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.

Barbara Helynn Heard
I have practiced lomilomi since 1996 and have taught lomilomi to others since 2005. I practice and teach clinically focused, spiritually grounded lomilomi from the Big Island which I learned from my mentor of 13 years, Hawaiian healer and Mana Lomi founder Maka'ala Yates D.C.. I have enhanced the skills I've gleaned via my studies with Maka'ala with my own practice, as well as with my studies with other teachers.

My intent as a teacher is to see the Light in each person and to help each student to be and to do their very best.

I began doing massage as a teen-ager in the 1970’s. I graduated from Brian Utting School of Massage in Seattle, WA in 1996 and since then have maintained an active private practice in Seattle called Awareness Massage.

Course Details
The Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars: The Lower Body introduces a simple to comprehend manner of engaging your patient’s pain/dysfunction in a manner that is explained with known science. Using neurological-based model of intervention the therapist is able to easily produce lasting changes in pain, movement dysfunction, and loss of range of motion. Covering areas from the thorax through the low back and pelvis, and finishing with the legs, ankles, and feet, the therapist will be able to apply these concepts to a wide range of issues, including issues of mid and low back pain, autonomic dysfunction, hip/pelvic/sacral pain, knee/ankle/foot disorders, as well as more complex issues of the entire body. Comparing and deconstructing some of the common means of evaluating and treating low back and related pain issues gives the therapist a fresh and “sterile” view of pain and treatment. The Foundations Approach is less about learning techniques, but more about learning a deeper model of understanding pain and ways we can utilize the nervous system to elicit change. Older “fascial-based” models will be discussed and compared with the newer neurological models, including autonomic nervous system engagement and cutaneous nerve/skin-based approaches. We will explore the role that posture and asymmetry play with pain, as well as explore alternate ways of determining treatment.

The Lower Body Seminar will teach you a wide variety of mindsets and methods to engage your patient in meaningful change, but just as importantly you will learn novels ways of determining appropriate areas to treat. Integrating myofascial release into an existing practice is not always an easy task, but we will spend time discussing ways to merge myofascial release treatment into your current practice. You will also appreciate how the principles of the Foundations Approach blend well with your current modalities.

In all Foundations Seminars we address moving toward specialization in your practice and how narrowing your range of clients can actually increase your business. Practice problems and suggestions are discussed throughout the class and you will be given the necessary backing to move toward specificity in your practice, which will help it to grow.

Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars are designed for both beginner and experienced therapists. Massage therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech language pathologists will all find value in these fast paced and enjoyable hands-on classes. Using an easy to follow approach, Foundations Seminars will build the confidence of a beginner to start using this valuable modality from the first day. Those who have taken other myofascial release seminars will find fresh a fresh approach to evaluation and treatment. Integrating a nervous system based approach creates entirely new openings for the therapist to follow. Pain which was previously explained in a nebulous manner, taking into account the supposed far-reaching effects of the fascial system can now be explained in a plausible fashion using simple neuroanatomy and neuroscience. Advance your practice and your mind with plausible, enjoyable learning experiences.

The Lower Body Seminar is 20 hours/2.5-days, requires no prerequisites and is approved by NCBTMB for 20 CE Hours. Approval for SLP’s, PT’s, PTA’s, OTR’s, and COTA’s varies on a state-by-state basis. Please inquire for specific approval for these and other professions, as many will have been previously approved.

This course is offered for the therapist’s personal self-care and not to be taught to others or performed on clients.  This class is open to everyone, no previous yoga experience necessary.
Fascial Yin Yoga is a self-care practice to release tight, adherent tissues that form within the fascial network and around joints. Much like Myofascial Release therapy, the practice of Yin Yoga involves poses held for 3 to 5 minutes with lighter sustained pressure at the edge of a restriction. The moisture stimulating stretches liquefy connective tissues, reduce inflammation, enhance flexibility, suppleness and create space in the body and mind. Each held posture is a mini-mediation providing time for self-reflection, mindfulness, breath work, body awareness, and peace. This enormously healing practice is one of self-study and self-care.  The best gift you can give your body, mind and spirit is your attention.
Please Bring: yoga mat, 2 yoga blocks, 2 blankets

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.

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.
