Therapeutic Massage is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency. It helps you feel more energetic and flexible so you can enjoy the things you want to do in life. Some of the benefits include removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles, increased circulation, and increased flexibility not only the muscles, but also the connective tissues of the body.

Therapeutic Massage also can help with muscle spasms as well as soft tissue injuries by increasing the movement and reducing the overall recovery time thus helping the body in the healing process. In addition, consistent massage has been known to increase balance. It has proven to assist in the healing of a large number of conditions including back pain, surgery recovery, eating and sleep disorders as well as high blood pressure and diabetes among others.

PalmLeaf Massage — Lomi Lomi Fusion™ by Ramon Mascarenas

Ramon Mascarenas of PalmLeaf Massage, has joined HealthSmart. Ramon has developed a unique massage style he calls Lomi Lomi Fusion. It combines Lomi Lomi ‘Ka’, a Hawaiian medicinal massage, with therapeutic techniques. He is a licensed massage therapist, trained in Lomi Lomi ‘Ka’, member of AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association), and a member of Lomi Lomi Association.

The fluid movements of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi ‘Ka’ are based on ancient healing traditions developed by the family lineage of Kaipo Kaneokua. ‘Ka’ means “to circulate” referring to the way the hands mimic using a mortar and pestle. The circular hand movements and long, flowing strokes produce profound relaxation and powerful healing effects.

Lomi Lomi teaching is a lifestyle. Practioners are trained to connect with the client by being “present” during a healing session. This creates a flow of positive energy. Lomi Lomi teaching enhances Ramon’s caring personality to transform massage into a profound relaxation and therapeutic result.
