Ola Ha Therapy (body work)
OLA HA = breath of life. Ola Ha Therapy is the name I have coined for the type of musculoskeletal release work that I do. I have been doing bodywork for 30 years and during that time I have trained and practiced many techniques. These have ranged from Deep tissue therapies including Rolfing, Shiatsu/Kiatsu, and neuromuscular technique to lighter therapies including Orthobionomy, Craniosacral Therapy, Sacro-Occipital Technique, Reiki, and Polarity with many shades inbetween. I have blended together many of the best aspects of each of these therapies into my work which integrates the breath with the release process. I use positional release with active muscle resistance and physiotherapy modalities in combination with joint manipulation and mobilization. Learn more here.
