A foundation course in holistic bodywork based on traditional Kahuna wisdom.While the healing potential of Lomi Lomi is greater than many other massage
styles, its practical application in our increasingly regulated society is
diminishing. However for the therapist in clinical practice, the benefits of Lomi
Lomi include greater comfort while massaging in terms of how to maintain a
better posture and new ways to access hard to release muscles.
For healing, personal growth and transformation
Lomi Lomi style holistic bodywork is often referred to as 'the Rolls Royce of
massage' and its best known for the deeply relaxing long strokes that sweep the
body from tip to toe, over and under, massaging two areas simultaneously and fully engaging the
senses so that stress evaporates. As well as being deeply healing, this massage
style can also be a divine or
Lomi Lomi or Kahuna style massage is thought of as having its roots in Hawaii and
other Pacific Islands, it has many modern counterparts where in the USA it's
known as Esalen
massage, Chiromassage in Russia and Holistic Bodywork in other places.
There are Lomi Lomi teachers world wide and many videos available presenting
many different interpretations. The American regulatory system has so restrained
Lomi Lomi that it is no longer recognisable as Lomi Lomi. Some Australian
teachers like Tracey Lakainapali are reputed to run excellent courses that are
true to the spirit of the massage.
The Hawaiian word Lomi Lomi can mean 'going to and from', 'to knead', 'to
squeeze' or 'to make soft' and other similar definitions. In Pukui and
Elbert's Hawaiian dictionary Lomi Lomi is described as "to work in and out, as
the claws of a contented cat." But for a person raised in the Pacific, lomi lomi
simply means massage and this massage style varies according to each
practitioners interpretation and ability. One may ask if it is like a Swedish
massage but it's not, it's a praying
work as each student learns to connect with the divine.
