Styles of Bodywork

 

LOMI LOMI

Lomi Lomi is an ancient and sacred form of massage from Hawai'i. Its aqueous nature induces deep relaxation and release on several levels. This bodywork uses nurturing touch, sound vibration, and energy work to bring the recipient in closer communication with their body, mind and spirit.

Shamanic principles and techniques specific to the Hawai'ian culture and sacred lineages can be utilized in each session. They include:

  • Healing with Shells - an energy work done with the aid of shells
  • Bone Washing - releasing memory and trauma held in the fascia
  • Pohaku - sacred hot and cold stone massage
  • Accessing the Shadow & Creating Space
  • Opu Huli - Abdomen massage. These Hawai'ian words mean "Turn The World Upside Down.
  • Resetting the Uterus - a gentle technique that has been known to heal and address infertility, hormonal imbalance, and ancestral healing
  • HA Breath - A deep breathwork session (minimum 60 min session)

Lomi Lomi accommodates all pressure preferences. I use apricot kernel oil and pure essential oils. A consultation is necessary before entering the Temple Lomi Lomi, and a healthy therapeutic relationship must be developed before this sacred space can be occupied.

Strictly therapeutic; treating Women, Men & Children.

The shamanic principles and techniques were passed to Emily through revered teachers of Sacred Lomi Lomi. Mahalo nui loa to Harry Uhane Jim, Sila Lehua Bray Jim, Karen Lealoha Carroll, Jairo Kealoha Cardona, Dennis Kamalu Stovall, The Hawai'ian People & the 'Aina


THAIATSU & THAI

I provide Thaiatsu and Thai Massage on a comfortable Thai Massage mat. These Asian modalities affect the body's tissues on a deep level through walking on the body, elegant stretches, acupressure point and energy flow stimulation. While every body will benefit from Thai & Thaiatsu massage, athletes, dancers, yogis and those who are exercising regularly will find the passive stretching in this bodywork especially compelling.

  • THAIATSU : features walking on the body at acupressure points and passive stretching. This modality is very deep, and very detoxifying. The meditative nature is calming and restorative to body, mind and soul.
  • THAI : features deep thumb presses, palm presses, and passive stretching. The effect is very similar to Thaiatsu, but the experience is slightly different due to the thumb and palm presses instead of walking on the body.

Thai and Thaiatsu bodywork utilize a system of energetic channels that exist in the body.  In Thai massage, the system is called Sen, which loosely translates as Conduit. The more widely recognized Chinese Meridian system is very similar and many energy lines are the same or similar. The result is a very balanced and free-flowing peaceful bodywork experience.

Thai bodywork is done fully clothed without oil. Please wear or bring non-slippery work out or lounge clothes. 

Strictly therapeutic; treating Women, Men & Children.
