Heartspire Loku Lomi -- Deep Tissue Hawaiian Style: Prone with Kim Hartley

Instructor: Kim Hartley, LMT; NCBTMB #450029-06

In this deep tissue lomilomi class we will begin to learn the art of deep touch Hawaiian style. When working the backside of the body, we are assisting the release metaphysically of the future side of the body through the use of loving touch, listening down to the bone.

We will invite the body to gently yield to our depth of pressure through breath and deep listening skills. We will learn the art of leaning into our tools of the forearm, ulna, elbow, knuckles, palms, pads, fingers, thumbs, skillfully dancing, pushing and pulling with rhythm and flow.  We will learn effective loku lomi strokes alongside the spine, hips, sacrum, scapula, legs and feet. Upon completion you will learn skills to bring back to your practice that will allow you to effectively assist in your clients healing process.

Come to class well hydrated ready to give and receive, touching deep places within, then, washing out, and opening joyfully to a more fully aligned body.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover and pillow; wear loose clothing

Registration Options: Taking both prone and supine loku lomi will give you a basic full-body loku lomi routine and a beginning understanding of the work. Heartspire lomilomi draws from 12 different teachers to create an amazing style of loku lomi massage which is flowing like the ocean using rhythmic strokes as you dance around the body and lean into the work to create depth and connection.
