Holistic Massage School Offers Spring-time Course in Lomi Lomi (Hawaiian) Bodywork

 

Lomi Lomi is a highly spiritual form of body work that originated thousands of years ago in Polynesia, before being brought to Hawaii.” said Paula Curtiss, Founding Director at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health.  “While many forms are passed down from generation to generation, Lomi Ka Ala Hoku, the form taught at Healing Hands, was created by Master Healers (Kahunas) as a ‘Rite of Passage’ ceremony,” she added. 

The intention of Lomi Lomi is to help clear the recipient’s Spirit of unresolved issues and help them gain clarity about their their life-path”, said Jennifer Peterson, Staff Instructor. “The Lomi Lomi practitioner’s job is to facilitate a state of Pono Pono for the recipient; that means conflict free and aligned with the Divine,” she added.

Lomi Lomi is based on a Martial Art form called ‘Lua’, and often is often described as a moving meditation for the practitioner. Ideally the bodywork is performed in a harmonious, “sacred” environment accompanied by traditional Hawaiian music. The massage begins with a prayer for the recipient.  Then, a hands-on body scan is performed to locate areas of tension before initiating passive joint movement to relax, and warm up the body.  A pure coconut oil or an aromatherapy/oil blend is applied as the practitioner ‘dances’ around the table applying smooth, rhythmic, strokes. 

Lomi Lomi practitioners use hands, fingers and forearms to execute the massage. Although the modality has a limited number of strokes, each massage is creatively customized for its recipient. While some report feeling a deep sense of calm following their massage, others describe it as emotionally profound.  Most, however, do report that the experience opened their hearts, and left them feeling especially loving and connected to themselves and others.

In the Lomi Ka Ala Hoku course offered this Spring (starting June 2nd), Jennifer teaches the traditional, full-body Lomi Lomi massage as well as advanced strokes and techniques. Students practice ‘pule’ or pray-full intention, and are encouraged to find a place of acceptance of their clients’ uniqueness and place upon their life’s journey.  Jennifer teaches that it is the practitioner’s un-conditional acceptance of their client that creates a sacred space for healing where the greatest change occurs.

In addition to Lomi Lomi, Jennifer teaches a series three Ayurvedic massage therapies for Healing Hands, namely THE VISHESH; UDVARTANA; and ABHYANGA.  An exceptional practitioner and caring individual, Jennifer has earned the distinction of Lead Therapist for the Spa at the Grand Del Mar Resort in San Diego, where she currently practices Lomi Lomi massage, body-work and integrative Spa therapies.

“To ‘Walk in Beauty’ means to walk in harmony with all living things, says Tiffany.  “It’s about being in that state of awareness where you feel connected to everything around you mind, body and spirit. Incorporating ‘Walk in Beauty’ principles into my massage practice I can help facilitate clients to achieve a higher level of consciousness through grace, surrender, unconditional love and a desire to find your own truth”, she added.

Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HH) has been serving residents through two regional campuses in Escondido and Laguna Hills for over 25 years and just opened a new campus location in San Diego on March 19th.  With more than 80 Holistic Health courses and two Certification Programs to offer, HHSHH is considered a trail-blazer for Holistic Health education in Southern California.

Holistic Massage School Shares How Stress Affects the Body

 

“At Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HH), every member of our faculty is a Certified Massage Therapist familiar with the physical, emotional and mental benefits of Therapeutic Massage”, said Paula Curtiss, Founding Director.  “We have all witnessed the negative impact stress has on our clients and have seen how their body’s resistance to stress caused problems and made them vulnerable to disease.  An important part of our job is to help clients understand how stress impacts their lives, and encourage them to use holistic practices, such as Massage, to counter its negative effects”, she added.

