Join us for the day to explore this sacred form of Hawaiian bodywork. Although the term kahuna lomilomi is widely used in contemporary writings, traditionally the people who performed lomilomi were called ka poʻe lomilomi (the massage people) or kanaka lomi (massage person).
In the Hawaiian language, the word lomi means to knead, rub or soothe, to work in and out. The massage session is filled with beautiful, long, sweeping strokes similar to a Hula dance. In fact, as part of the Lomi training you will learn the traditional Hula dance. You might have heard that Lomi can really save your hands. Well…it does. A lomi session is revered for its spiritual healing results. Participants during this primarily hands-on workshop will explore the Hawaiian principles for conscious touch and learn some of the great energetic healing techniques performed in an actual Lomi Lomi session. You will have plenty of time to learn it and practice on each other.
