Sarah herself began massaging her family at about age five, whenever they were sick or not feeling well in any other way. The healing power of touch fascinated her, and she had a natural will to share it with her loved ones. After extensive traveling, Sarah returns to Honolulu and Still & Moving Center ready to share her exquisite lomilomi massage practice, which she learned from the legendary kumu (master teacher) of lomilomi, Uncle Alva.
As a grateful student of Uncle Alva’s Hawaiian lineage and her family’s Persian lineage, Sarah shares her gift of loving, healing touch with her clients, and we are proud and delighted to welcome her as one of our excellent bodywork therapists at Still & Moving Center.
This traditional Hawaiian massage uses rhythmic movements to promote deep healing with the muscles. There are many styles of lomilomi but most affirm that prayer and loving touch are essential components.
