What you will learn
Level 3 is Trigger Point Therapy.
Trigger Point Therapy works specifically on fatigued, locked up muscles to relieve pain that just doesn’t seem to go away.
Many ailments such as migraines, frozen shoulders, bursitis, tendonitis are often misdiagnosed. The culprit can in fact be overworked muscles that have formed hard nodules which cause the length of the muscle to be strained.
What makes it difficult to diagnose is the concept of referred pain. So the real culprit of the problem is often not the area that is giving the pain. For instance pain in the front of the shoulder is often created by trigger points around the shoulder blade. Many headache problems are caused by the larger muscles of the upper back and around the shoulders. Once these larger muscle groups are released the headache pain is often relieved or at the very least allows the smaller muscles around the neck and head to be released more easily.
By locating the referring trigger point areas and applying pressure with targeted, milking strokes, these tiny knots are released, thereby releasing the entire muscle from it’s state of chronic contraction (The cause of the pain and discomfort).
There are no formal notes given for this level as the emphasis is on feeling through each of the moves. However you are welcome to bring a notebook if written notes will aid in your style of learning.
Morning meditations are usual to help calm the mind and relax the body, move through any blocked emotions and help facilitate the learning process.
Level 3 introduces the main trigger points along the body. We work through them sequentially by working with your partner with constant feedback to be able to get the “feel” of each trigger point area.
Theses trigger points are then integrated into the Level 2 Lomi Lomi massage sequence. The trigger points can be used as a stand alone therapy or incorporated into the Lomi Lomi stroke sequence as much as is desired or required.
The teaching style emphasises compassion, kindness and a relaxed environment with laughter, fun and support to make this learning an easy joyful experience.
After successfully completing level 3 and feeling proficient, you are able to extend your Traditional Old Style Lomi Lomi massage or offer as a stand alone treatment.
You will receive a certificate.
