WOW! So excited... Salt Blocks added to massage.

I am excited to announce that I will be using Himalayan Salt Blocks during craniosacral sessions and at the end of both my Synergy and Sacred Stone massages! They are to assist in detoxification and complete the physicality of the treatments on a cellular level.

These salt blocks are made of the same material as the salt lamps, are palm sized, and will be placed in your hands when I have completed the massage of your arms and allow them to rest there until the session is finished.

For those who aren't familiar with the Himalayan salt out there, here's a bit about what it offers you:

* The Himalayan salt comes from underground caves the foothills of the Himalayan mountains - a chunk of salt crystal rock that was taken from the mines and makes use of the minerals that have been preserved for millions of years, releasing their special properties

* promotes a healing effect for your skin

* has been known to have a healing effect on the mind encouraging concentration and focus.

* promotes a sense of rejuvenation.

* helps aid your mood and overall sense of calm.

* the salt has a strong potential for cleansing not only your environment, but also your skin and breath

* The salt is a natural ionizer. It promotes negative ions. Negative ions are a good thing. They counteract pollution and toxins within an environment. When you hold a salt block, you are releasing the positive ions carried in your system from cell phones, environmental pollution, etc. You are left feeling a sense of well-being, like you feel after a strong thunderstorm or a walk by the ocean.

It's exciting to add this to my sessions. I already have 2 salt lamps in my bodywork studio, so adding blocks you can actually touch will be extremely beneficial.
I am glad to offer this extra bit of service at no charge for now and am looking forward to hearing how they work for all of you.

Mahalo, in service, Lisa Kai

Lomi Lomi Reflection

People often ask "What is Lomi Lomi?" So I tell them, it's a Shamanic form of ancient Hawai'ian Bodywork based in spiritual traditions of Hawai'i.

Often this is met with a blank stare. Then, if it gets past that, "How does this differ from your regular Synergy massage?" An excellent question! So I respond,

" When I am doing a Lomi Lomi I am not thinking, Hmm... What is going on here? What can I do to work this out? Is this unusual for this person? What tools can I pull out of my bag that would work for their energy and body? I am not thinking any of that. I am not "thinking" at all, I am just listening, being present with the body and it's energy and following that flow."

In these times, people have a hard time wrapping their heads around the fact that I am not here to fix them, or more precisely, fix what ails them.

"Lomi Lomi is not about thinking, it is about being. About being present to your entire being, bringing you back to a state of balance, feeling more complete and in tune with your wholeness. It's about embodying a state of being more in touch with the inner wanderings of your mind and how that affects what is holding in your body on all levels."

Here, I often say what a client from many years back said after a few Lomi's in a row,
"You could put a therapist (meaning psychiatrist) out of business with this. Have fun and good luck with it." This person really GOT IT! So cool, that's it! They hit the nail on the head with that. Mahalo.
