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 also learn the significance of the moon throughout this training.

This particular lomilomi training, entitled “A Basis of Touch”, focuses on developing the essential skills of palpation. We explore the skin and muscular systems of the body.  We also delve into the therapeutic use of hot towels.


This “Basis of Touch” lomilomi massage training is one of 8 training programs, each 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.

Malia will give this current training compressed into a single 16 hour weekend intensive.

Kumu Malia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helela  strives to live a life of grace. She began her formal training in lomilomi as a teenager. She was licensed by the State of Hawaii as a massage therapist in 1998 and as an esthetician in 2002. Her hula practice and lomilomi practice, she says, are the same. Her hula halau, which meets at Still & Moving Center, is Na Hula Ola Aloha. Completing her ‘uniki under Pulu’elo Park, Kumu Hula,  in 2002, Kumu Malia now teaches hula and oli to a wide range of students, from infants and toddlers to kupuna. Malia studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under John Keola Lake, Kumu Hula. She has received her advanced lomilomi training from Kumu Keola Chan. She continues to look to the beauty and grace of the Hawaiian environment for grounding and inspiration.


Mālia Ko’i’ulaokawaolehua Helelā

Kumu Mālia is beloved by students around the globe for her kind heart and loving style of teaching, not to mention her deep knowledge, beautiful voice and exquisite dancing. She is a traditionally graduated kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner/trainer, as well as a cultural consultant for Still & Moving Center.

Malia Helela completed her hula ʻuniki (graduation) under Kumu Hula Puluʻelo Park in 2002, and studied oli (traditional Hawaiian chant) under Kumu Hula Keola Lake. Malia has been teaching both practices ever since to a wide range of students, from infants to kupuna, and leading her halau (school), Nā Hula Ola Aloha. Kumu Malia has personally taught thousands of hula students in Hawaii. Additionally, the many Japanese hula teachers whom she has trained over the years teach hundreds of their own students in Japan using the style, method and philosophy of Kumu Malia’s hula lineage.

Kumu Malia considers her hula practice and lomilomi practice to be two parts of the same whole. From her 20 years of lomi experience, she developed a 128 hour massage training program of her own called Puana Lomilomi, based on the intertwined practices of lomilomi, hula, pule, oli and lei-making.

As a member of Ka Pā o Lonopūhā, Malia participates in the sharing of native Hawaiian healing arts that focus specifically on lomi aʻe and elements of haki kino, laʻau lapaʻau and hoʻoponopono. Malia regularly teaches lomilomi for the Salvation Armyʻs Womenʻs Way program representing their cultural healing classes for women in recovery.

As an ambassador and guest lecturer of Hawaiian culture, Malia has delivered presentations for Leeward Community College, the Hawaii Yoga Institute, Outrigger Reef on the Beach, Mid Pacific Institute, Hawaiʻi Pacific University, Manoa Cottage, Honolulu Theater for Youth, numerous groups of International middle and high school students and Still & Moving Center. Kumu Mālia Helelā is currently researching and writing a trilogy of historic novels centered on the Kawehewehe and Kalia area. As a kumu hula and lomilomi practitioner, she looks to the ‘āina, the land, for grounding and inspiration.

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.

“Finding Your Voice”, is one of 8 complementary lomilomi massage training programs, each 16 hours long. Malia will give this current “Voice” training compressed  into a single weekend intensive, 16 hours long.
