~ The Massage & Healing Arts of Hawaii! ~
Passed down through generations of master healers, this is an immersion into the sacred healing practices of Hawaii to care for the whole body-mind-spirit. These arts are rich in tradition and culture.
Expertly weaving together long and flowing, rhythmic, ocean-like strokes, elegant pressure point therapies, expert knowledge of the body, stretch, and masterful healing energy work using the elemental forces of nature, Lomilomi can assist your client's entire being to open, to awaken, to remember, and to reside once again in a state of unity. Much more than just "Hawaiian massage", this is a powerful and complete esoteric wisdom of nature, life, and the processes of health and regeneration.
This workshop series will be taught in as close to the old ways as possible in modern context. It is rich lineage wisdom passed from generation to generation, and we continue those practices today. It will open and close with chant and ritual as these teaching have been done for centuries. We will learn and practice traditional chants for the healing qualities of sound as well as the effective hands-on methods. It will present the vision of healing from the perspective of the culture and spirituality of old Hawaii. To omit these things is to remove the wisdom of lomi and render it simply as "massage".
"Do I need to be a massage therapist to attend?"
No. Lomi was and remains a family tradition. Family takes care of family. However, if your intention is to work professionally in the future, you will need a massage license in most states."
