About Barbara

Using Mana Lomi®, a clinically focused yet spiritually grounded form of Hawaiian lomilomi massage, I help recipients to feel and know their bodies well. I help recipients to move fluidly, to heal damaged tissues, and to heighten their awareness of their inner and outer beauty and strength.

I especially enjoy working with dancers, musicians and other people who use their bodies as instruments. I also enjoy working with elders, with people experiencing chronic pain, with people longing for healthy touch and with people grieving loss.

Mana Lomi ® is both gentle and deep, and flows with a soothing rhythm. It includes circulatory strokes, compressions, stretches, joint rotations, energetic work, use of thoughts, meditation, prayer, and more. Mana Lomi® can energetically reach to the ‘depth of the bones’, or ‘soul deep’ as Hawaiians believe, allowing full healing to take place if so desired.

I’ve been giving massage for 35 years - since I was teenager. I’ve been a licensed massage practitioner offering lomilomi in my Seattle based private practice since graduating from Brian Utting School of Massage in 1996.

I accept any insurance plans that accept out of network, or who don't work with the network system. I see clients with PIP auto insurance claims and L&I claims. I also see clients with some Health Insurance policies. For example, the City of Seattle's plan with AETNA, First Choice Health Administrators with Swedish Hospital, Premera Blue Cross with the Seattle School district and some Regence Blue Shield policies all accept out of network providers. If you would like to deerminie whether your insurance plan will pay for treatment with me, please give me a call.

I also teach Mana Lomi® continuing ed classes in both Washington State and New England. Please see my website for more details. www.lomilomi-massage.org.
