       The recipients of this technique experience consistent benefits from release of deep seated tensions that
cause chronic pain to restorative deep relaxation. Even after receiving the Kata Massage Level One massage
from a student of 80 hours training results can be significant.  

Using the Three Basic Hand Positions unique to this method and adding from the large bank of variations
through learning all of the Katas in the Kata Massage Series can bring one to a master level in massage and The
Lea Method.    

A dynamic body supported system of massage that protects your joints from fatigue and makes the best use
of your body weight.  It is likened unto a dance involving not just your hands but the rhythm and flow of your body
and breath as it is united with movement.
  With precision in every move, hand position and pressure point coupled with sensitivity in opening the body’s
energy flows one not only assists the muscle system but also all of the body systems to revitalize and energize.
This integration aspect strengthened with body/mind grounding techniques associated with learning this method
greatly deepens the quality of ones touch laying the foundation for the body’s ability for self healing.  

Eastern, Western and Hawaiian based Benefit from both the Eastern vision of seeing the body as electric and
learn methods of bringing the systems to balance. Also enjoy the Western approach to understanding the body
through form where the science of tissue release is joined with stretch and use of the breath. To weave this unique
method into its signature of effectiveness the Hawaiian influence of healing approaches brings to you a system
that can even be life changing to both the giver and receiver.

A SPECIAL INFLUENCE OF THE ISLANDS Providing that quality where true healing happens is the ‘Aloha’ of
massage -  trusting one’s heart and hands as one gives from the deepest essence of  their hearts.  Learning ways
to access this abundant stream of healing,  benefits both giver and receiver alike and  sets this unique style of
massage aside as most beneficial to receive and to give.
