Joanna Polkowska has a decade of experience in Hawaiian massage, Lomi Lomi. She studied in accordance with Kahu Abraham Kawai’i’s teachings at the very source of his legacy. Among her teachers are Susan Pa’iniu Floyd founder of Kino Mana and Ho’okahi Tamara Stephens, the late Kahu’s wife and co-founder of Nā Pua ‘Olohe.
The course of Joanna’s work is intuitive and manifests differently every time she handles a session. Her creative inspiration comes from nature, movement, dance, music, art, people. Basic studies of Bodymapping, Gentle Bio-Energetics (Eva Reich), Polarity, Reiki (Mikao Usui), sound and aromatherapy broaden her understanding of complex and subtle human nature.
“Our body is a vessel of infinite wisdom and fine image of the universe. Look at the beauty of its curves that imply all polarities of both strength and gentleness. Or its magnificent flexibility within range of movement and capability to fully regenerate. Let’s courageously seek our well-being by listening and understanding our bodies and respectfully responding to their needs.”