Anatomy for Bodyworkers is a 100-hour course and pre-requisite for HH’s Massage Therapist and Holistic Health Practitioner Programs. It greatly increases the student’s knowledge of anatomical terms and concepts. Instructors take them on a detailed exploration of individual Body Systems, the interaction between Systems, and how they respond to chronic stress.  Below is a list of a few of these Systems and what students learn about how stress leaves its mark:

Musculoskeletal System: When the body is under stress, our muscle tension automatically increases.  Chronic tension patterns may force the body to adapt, creating postural imbalances like tight, rounded shoulders, neck stiffness, and range-of-motion restrictions.

Cardiovascular System: Stress elevates blood pressure and can keep it there, putting chronic stress on veins and arteries.  Stress can also aggravate and even trigger diseases such as Coronary Heart Disease, Ischemic Cardiopathy, Angina and others.

Nervous System: Our Autonomic Nervous System includes a sympathetic nervous system or ‘fight or flight’ response, as well as our parasympathetic nervous system or, ‘relaxation response’. Stress often plays an important role in depression and a variety of mood disorders. While anxiety is a normal response to elevated stress, prolonged stress can lead to the development of extreme anxiety, causing chemical changes that induce panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders or social anxiety disorders.

Endocrine system: Our endocrine system is responsible for manufacturing powerful hormones that help regulate many of our body’s functions and feelings.  When dealing with chronic stress, the Adrenal glands will initially increase the production of stress hormones which increases feelings of anxiety, causes weight gain, sleep disturbances, and digestive problems.  If stressors continue, the Adrenal glands go into a state of maladaptation where they slow down, causing fluid retention, fatigue, lower sex drive and hair loss. The third stage, Adrenal exhaustion, is associated with depression, joint pain, panic attacks, thyroid disorders, severe constipation and Fibromyalgia.

Integumentary System (Skin): Stress exacerbates several skin disorders like Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, and Neuro-dermatitis, a skin disorder that causes severe itching.  In addition, stress is responsible for several forms of hair loss.

Immune System: Stress can make people more susceptible to catching common illnesses, such as colds and flus, and impairs the body’s inflammatory response.  Inflammatory conditions such as autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular issues and rheumatologic illnesses, are all negatively impacted by chronic stress.

An enjoyable, nurturing and proven stress-management activity, massage not only helps the body return to normal after trauma, it also helps speed healing after over-use, injury or accident. When incorporated into a regular holistic wellness plan, massage can facilitate postural re-alignment, improve clarity and emotional balance, and promote optimal physical health and wellness from the inside out!

Massage Therapy School Encourages Student Application for Federal Student Aid

“Whether you are interested in attending a 100 hour Circulatory Massage Course, a 500 Hour Massage Therapy Program, or a 1000 hour Holistic Health Practitioner Program, Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (HH), can assist you in finding the very best financial solution for your educational needs” said Paula Curtiss, Founding Director for HH.  “As of October 1st, 2016, students became able to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2017-18 school year three months earlier than usual, and the process has been simplified. Now students have the convenience of using prior-prior year tax data so they can get college applications in before the start of the winter term in January”, she continued.

Completing a FAFSA is a student’s first step to getting federal money for education which includes subsidized and unsubsidized student loans, plus Pell Grants (Pell Grants do not require pay back).  The information on a FAFSA is also used by colleges, state governments and others to determine if the student qualifies for other types of financial aid or scholarships.  These may include but are not limited to: the Workplace Investment Opportunity Act (WIOA) Educational Funds, VA Benefits, Post 911 Veterans Benefits & Training, and Employment Development Department (EDD) Education & Training benefits.

 

For students interested in a career in Massage Therapy or as a Holistic Health Practitioner, HH is one of the few schools that is Nationally Accredited, State Approved (by CAMTC) and qualified to receive all forms of financial aid on behalf of students. For those who don’t qualify, or are awarded only partial benefits, HH offers in-house financing plans making a career as a Massage Therapist attainable to all who desire it, one of the school’s founding visions.

