Lomi Lomi Training
Lomi Lomi is the practice of Hawaiian Healing through touch. Although often referred to as “Hawaiian Massage” we refer to it as Hawaiian Bodywork. There are many different styles of Lomi Lomi which can change by family, regions (called Ahupua’a) and island! Our approach to training is to teach more than the Lomi Lomi techniques.
We ensure each student has a firm understanding of the culture, the correct protocols and the healing foundations first so you know where and how Lomi Lomi fits into the overall framework of Hawaiian healing, thinking and living. With all that extra information, you start out as a confident Practitioner - you can share more about Lomi Lomi and answer the many questions your clients ask of you, knowing each time the answers you give are absolutely correct.
Training is in two formats - residential/retreat style and non-residential - and includes Pre-requiste Classes with Kumu Pa'a Lawrence Aki. The "Living Classroom" with Kumu Pa'a Lawrence Aki is live from Hawaii.
