The KCC professional massage therapy students delivered 58 hours of Lomilomi Massages on Lei Day in the Nursing Division at the college. The eighty-minute sessions were received by 43 of the faculty, staff, and community 'ohana.
Primarily using rhythmic movement of their hands, forearms, and bodies, the massage students enhanced wellness by improving circulation, reducing waste products and lactic acid, stimulating the lymphatic system, easing edema, increasing healing of injuries, relieving muscle spasms, increases metabolism and restoring vitality.
In addition to the physical benefits, the releasing of mis-emotions, worries, fears, anxieties and other limiting beliefs had profound results.
"Without a doubt, all the receivers floated from their sessions. Evaluations showed stunning results."
– Virginia Dunas, LMT, Massage Program Coordinator
