Massage is a great way of alleviating everyday tension. Not sure how? Discouraged because your fingers get sore after just a few minutes of working on a loved one’s tight shoulders? Discover simple and effective ways of working on family and friends.

Part 1 – Your Massage Toolkit

Hands and fingers are commonly used massage tools, yet the forearms and elbows are incredibly helpful when used correctly. We will look at how to perform basic massage techniques with and without oils and lotions.

Part 2 – Managing Your Space

Discover ways of working comfortably within your own space. Not everyone has a massage table tucked away in a closet! We will take a look at working on the floor and seated in a chair.

Please bring 2 pillows, a pareau and a comforter from home. Wear clothes that are comfortable to move in. There will be an option (not required) to use massage creme on the neck, arms and feet.

Hawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique. In this 8 part series, we will focus on the influence of Hawaii’s natural environment to its healing practices. Students will learn lomilomi massage techniques as well as components of oli (chanting), hula (dance), pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language).

maliahandsThis 16 hour series will provide a foundation in lomilomi that is appropriate for use within the family or in a spa setting. Each class will build upon the last so that lessons and themes are intertwined. Topics include but are not limited to Hawaiian terminology for the course, opening and closing protocols, palpation, using the bones as guides, and body systems found in nature. At the close of the series, participants will take part in a hi’uwai sunrise ocean cleansing ceremony together with Kumu Malia’s hula halau.

Currently accepting 8 students. Please send an email to explaining why you are interested in the course.

Malia lei hulaKumu Malia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela strives to live a life of grace. Her halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her uniki under Kumu Hula Puluelo Park in 2002, she now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Malia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. She began her formal training in lomilomi as a teenager. She was licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist in 1998 and as an esthetician in 2002. Her hula practice and lomilomi practice, she says, are the same. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.

MUSCLE RELAX (dry exfoliation, warming body wrap with scalp massage, Integrated Massage, hot tea)

This warming treatment is the perfect way to address chronic muscle tension.  A thorough exfoliation prepares the skin for a wrap that features your choice of Muscle Relax (a warming and topically relaxing blend of  Rosemary, Laurel, and Sweet Marjoram essential oils) or Detoxify (a cleansing blend of Sage, Lemon, Grapefruit, and Juniper Berry essential oils that promote systemic detoxification through the skin) by Snow Lotus Organics.  Integrated Massage techniques can be tailored to suit individual needs.  You are invited to relax afterwards with your choice of hot tea.  We recommend a spicy and warming cup of Tali’s Masala Chai by the Art of Tea.

STRESS RELEASE  (gentle skin polish, hydrating wrap with foot scrub, Classic Massage, hot tea)

This cooling and hydrating treatment begins with a gentle yet thorough exfoliation of the skin.  The microfiber mitt is yours to keep after the treatment.  Your choice of essential oils are blended into a base of aloe and applied to the skin.  Enjoy an invigorating sea salt foot scrub while resting in the wrap.  Warm towels are used to cleanse the skin in preparation for Classic Massage.  You are invited to relax afterwards with your choice of hot tea.  We recommend relaxing with a cup of Egyptian Camomile by the Art of Tea.

Both treatments are 90 minutes long and cost $125.  FOR THE MONTH OF MAY, WE ARE OFFERING THESE TREATMENTS AT THE INTRODUCTORY RATE OF $99!
