Shawn Marie Flynn
Licensed Massage Therapist
I began my studies of massage and bodywork at East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland Oregon in 2001. I completed six hundred and fifty hours in massage and bodywork at East West College. My first areas of interest were Acupressure, Tui Na, Thai Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Prenatal Massage, and Hot Stone Massage. In 2006, I completed an intensive course with Hawaiian Temple Bodywork in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. I traveled to North Shore of Maui to study Lomi Lomi. Lomi is a powerful deep massage technique that is passed on to the student from the Kahuna or Shaman. This bodywork is deep, penetrating and effective. It embraces the whole being for complete soul healing. In 2007, I studied Ho Pono Pono with Dr Maka Ala Yates. Ho Pono Pono is all about achieving balance and harmony and putting it into our work and daily lives.
For the past nine years I have combined massage with Reiki. I have received Level One and Two Reiki Training, Advanced Reiki Training, Reiki Master Level Training, and The Karuna Reiki Master Level Training from William Rand's International Center for Reiki Training(ICRT). The lineage of my Reiki Training is Dr Usui who passed on this powerful healing modality. Reiki is a from of Energy Healing. In addition Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki Master level. Reiki can alleviate stress, help anxiety, fatigue, post traumatic stress, pain, depression, chi blockages, and grief. It heals the body, mind and Spirit.
I combine the modalities I learned from East West College with the theories and practices I have gained from my Lomi Lomi training to provide thorough and effective Massage and Bodywork to the clients of Spa Manzanita. I individualize each session to target the needs of my clients and address specific goals. I believe deeply in the Healing Touch. What better place to receive deep healing than in the heart of Manzanita. Currently I am working on my new line of Organic Body Products called Healing Mind and Body available at Spa Manzanita. I combine organic ingredients with Organic Essential Oils for Salves, Butters, Creams, Balms and Infused Oils!! All my products are infused with Healing Energy. I love the Body Butter! I use it when doing massage and it is amazing!! Come see us at Spa Manzanita!
Aloha And Mahalo!!
