Lomi Lomi

A foundation course in holistic bodywork based on traditional Kahuna wisdom.

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 transcendental experience.

While 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.

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.

The training outlined here is only available to qualified massage therapists. Try the massage.
