Traditional Thai Massage and Hawaiian Lomilomi training in Miami, Florida
Welcome to Sacred Bodywork!
Open spaces for personal and professional growth and enhance your touch. Go beyond technique and explore the possiblity of healing mind, body and spirit. Here is our special invitation to join us in our mission: To share and expand the circle of Aloha and Metta to encompass the world.
Sacred Bodywork offers massage continuing education seminars, residential and non-residential retreats in the USA, Europe and Thailand and workshops for spas, healing arts centers, massage therapists, personal trainers yogis and bodyworkers who wish to add a new dimension to their work. Our approach follows the Eastern belief that we are all beings of energy with physical form. Purely mechanical work only treats one aspect of the whole; therefore, truly transformational work must address the energetic being, as well. In all of our workshops, regardless of technique, we teach students to work with energy to make their work even more effective. If you are looking for a certification and NCBTMB, Florida or Louisiana State massage continuing education hours for re-licensing, we will provide you the opportunity to learn and practice in one of our massage and bodywork intensive programs.

Upcoming Courses in Homestead, Florida

In these Chakra courses, participants will learn more about the energetic body, properties and challenges posed in each Chakra, along with hands-on techniques to address the blockages.
Courses are offered once per month in the series to allow participants to digest and process the information before proceeding to the next level. The 2014 remaining schedule is as follows:

Thai Facial Massage - 16 NCBTMB/ Florida State CE hours
Very often, the face does not get much attention during a massage but it is one of the most sacred aspects of the massage. Energetically you can work the entire body through the energy lines of the face and you are addressing the highest chakras. In this class, you will learn great hands-on techniques and three specific massage protocols for the face, neck and shoulders from the Thai massage tradition to add to your skill set.

Our Special Guests this year: Kumu Karen Leialoha Carroll and Kahuna Harry Uhane Jim
Sacred Bodywork is blessed to have two special quests again this year sharing their mana'o with us: Kumu Karen Leialoha Carroll. She will be teaching Hawaiian values, Hawaiian chants, Ho'oponopono of the emotional body, listening for messages of spirit, opu huli and healing with shells; and Harry Uhane Jim one of the last Kahuna of Lomilomi, Keeper of the Deep Mysteries of authentic Hawaiian esoterica. He will share the secrets of this ancient oral tradition with us in 'Wise Secrets of Aloha' and facilitate Ho'oponopono. Recognizing that the world is in great peril, Kahuna Harry Uhane was blessed by the Halau Guardians who instructed him to share the true teachings and tools of Lomilomi for the practice of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
"Now is the time to share aloha with humanity." ~Harry Uhane Jim