 

In the past, filing for financial aid involved researching your family’s tax returns and documents to complete a lengthy 10-page work-book.  Today, application is far less complicated as the on-line form is automatically filled using IRS data, cutting the filing process down to an average of 20 minutes.  Finding out if you qualify for financial aid is as easy as 1-2-3:

 

  1. Go online to: fafsa.ed.gov
  2. Click on: “Start a New FAFSA”
  3. Complete the online form

 

After filing, you will be sent a report on your eligibility for the Pell Grand and the amount you can expect to receive. Note:  If you are seeking a loan, fill out a Federal Direct Loan application along with your FAFSA at studentloans.gov.

 

According to the education advising site: Edvisors.com, nearly two million students who would have qualified for the Pell grant in the 2011-12 never applied, assuming they wouldn’t qualify.  Don’t let that happen to you!  Call HH to speak with a Financial Aid Advisor who will be happy to walk you through the process and address your individual concerns. Open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5:30 pm, call our Admissions Offices at 949-305-2722 for HH – Laguna Hills or (760) 746-9364 for HH – Escondido.

Holistic Massage School Talks Tax Deductions for Massage Therapists

With Tax Deadlines just around the corner, students at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health are asking, “If I open my own practice, what can I deduct as a legal business expense?”  In response we quote information posted at the IRS at www.irs.gov, that identifies two criteria which deem expenses valid; they must be ‘ordinary’ and ‘necessary’. 

An ‘ordinary’ business expense is defined as one commonly accepted in your trade. A ‘necessary’ expense is considered any expense helpful and appropriate for your trade. The IRS adds, “an expense does not have to be indispensable to be considered necessary”.  So, while legitimate expenses may vary from profession to profession, a valid business expense for Massage Therapists is basically anything one spends money on to run your practice.

Healing Hands Instructors suggest that students keep track of any expenses they incur after beginning a business that they had not incurred previously.  A few specific expenses include:

Supplies – face cradle covers, sheets, blankets, hand and face towels, holsters, massage oils, lotions, gels, boxed tissues, hand sanitizer, aromatherapies, candles, hot stones, complementary holistic products, cleaning supplies/sanitizers

Equipment – massage tables, table-warmers, table-covers, massage chairs, floor mast (Shiatsu / Thai massage), massage room fans, fresh water dispenser, CD player, CD’s and Theracane (MT self-care)

Accessories – body bolsters, breast pillows, pregnancy wedges, arm supports, side-tables and chairs

Laundry expenses– laundry service fees (for sheets), detergent, bleach, dryer sheets, washer/dryer for towels, blankets used for massage are all deductible expenses

Utilities – Some utilities like cellphones and electricity are often used for both personal and professional use.  Massage Therapists are urged to estimate the percentage of time an item is used for business, versus personal use use that sum to calculate percentage of cost, which you’ll use as a valid business expense.

Car Expenses – The IRS allows you to deduct auto expenses based on either actual car expenses or a standard mileage rate, currently at 53.5 cents per mile.  Be warned, however, that you can’t buy a car and deduct the purchase cost unless you take aggressive steps to make it an asset of your company.  Even as such, you’ll still need to keep track of your business versus personal use expenses.  Massage Therapists and Holistic Health Practitioners can search google for smart phone applications designed for this purpose specifically.  One such app is as MileIQ.

Since 1992, Healing Hands School’s top-notch Faculty have prepared more than 7,000 students for successful careers as Massage Therapists and are eager to do the same for YOU!  To learn more, visit us online at www.HealingHandsSchool.com or call us at (760) 746-9364/ Escondido or (949) 305-2722 /Laguna Hills.

Holistic Massage School Now Enrolling for CranioSacral Therapy

“Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic (whole person) approach to healing that recognizes the inter-connectedness of our minds, bodies and spirits” said Harmony Curtiss, Operations Manager for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health – Laguna Hills.   “It has proven to be an effective treatment for a wide range of illnesses as it encourages the body’s free flow of energy, promotes vitality and facilitates a greater sense of well-being.  Classes start on April 11th so I’m reminding all interested students to register by March 28th to ensure your spot this Spring.” she added. 

