Awareness Massage Lomilomi can be used to effectively relieve and/or resolve problems related to joint & muscular pain and movement restriction, joint replacement, surgery preparation & recovery, sciatica, injuries from falls and/or repetitive use, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, headaches, asthma and other breathing problems, depression, emotional pain related to loss, high stress lifestyle, cancer, Parkinson's disease, problematic posture, pregnancy, and more.

I am committed to helping massage therapists adopt ways of working which are good for both ourselves and our clients so that we can minimize burnout and injury and can to continue to practice massage well into our elder years if we so desire.

ABOUT THE 27 CE HOT STONES WORKSHOP
This workshop teaches a full body protocol using hot stones.  The protocol used mirrors the one taught in the Lomilomi Fundamentals class, integrating the hot stones.  

Lomi lomi using round, flat stones in motion are used to treat the many levels of healing necessary to help restore balance in the mind-body-soul. Stones are used as an extension of the hands to help better access hard to reach physical restrictions.  The combination of the penetrating heat from the stones with the aligned use of body weight and specific presence and intention is powerful.  It is different than the way hot stones are taught in other hot stones classes that I'm aware of.

Each student will learn how to collect stones using proper Hawaiian protocols, how to heat the stones and control the temperature, and how to clean the stones.

Much attention is given to "transitions" to create consistency through the session. This training is more than just laying of stones onto the patient; it is specific to the individual’s needs as it focuses on problem solving! The more palpatory skill you develop, the more useful stones become.  

This lomi lomi hot stones class may be taken either before or after the Awareness Massage Lomilomi Fundamentals class.  Because they build on each other, taking either one will help you pick up the information in the other more quickly.

Please bring one bottom sheet & one top sheet (100% cotton preferred), face cradle cover or pillow case, 2 thick, cotton hand towels, yoga mat.  This is optional.  Class usually includes a period of movement exploration done lying on the floor, which is carpeted. . Optional: pillow and/or blanket.  Strongly encouraged but not required: healthy contribution for potluck lunch.  Buddha Blends Massage Cream will be used in class and will be provided.  Wear comfortable clothing.

Many therapists who treat low back pain have realized that it is one of the most common issues that their clients/patients deal with and can be quite complex.

The quadratus lumborum although small in size has demonstrated that it can make a big impact on how the low back is able to function. As it tightens, pulling on the ASIS it can cause the gluteal muscles, the 6 lateral rotators, the hamstrings and calf muscles all to “fight” back.

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which travels from your lower back through your hips, buttocks and down each leg; back, front and side. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body. Sciatica is a set of symptoms that may be caused by numerous issues including general compression and/or irritation of one of the five spinal nerve roots.  

When the psoas and illiacus muscles tighten up due to injuries, poor posture, long term sitting, improper ergonomics or even stress, it can affect the structure and function of the pelvis and lumbar, thoracic, and even cervical vertebrae causing pain and limiting movements.

Since the lumbar muscles, psoas, illiacus and sciatic nerve can be affected merely by the ways we stand, sit, and even walk and ultimately affect our ability to perform normal daily functions it essential that we recognize these muscles and the varied ways we can bring stability and restoration to our clients/patients.

This course encompasses a diversity of soft tissue techniques and self-help care used in treating incapacitating pain of the lower body. These techniques will be demonstrated to assist participants to learn how they can assist their clients/patients.


Learning outcomes
Review the anatomy of the low back and pelvis helping to understand how the lumbar muscles, sciatic nerve and psoas muscles are involved with each other.
Common and uncommon causes of pain associated with back pain.
Discuss different available treatment options

Practice techniques for palpating, stretching, and releasing the quadratus lumborum and low back muscles.
Practice techniques for palpating, stretching, and releasing the gluteal muscles, lateral rotators and hamstrings.

Practice techniques for palpating, stretching, and releasing the psoas and secondary thigh flexors.
Learn and practice self-help exercises to assist and prevent injuries and pain.

The course presents for manual, movement therapists, and dance professionals recent research on the critical, yet generally overlooked role, fluids and fascia play in functional movement, manual therapy, and dance. Developing manual and movement skills, proprioceptive engagement and interaction with fluids suggests how participants may acquire immediate applications to their client population.

Professionals tend to circulate and educate among other professionals in their own field. The tendency for “birds of feather to flock together” is understandable, yet this practice can lead to a narrow and restrictive focus whereas viewpoints outside of our field can make valuable contributions. The worldwide linking of diverse fields and cross pollinating of practice and theory yields rich rewards and forms partnerships for future study.

Dr. Robert Schleip, pioneer of modern fascia studies and director of the Fascia Research Institute at the University of Ulm, has said:  "As I am learning more and more…just being touched by the outside is not sufficient. You need to actively move in the proper way. So, I think in the future we should all be practicing both modalities” [manual and movement therapy].

Why this class?

1. Presentation of the essential role fluids play in functional movement. Why do some move like slumbies (combination of slugs and zombies) and others seem to flow like silk?
2. Current research based theory and functional applications in movement and manual therapy designed to increase your awareness and skills regardless of your certification or licensure.
3. Opportunity to schmooze, cross pollinate and learn from professionals in other fields.
4. An opportunity to interact with several videos (some of which are unique creations of the instructor and not seen outside this class) that will challenge paradigms of how people and tissues move with elegance.

Prerequisites: Open to manual/massage therapists, personal trainers, physical therapists, dance instructors, Pilates, Gyrotonic and yoga instructors.

Professional Ethics for Bodyworkers

6 CE contact hours / NCBTMB approved
Subject: Sports Therapy

In the rapidly expanding field of massage therapy, concerns regarding ethical behavior and practice are also on the rise. Given the intimate setting of bodywork, it is crucial to establish a safe environment and a clear understanding between client and therapist as to what is expected. Therapists must also be able to effectively communicate within the parameters of each individual's unique personality, including their own.

The intent of this workshop is to define the broad scope of ethics, empower each therapist with their own personal Code of Ethics, and explore possible ethical situations which will challenge participants to make good decisions as to how they respond.

Prerequisites:
Class is open to all message therapy students and LMTs.

Please Bring:
Writing utensil, paper.
