Lomi Lomi Hawaiian massage

Barbara Helynn Heard, LMP



I teach classes in Washington State, the northeast (various states) and occasionally elsewhere on request.  The classes range from 2 hour introduction classes to a 12 day residential immersion class.  These classes are NCBTMB approved provider #287333.

  • Do you dream of helping yourself and others manifest unlimited healing potential?
  • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to feel and easily visualize the tissues deep within your recipient's body, as if you could see right through their skin?
  • Would you like to know deep in your bones how to help your clients heal injured tissues, or and even injured spirits, and to have that inner knowing be second nature for you?  
  • Would you like to be confident giving massage for the conditions listed in the table below?
  • Would you like to work both clinically and with mind-body-spirit connection at the same time?

I offer  massage sessions at my office on Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington.

Many of my clients are dancers, musicians, performers, massage therapists and other health practitioners, and regular participants in various fitness classes. Lots of my clients are people who are 50 or more years young and are committed to maintaining, or better yet increasing, their health and vitality as they age.

My clients appreciate the special attention I give to helping them increase their body awareness and improve their posture.  I've found that the more specifically we feel our bodies, the easier it is to move with grace and power.  To that end I integrate somatic awareness movement exploration into most of my massage sessions as an educational process of muscular retraining.

These are are some of the chronic ailments I have helped clients
heal and recover from, and/or live with:
  • Back and neck pain, including whiplash and disc problems
  • joint and muscular pain and dysfunction in the back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees and more
  • joint replacement
  • surgery preparation & recovery
  • sciatica
  • injuries from accidents, falls and repetitive use arthritis
  • lupus
  • fibromyalgia
  • headaches
  • asthma and other breathing problems
  • depression
  • emotional pain related to loss
  • high stress lifestyle
  • cancer
  • Parkinson's disease
  • poor or problematic posture
  • pregnancy
