Hawaiian Mat Massage™
Price of session:
Receive from master teacher and massage therapist Tarika Lea .
Licensed in three states with over 50 years experience. This method is unique in that it is able to support the body’s center of gravity by efficiently balancing the dynamics of the hips. Working close to the ground the body rests into an expanded feeling as it finds its natural rhythm and full breath. Patterns formed by injury or misuse melt gently with integrative slow pulsing and rocking techniques addressing the trigger points and fascial systems that free.
Some say It is like riding the surface of a calm ocean and at the same time embracing the sky of expansion and sinking into the earth’s gift of groundedness. The joy of greater range of movement can be experienced after the very first session. Many pain patterns can also be resolved through the web of imbalanced posture and habits. Be surprised at how energetically alive the body can feel no matter what its starting point may be!
Kama’aina special: $195 90-min
Private Sessions, at-home gathering classes & eventual on-line trainings.
Gentle Wind Meridian Raindrop – is the unique joining of traditions to include the Asian understanding of the energy streams of the body with the potency of a technique of applying 60 drops of therapeutic grade essential oils in a gentle layering technique followed by a warm moist compress.
Many have raved how their experience and the benefits received continues far beyond their session. Experience for yourself the subtleties of ingesting high frequency oils in the form of liquid herbs. In less than five minutes they are absorbed. In less than twenty they are distributed through the entire body. The last stage is that these high frequency oils do not accumulate in ones body and flush out within an hour! The amazing aspects of this ingestion is that unless the oils are still on ones clothing or skin the smell of their healing fragrances are simply gone. This leads me to believe after twenty years of working with them that the body says yes through the skin (considered the third kidney)

Another remarkable observation is that animals know these therapeutic oils to be beneficial. It has been my pleasure after so many years of massaging human bodies that I thrill to the uniqueness of massaging our canine companions. To add to their delight they love to be so thoroughly massaged.
The benefits of these oils simply adds that extra dimension of contribution to their health I cant resist but share. If you would like to participate in support to your loving companion; health consider learning these techniques of applications! I’ll throw in techniques of massage as a bonus.

A True Pioneer Tarika Lea’s dedication to self-reliance has formed a base of capabilities. Perhaps that came from living in Alaska alone for two decades! Her philosophy has been that education in life sciences and meditation is pre-eminent. It has been a lifetime quest to cultivate and accelerate awareness on all levels, personally and professionally. Those who have benefited by her extensive offerings would agree that she is most certainly a pioneer fresh with insights, an inspiration to stimulate the fire within our belly to go forth into the unknown, uncharted.
The School of Integrating Shiatsu Alaska The last fifty years in her profession in the healing arts has blossomed in establishing the first Alaska State authorized vocational massage school in 1992. It is still authorized to teach continuing education courses. Her courageous pioneering attitude is contagious as is her encouragement for developing a meditative life using a multitude of ways.
The Lea Method Her class offerings and personal sessions has benefited thousands. The Lea Method offers original hand-saving techniques in the Kata Massage Series™ and Hawaiian Mat Massage™ which has at its base highly valuable longevity keys for all massage therapists as well as those at all levels of practice. Ways to increase stamina through use of breath techniques as well as proper body and hand mechanics offers both safety and effectiveness. Her meditative approaches in navigating challenges into grounded changes are witnessed in her non-interference approach to therapy. Her studies have supported this wise approach. Those in her classes or take sessions with her are totally honored in ways that reveal their own best answers. With her intuitive skills she delights in the opportunity of reflecting accurately.
Highlights in her long list of accomplishments. Include designing self-care, practical methods within the techniques of massage. Though a ‘touch plus you’ system of awareness, strengthening and stretching techniques while giving sessions as well as the Keys to Longevity the art of touch is transformed.
The Hawaiian influence became foundational from her early apprenticeship of three years with Morrnah Simeona, Kahuna Lapa’au in 1969 on the island of Oahu. She has continued with deep roots of the extended studies of Huna. Participating in her offerings there is a distinct interweaving of wisdoms gleaned from the islands as well as the expanded views of the Eastern and Western pioneers that link body and mind. Her broad span of reach is ever present in all her offerings.
The Spirit of Aloha
The Hawaiian answer to dissention and indifference in both our individual lives as well as across the world can be found in the multilevel meanings within the word Aloha and its inspired use. Aloha is more than a greeting. It is a condition, a way of life, a mind set and an attitude expressing an over-all principle of love and care. Like many Hawaiian words it has many meanings. Consider cultivating Aloha in your own lives. The Spirit of Aloha is an attitude that offers a sharing of one’s being with openness, honesty and humility. As a way of being it reflects in how we make decisions and act. The resulting outcomes open interactions we may not have previously experienced. Living the Spirit of Aloha is a commitment to being authentic with one another, to being supportive to others and honoring who they are and what they have to offer. It’s Spiritual principles are foundational to how we can build stronger communities, with relatedness and communication.
