Chest and breast massage supports stress release, easy breathing, and comfortable, easy movement and pain relief for shoulders, chest, neck, jaws and back.
ABOUT THESE VIDEOS
I created these lomi lomi videos with intent to pass on to as many massage therapists as possible the information and skills I have developed over the past 45+ years that I've been giving massage. In my 60s now, I am committed to helping the next generation of massage therapists develop skills, and thrive.
I self-produced these videos. A friend and family member helped me film, done mostly in my home. I did all the editing myself. Self producing has allowed me to create these videos on a low budget, and make them available for you to learn from. Please bear with the occasional spots where the lighting or background noise is distracting.

I demonstrate massage of the chest/breast as I integrate it into holistic, full body, wellness focused sessions for my clients who desire it, and give consent. (3:35 minutes)

I teach a 16 CE chest and breast massage classes which fulfill the training requirements for massage therapists in Washington State established by WAC 246-830-555. These 6 videos, created in 2017, show the hands-on therapeutic treatment techniques I teach in this class.
