Lomi Lomi Fusion™
Ramon Mascarenas, LMT has developed a new massage style he calls Lomi Lomi Fusion™. This led him to explore new ways of treating clients. It is inspired by Lomi Lomi ‘Ka’ integrated with elements of many other techniques.
Techniques used during the treatment may include:
Lomi Lomi ‘Ka’is an ancient healing traditions developed by the family lineage of Uncle Kaipo Kaneakua of Oahu. A Hawaiian style massage with slow, smooth moves and energy work to heal through relaxation. ‘Ka’ means “to circulate” referring to the way the hands mimic using a mortar and pestle. The circular motions stimulate positive movement of fluids and energy.
Hot Stone Massageis the heat from the stones creates overall relaxation and increases circulation while also making the muscles more pliable and allowing a deeper, more effective massage in specific problem areas.
Cupping Therapyis an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine that uses suction to draw blood to the skin surface in order to promote healing.
Hydrotherapy(Hot and Cold) is the application of wet towels or special packs. Either hot or cold therapy may be used alone or hot and cold may be alternated. Heat is used to make the muscles more pliable, cold for treating inflammation. Alternating hot and cold increases circulation by forcing blood in and out of a problem area to promote healing.
Myofascial Releaseis the soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. The therapy relaxes contracted muscles, improves blood and lymphatic circulation and stimulates stretch reflex in muscles.
Meditation & Breathingis essential for relaxation. Practicing the meditation and breathing exercises learned during the session when you are at home will help extend the benefits of your massage between sessions.
Joint Mobilizationincludes gentle rocking, shaking and stretching to expand range of motion in stiff or frozen joints.
Tapotementis rhythmic tapping with the hands. It is a stimulating technique used to treat fatigue, increase circulation and loosen mucus in the lungs.
Trigger Point Releaseis the application of pressure to specific points to relieve muscle spasms or knots. It is also used for relief of pain that originates in another part of the body, called referred pain.
Deep Tissue Massagerelieves severe tension in the muscles and connective tissues. You might think of this type of treatment as “good pain”. It is not uncommon to have chronic pain replaced with a slight muscle ache for a day or two after the massage.
