Bernadette Griebenow, Licensed Massage Therapist
I have been practicing lomilomi Hawaiian massage in my home country of South Africa since 2003 and teaching lomilomi since 2006. My journey & continuing discovery of the healing & harmonizing effects of massage is a personal one. When I receive massage my mind returns to stillness, I connect with my breath, and my Being. I feel peace and vitality returning to my body.
My focus as a massage therapist is to provide a safe and protected healing space where you are able to step away from the busyness of life and have time for You. Just You. Where everything just stops for a moment, allowing you to re-group, recalibrate, reset. These moments of nurturing quietude are essential to our well-being.
I am a graduate of the Maui Academy of Healing Arts in Kihei and a licensed massage therapist in the State of Hawai’i. I have furthered my lomilomi studies with Kumu on Kaua’i, Moloka’i, Maui and Hawai’i Island. I am a member of the Hawaiian Lomilomi Association. My current studies are with Kumu Haunani Hopkins of Kealakekua.
I am delighted to be a part of the Life Fitness Center ‘Ohana where all of our individual strengths & offerings contribute towards wholeness of the individual.
