How We Flow
+ An initial conversation: I listen deeply to your current state of mind, body, and emotions, and learn how you'd like to feel
+ Rhythmic, nurturing massage + energy work that touches, blesses and integrates the entire body
+ Closing energy sealing + relaxation time
+ Emotional cleansing / release feelings of separation
+ Increased immunity through better lymph circulation
+ Relief of muscular tension
+ Heightened body awareness:
what movements create joy?
+ Well-being, harmony within the body-psyche
+ Increased receptivity to self-love & love from others
I offer my own intuitive style of bodywork that is rooted in the tradition of Heartworks Lomi Lomi. This practice renews the body, calms the mind, and calls you home to a heartbeat of pleasure, tenderness & resilience.
I share deep listening, creative sacred touch, and reverence for the path you are walking.
Lomi Lomi is a healing art from Hawaii that uses long flowing strokes reminiscent of ocean waves to invite the receiver into a meditative state of delight, the place where the nervous system can soften into relaxation, and allow healing.
Lomi Lomi relaxes your muscles in a way I have never experienced before.
-John D., Minneapolis
I didn't realize I had been holding tensions (physically, emotionally, energetic) around my heart. It felt wonderful to be held in a loving space to allow some of those walls to crumble. Lomi Lomi anchors you deeply into the experience of the body in a very gentle way. It's energetic and powerful, but subtle and grounding. Opal uses long, gentle movements to assist the open flow of energy. It leaves you feeling grounded, present, calm, and happy!

After our session, I felt myself being very mindful about how I was interacting with the world around me. I took Opal's advice and made sure to breathe during moments of stress. Additionally, the massage made me very relaxed and able to talk and deal with people in my life in a very open and honest way. John D.
Light touch, caring, intimate/connected, hydrating & restorative. Mark H.
This is a powerful healing technique that feels very gentle to the body, but that has a deep effect. Feels a bit like little, lapping ripples at the shoreline have dissolved away long-held tension, opened blockages, and not only quieted the discordant tones of pain, but reintegrated them into the larger, more harmonious symphony of body.
There is a reverence to Opal's touch that disarms the body's resistances & communicates loving compassion through human contact.
I've been experiencing a deeper calm, a sense of gently flowing in the subtle rhythms of the Universe, balanced, and at ease. Joseph Wild
Totally relaxing and recharging. I've been feeling motivated and happier. Kevin Bell
I felt really cared for...I felt at peace. Pete A.
Sweeping movements clearing tension and stagnant energy, relaxing, dreamy, blissful, nurturing... I felt blessed, connected...There was a major release of grief that was VERY powerful and transformative, cathartic: it made a lasting impact on my overall healing journey.

Lomi Lomi is nurturing and supports gentle detoxification which is exactly what I was looking for at the time and is now one of my preferred styles...I had a much deeper experience of gratitude for myself, for life and for that hour on the table in the lap of luxury created from the lovely Opal's touch. I know it is a result of the compounded intentionality and care behind every move. Opal's knack for creating sacred space truly spiraled the session into a more prism like experience for me... a sacred act of self-care.