For more than 35 years, thousands of practitioners world-wide have demonstrated Craniosacral Therapy’s effectiveness, and its practice has evolved into a highly respected form of integrative therapy. Clinical applications include a wide-range of musculoskeletal, developmental, and neurological issues, as well as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorders. Additional conditions that benefit from craniosacral therapy include: headaches and migraines, chronic neck and back pain, central nervous system disorders, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, stress and tension-related problems, connective tissue disorders, neurovascular disorders and many more!

This Spring, HH’s 32-hour Craniosacral Therapy I course will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 5pm starting April 11th and ending on April 20th.  Students will learn how to use traditional techniques to facilitate a comfortable realignment of the soft tissue surrounding the cranial-sacral mechanism.  Students are given opportunity to develop their perception skills so they can tune in to the natural rhythms of the cerebrospinal fluid. By understanding how cerebrospinal fluid protects the brain and spinal cord, and its role in the nervous system, students can help restore natural balance for their clients and help them to re-boot of their  innate healing powers.

Craniosacral Therapy can be used as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with other massage and body-work modalities.  It is safe for use on all age groups including infants, children and the elderly.  Although soft and gentle in its application, the effects of Craniosacral Therapy on the mind and body are reported to be deep and profound.

In a typical treatment, the client lies on his or her back while the Therapist uses a gentle touch, usually no greater than 5 grams of pressure to induce relaxation.  Therapists also gently move joints including the cranial sutures which span the top of the head and accommodate subtle changes in intracranial pressure. Craniosacral therapists are taught to maintain a neutral presence and intention when practicing this therapy in order to foster self-healing.

Holistic Health Pioneer, Seymour Koblin Endorses Healing Hands School of Holistic Health

Seymour Koblin

Seymour Koblin

As 30 year veteran of San Diego’s Holistic Health and massage world, many people ask Seymour Koblin about the Holistic Health and Massage Therapy School scene in San Diego. Below is Seymour’s answer:

“In 1989 I began a Holistic Health and Massage school called School of Healing Arts in Pacific Beach/ San Diego California. We were one of 5 Holistic Schools including IPSB, Mueller College, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and Body Mind College. A few years later, Healing Hands School of Holistic Health, and two other schools opened in North County. All of these schools were created by Holistic Health conscious individuals who had years of experience in the Holistic Health field.

Fast forward to 2017, all of these, with the exception of Pacific College and Healing Hands, have closed down. The challenge of creating a balanced Holistic Health School with increasing regulations and standards dictated by Accrediting agencies, Federal Funding and other financing agencies were more than many of these schools could manage.

The common concern from the original schools was the difficulty of offering creative, heart-centered education while following the increased regulations. I am so happy to say that Healing Hands School of Holistic Health has met that challenge and is even adding a new campus in San Diego.  I believe Healing Hands captures the heart of Holistic Healing mostly because it is run by a Husband/Wife team, Paula and Neha Curtiss, long-time Holistic Health Practitioners who both administer and teach many of the classes. Their vision of Holistic Health and Massage prioritizes creativity, highly skilled technique that includes compassion as well as all the technical skills necessary for passing all State and National Exams. Healing Hands is Nationally Accredited, offers federal loans, WIA and VA benefits (to students who qualify), to help pay for their tuition.

When asked, what school should I go to for certification in San Diego, I can with complete confidence and long sought after relief provide an answer that honors my integrity. Healing Hands School of Holistic Health offers the Certification training necessary for Massage Therapists and Holistic Health Practitioners to create long lasting, rewarding and lucrative careers in the fulfilling field of Holistic Health and Massage. The quality work they have been teaching for so many years combined with an administrative team that operates with compassionate, and heart – centered business practices provides a foundation that students will carry into their successful practices. I recommend before you sign up anywhere, visit the schools in person. I’m pretty sure you will feel the same difference I and so many other students do at Healing Hands.”     – Seymour Koblin

Seymour Koblin is now offering continuing education classes and holistic health programs in various countries around the globe.  For more information write to Seymour@isoharts.com.
