Hawai’ian Bodywork- Lomi Lomi

Hawai’ian Bodywork, also called Lomi Lomi, is an ancient form of holistic treatment, developed on the Hawai’ian islands, that was handed down from generation to generation. There are different lineages of Lomi Lomi that are taught by Kahunas (Spiritual Masters) and differ in strokes techniques, duration, intention as well as focus for the bodywork session. The hallmark of Lomi Lomi are the wave-like, rhythmic strokes that remind of the ocean waves and connect us deeply with the Spirit of Aloha as the powerful life force that brings about profound healing.Lomi Lomi combines massage with energy medicine, heart-centered prayer work, chanting, as well as meditation. Lomi Lomi is designed to release tension, pain, and stress in body and mind and facilitate the restoration of peace, harmony, and well-being in all areas of life. Lomi Lomi is much more than a massage technique. It is a lifestyle, a commitment to the Way of Aloha, living in harmony with all things. Lomi aligns the giver and the receiver with Spirit and facilitates the release of long-held emotional and physical baggage, letting go of tension and old memories that are stored in the cells of our body.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It directly works with the Craniosacral System that is made up of the bones in face and head (cranium), the linings (meninges) of the brain and spinal cord all the way to the sacrum, the cerebrospinal fluid circulating within the craniosacral system as well as additional bony attachments, membranes, and structures within the brain and spine. The Craniosacral System plays a central role in the body and has a strong connection to the nervous system as well as the endocrine and immune systems. The movement of the Craniosacral System creates what is known as Craniosacral Rhythm. Listening to the Craniosacral Rhythm of the client’s body, the therapist can detect areas of restriction and imbalance and release these areas by only using 5 grams of pressure (the weight of a Nickel).CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is based on the original ideas of Osteopathy, developed by Andrew T. Still in the mid-1800s. He believed that the body is a unit where all systems are interconnected and that each and every body has a self-correcting mechanism with an innate ability to heal itself. Based on these concepts, CranioSacral Therapy was developed into an innovative branch of mind body medicine that facilitates and enhances the body’s own natural capacity to heal and restore when traumatic or disease processes have become overwhelming for the body system.In the most general sense, CranioSacral Therapy aims at creating balance and restoring harmony to the body at the level of the core nervous system. Because CranioSacral therapy works by directly accessing the central nervous system, the body is encouraged to most effectively use its inner intelligence to re-pair, re-regulate, and re-harmonize traumas experienced over the course of one’s life, may they be physical, emotional, or psychological. It may help a person to completely release something that has never ‘gone away’, make them more comfortable or function better for a condition that is chronic or irreversible, or just simply allow them to feel more relaxed and in touch with their body.CranioSacral Therapy sessions are performed in a quiet, relaxed setting with the client fully dressed, lying on his/her back on a table. Adjustments can be made if the situation requires a different positioning of the client. Sessions are usually 60 minutes in length.CranioSacral Therapy has been shown to be effective for a wide variety of different conditions, including migraines and headaches, chronic head and neck pain, brain injuries and concussions, stress and tension-related disorders, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, TMJ Syndrome, motor-coordination problems, dystonia, depression, anxiety, Autism, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, digestive problems, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, as well as birth trauma, infant and childhood disorders.
