Hawaiian lomilomi massage is unique in all of the ways that Hawai’i is unique.  Lomilomi acknowledges and appreciates the influence of Hawaii’s natural environment on its healing practices. This training provides a foundation in lomilomi that is appropriate for use in a spa setting or within the family.

Malia introduces bodywork in the first lesson, so look forward to giving and receiving massage in every session! Each weekly session builds upon the last so that lessons and themes are intertwined.

Topics in the training include, but are not limited to, Hawaiian terminology for the course, opening and closing protocols, palpation, using the bones as guides, and body systems found in nature. To complement the lomilomi massage techniques, students also learn relevant components of oli (chanting), hula (dance), pule (prayer) and ‘olelo (language). Lei-making develops skills in the hands and fingers and illustrates the importance of a firm yet sensitive touch. Students will also learn the significance of the moon throughout this training.

This particular lomilomi training, focused on Finding Your Voice, helps you to develop your voice that is heard as well as your intuitive, inner voice.  We will explore various kinds of Hawaiian prayers and participants will learn to compose prayers for their own use. Prayer is common to all lomilomi lineages. It connects us to the divine and to the ancestors, and acknowledges that healing comes through us and not from us.

This lomilomi massage training, focused on “Finding Your Voice”, is one of 8 complementary training programs, each 16 hours long. Malia will give this current “Voice” training for 2 hours each on consecutive Sundays. Sometimes Kumu Malia compresses her training into a single weekend intensive, also 16 hours long. As a whole, her 8 complementary programs, each with its own focus, provide 128 hours of training that comprises her full culturally-based approach to lomilomi massage.

Expanding Touch Techniques and Enhancing Sensitivity Principal Certification. Modules 1-3 are pre-requisites for this course. “Thai massage is as good to give as it is to receive” – we have already explored this concept in our practice by using efficient and safe biomechanics. This course will extend this idea to the use of our different “tools” when massaging.

Course content includes:

– Exploring greater use of our feet, knees and forearms in the application of massage pressure and muscle manipulation techniques to improve practitioner and client experience,

– Developing our touch sensitivity in these larger areas of our body so that we can use them for the full spectrum of pressure from superficial to deep touch,

– Comparing the use of different tools for different postures. This will help us see if a new touch technique will replace or add onto a previously used technique taking us deeper into the pose,

– The addition of another hour of massage postures to add into our existing repertoire,

– Discussions on how these new touch techniques impact our ability to customize our treatments.

In this module, we will once again revisit and consolidate knowledge gained from previous courses and build from there. After this course you will have a complete 3-hour massage sequence that will allow you to provide a total body experience for your clients. Once the requirements for this training are complete, you will also be eligible to apply for Principal Certification.

This training focuses on:

– Exploring the idea and practice of customization. Both in terms of the entire massage sequence as well as individual postures. This will encourage greater expression of your own massage “flavour” and it will allow creativity and intuition to play a larger role in your treatments,

– Opening the doors into Sen line work by learning one of the major pathways in our bodies and being introduced to marma points,

– Adding an abdomen massage into the sequence and discussing its applications and appropriate use,

– Bridging the gap between the science of anatomy and the wisdom of Thai massage as energy work.

Tara thai massage profile photoEach one of our core modules is run over 3 consecutive days for a total of 8 hours each day (9-5). These classes place a lot of emphasis on getting in and practicing the techniques directly so that you immediately start getting hands-on experience. Module 1  AUG 7 – 9 sets a solid foundation in the practice of high quality touch. We do this by combining some anatomy with positive intention and our physical practice. When exchanging massages in class you are receiving in-depth feedback from your classmates and the teacher as well as gaining a new understanding of the postures when you receive the massage. This first course will provide you with a sound 45-minute flow that focuses on the most common areas of tension, namely the shoulders, neck and back.

In Module 2  AUG 10 – 12 we revisit and enhance our understanding of content from the first module. We then delve deeper into the concepts of quality touch and extend our massage sequence to explore more of the body. By adding in more postures to include the arms, legs, hands and feet, we will end up with a 2-hr massage sequence. In the 3rd Module, we consolidate and extend our practice from the first 2 courses to produce a well-rounded and more complete massage flow. After this course you will be able to give a fluid 2.5-hr massage, providing a total mind-body experience. We also explore some useful ways to customize the massage to make sure you’re comfortable with both longer and shorter length treatments and to best suit the needs of your client.

After Module 3 and some home practice you will be eligible for Principal Certification.
