Stress, Tension, Stiffness
We deal with (actually resolve) these conditions, which are precursors to deeper, harder pain, with¬† two approaches, Lomilomi¬†Massage, Big Island Style, and Relaxerciseô.Relaxerciseô is a movement therapy -- a tool we teach over several inexpensive classes, that has the real capability of dissolving stress and relieving pain for the rest of the life of anyone who practices it.¬† For how it works, more in-depth discussion of it's benefits and a class schedule, please click on this Relaxerciseôlink.
Lomilomi¬† is the most powerful NON-painful, restorative massage we know of.¬† Growing from an Hawiian tradition thousand of years old, it¬†addresses all the systems of the body: respiratory, digestive, circulatory, musculatory, glandular¬†and nervous.¬† All of this occurs in a peaceful, nurturing setting, almost as if the client is being rocked gently by the waves of the warm¬†Pacific waters of Hawaii itself.¬†¬†Compared to most any other style of massage, the¬† touch is light, yet it exerts a profound effect on¬†not only the physical body, but on the emotions as well, facilitating¬†release of deeply¬†held tensions that¬†bind the digestive tract, restrict breathing and slow down lymph function.¬† The effectiveness of the massage is enhanced -- deepened by the simultaneous application of Huna energy (see Huna Healing) by Rebecca Vogler, our Huna Master. Note that this is not a full Huna Healing treatment, but one which is carefully tailored to fit into a 1-hour format for easy affordability.
In turn, with these combined treatments, the results of those tensions are¬†often released: headaches ease away, digestive blockages dissolve and breathing deepens and lengthens.¬† These breatkthroughs are¬†often lasting, but if not - if the underlying (root) causes haven't been completely resolved --¬†we have other processes to cause such resolution (see¬†Muscle Memory Release ).
It is natural to combine these two treatments, because Lomilomi is a subset of Huna, Lomilomi being the hands-on healing application of a long-established body of knowledge and accrued wisdom of the body, mind and spirit.
Lomilomi massage is also our treatment of choice for those who are new to bodywork as a process for permanently resolving pain, rather than one which is palliative, or simply lessens pain for awhile.¬† Many of us¬†still relate to allopathic medicine (Western medicine, as we know it) as the only treatment¬†we feel comfortable with, even though it has failed to resolve our¬†pain.¬† This is because we have some familiarity with it, and some sense of knowing how it works. The unfamiliar is, by nature for human beings, often scary.
Since massage has, over the last few decades, become increasingly recognized as having therapeutic value, it has become more familiar and more easily approachable.¬† Therefore we have looked for a massage technique that is at once gentle and nurturing, at the same time powerfully effective.¬† We believe we have found this in the combination of Huna Healing and Lomilomi massage.
A couple of our clients have agreed to share their experience of Lomilomi with you:

"It¬† was most satisfying.¬† I felt¬†that my body was back in tune with itself.¬† It was very grounding and centering .¬† Having the masculine/feminine balance in the room was very important for me Ė sometimes I get too much feminine energy.¬† I've found that non-threatening masculine energy is very necessary for a well-balanced life."
