Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018 ~,~ r=ngs PROFILES IN BUSINESS WORK OF HEART MASSAGE Marl Erin Roth Staff Writer Work of Heart Massage is a massage studio located inside the chiropractic off'me of Dr. Martin Sanford at 315 Main St. in Quincy. Business owner and practitioner Annie Holt is the creator of Work of Heart Massage, which specializes in lomilomi massage, the traditional Hawaiian style of massage passed down through generations of Hawaiian people. Work of Heart Massage opened its doors to Plumas County on Feb. 1. Licensed Massage therapist, founder and lomilomi practitioner, Holt said that she "is excited to share this ancient healing art with her mountain ohana (family)." Annie began her journey toward a career as amassage therapist in 2007 on the island of Oahu in Kailua. Upon graduating from the Aloha Institute of Massage and Healing Arts, she landed her first job at Lomflomi Hana Lima, also on Oahu. It was there that Annie achieved her long time dream of learning lomilomi massage. She studied under the guidance of Kumu Brenda Mohalapua Ignacio. Holt said, "My heart is full of gratitude for all that I learned during the 2 1/2 years I was able to study and practice at Lomilomi Hana Lima." After a move back to the mainland, Annie found her way to Kabuki Springs and Spa in San Francisco, where she practiced massage for 5 1/2 years and worked at another San Francisco location, Spa Vitale, for a year and a half. Holt brings with her over a decade of massage expertise and a deep-rooted passion for lomilomi. Holt says she continues to be inspired by her training from traditional practitioners in the islands. "As my love for my work (lomilomi) deepens with experience, so does my understanding that lomilomi is a way of life and a spiritual practice," said Holt. "It is about sharing Aloha and being Pono (in balance)." Holt describes, "As my Kumu (teacher) said, lomilomi is a heart space." It is from that "heart space" that Holt says she was motivated to create Work of Heart Massage with the healing intention to bring a touch of Aloha to Quincy. "In receiving lomilomi massage it is helpful to understand that it is from a space of Aloha that lomilomi massage comes fomth," said Holt, "and to understand that space, it is good to know what Aloha means." Aunty Pilahi Paki was a keeper of the secrets of Hawaii. "She describes it perfectly in her acronym for ALOHA," said Holt: Akahai - kindness, to be expressed with tenderness; Lokahi- unity, to be expressed with harmony; Oluolu - agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness; Haahaa, - humility, to be expressed with modesty; Ahonui - patiencel to be expressed with perseverance. Annie Holt creates a peaceful space for Iomilomi Sanford in Quincy.

Bucks Lake Road resident Amber Takone noticed all the walkers who amble past her house toward town. She found two benches for sale at a thrift shop and decided to do something nice for her neighbors. She set up the benches with a small table between them at the edge of her property during the fi rst week in August-- right before she left on a business trip Aug. 13, so walkers could rest for a moment or two When she came home Aug. 23, they were gone. "I just wanted to do something nice for the neighborhood," Takone said. She added that the benches had built in storage. She'd placed games in there and books and had signs indicating that people could borrow a book or play a game there, but that the games and the benches and table were meant for everyone to share. The bench robbers took everything: the benches, table, games, books, even the sign on the table that said "Read." "Anyone who knows me knows that I'd be happy to help someone who needed something if they asked," Takone said. She'dlike her stuffback so she can again share with the community.
